La Viola ended their campaign with a 0-0 draw at the Stadio Ezio Scida Saturday, but one of Crotone’s players could line up for them next season
Super Eagles striker Simy Nwankwo could be a Fiorentina player next season after the club signified their interest in taking him away from Crotone.
Crotone President Gianni Vrenna had already confirmed that the Nigerian international would leave the club this summer, and Fiorentina are one of the clubs interested in him.
According to Tuttomercatoweb, La Viola’s Sporting director Joe Barone has identified Simy as one of the club’s potential transfer targets this summer.
Fiorentina played a 0-0 draw against Crotone in their final Serie A game of the season, providing Simy with the chance to impress against his potential employers.
Although he did not score, it was a record-breaking season for the Nigerian international. The 29-year-old scored 20 league goals for the second consecutive season, having also scored the same number for Crotone in the Serie B last season.
Simy is just the second African player after Samuel Eto’o to reach the 20 goal mark in a single Italian top-flight season.
He also became Crotone’s all-time top scorer this season, while he’s now Nigeria’s highest-scoring player in a single season in Europe’s top five leagues.
