The Crusaders are currently languishing in the bottom half of the Serie B table, but they have added more firepower to their attack as they attempt to improve on their position
Parma have completed the signing of Simy Nwankwo from Salernitana on a six-month loan deal with an option to buy.
The Italian club announced the deal on their social media pages and website as they try to make a late push for promotion to the Italian top-flight.

Parma are getting a player with enough Italian football experience in Simy. The Super Eagles striker scored 20 league goals in the 2019/2020 Serie B season, which helped Crotone gain promotion to the top-flight.
Simy repeated the trick in Serie A last season to become Nigeria’s all-time top scorer in Italy’s top division. But his goals could not save Crotone from relegation, who then loaned out the Nigerian to the newly-promoted Salernitana.
However, Simy has not been able to replicate the same form for the Garnets, with just one goal in 19 league appearances this season.
