Italian serie A giants Lazio join race to sign 19 goals Nigerian star

According to, Italian serie A giants Lazio have joined the race to sign Super Eagles of Nigeria and Crotone of Italy star Simmy Nwankwo in the Summer transfer window.

The super eagles star has been superb for the serie B team this season, scoring 19 goals in all competitions. His excellent form has never gone unnoticed, as he has been linked with a move away from the promotion chasing Crotone.

Simmy Nwankwo's contract with Crotone is sets to runout in the summer of 2021/2022 season, and he has been offered a new contract by Crotone but he's yet to extend his contract.

The 28 years old is valued at €1.70 million by Transfermarkt, and Lazio are looking forward to adding the Nigerian star to their rank next season.
