Serie A

Genoa and Udinese show interest in Nigerian striker with 16 goals in Italy

Two Italian clubs Genoa and Udinese, are interested in signing Nigerian striker Simeon Tochukwu Nwankwo. The 28-year striker has been on form, scoring sixteen goals in thirty games for Crotone. 

The 28-year-old, who joined Crotone in 2016 from Gil Vincente - is likely to move to a new club. Crotone sits bottom of the Serie A table with fifteen points from thirty games. It is unlikely he will be returning to Serie B with the Pythagoreans.

According to Tutto Udinese, both Udinese and Genoa are interested in signing the Nigerian striker ahead of the 2020/2021 season. Both teams are twelfth and thirteenth on the log. 

 Simy Nwankwo's contract with Crotone expires in the summer of 2022 and, the club will want to cash in on him this summer to prevent leaving for free at the end of his contract. 

The Nigerian striker is the highest goal scorer in the Pythagoreans history - with sixty-two goals in 151 games. 

He has four appearances for the Super Eagles and made his debut for Nigeria in a 1-1 draw against DR Congo. Simy was named in Nigeria's 23-man squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup and made two appearances - at the competition.
