Lazio Target Summer Move For Simy Nwankwo

Lazio are interested in signing Nigeria forward Simy Nwankwo from Serie B club Crotone this summer, reports Completesports.com.

The 28-year-old has scored 18 goals in 34 league appearances for Crotone this season.

Perugia’s Pietro Lemmello has also scored 18 times in Serie B this season,  with both vying for the top scorer award.


Lazio according to m.tuttosalernitana.com are closely monitoring the striker and could lure him to Rome this summer.

Nwankwo joined the Pythagoreans from Portuguese outfit Gil Vicente in the summer of 2016.

He signed a three-year contract extension with the club in May 2019.

  • Truely truely, hard work pays.

    but i still hope you still get better suitors if you are to leave crotone this summer because you will definately play as second choice striker to Immobile if you end up in Lazio which won’t help your career considering your age.
    if a big club that wins atleast one or two trouphies per season comes with a good offer both financially and in terms of regular playing time,make sure you sin bcox you need trouphies in your carbinate at the moment.
    wish you all the best in the Serie B golden boot race.

    Kelechi Nwankali is in the starting IX for the first time since joining Huesca SD

    lets see what he can offer.
    the game is on going.

    No, Immobile isn’t an obstruction. He operates from the wings just like Salah/Name does and scores most time or he’s been paired in a 2-Man attack line like they did against Juventus today. If they come calling, it won’t be a bad idea. It is good to know they will be playing in the Champions League next season

    Lazio looked to sign him when Crotone was relegated to Serie B and nothing came out of it then.. lazio no serious abeg..

    Simy at Lazio would be awesome. Lazio play expansive attacking football and create chances by the truckloads. A point man like Simy would be a value added acquisition for them. At this rate, Simy is making himself impossible to ignore. Rohr must be watching developments with keen interest. With strikers like Osimhen, Dessers, Sadiq, Simy, Iheanacho, a possible Ighalo if he returns, Akpom who was doing well in Greece, a resurgent Larry Kayode, Olayinka, Dennis who can also play in the wings – my goodness, it’s been a while since Nigeria had it so good in the attack department. The selection headache is on the rise for Rohr. I’m sure he’s not complaining though!
