The attacker, who has just over a year remaining on his contract showed Udinese what they would be getting as he scored a penalty in Saturday's 2-1 loss against the same club.
His composure from the spot is one of his selling points, having expertly converted his last seven penalties. Simy also hit the post in the game and was a constant threat against Udinese.
The red-hot striker is in the best form of his career, having scored in his last seven league matches - a feat no African player has ever achieved in Serie A.
Simy's legendary status at Crotone is also not in doubt as he bagged 20 goals to power the club to Serie A last term and he's the club's all-time top-scorer.
The 28-year-old is currently the fourth-highest goalscorer in the Italian league this season with 17 goals and also holds the record of most goals scored by a Nigerian in a single season of a top-5 European league alongside Yakubu Aiyegbeni.
Yakubu, who played for several English clubs notched 17 league goals for Blackburn during the 2011/12 season and Simy now has the opportunity to break the record when Crotone face Sampdoria in midweek.
Keep shining Simy
