Simy Nwankwo In Talks With Serie B Club Monza

Serie B side Monza are in talks with Crotone striker Nwankwo Simy after he scored 20 Serie A goals this season.

The 29-year-old Nigeria international was expected to remain in the top flight following his impressive campaign, despite being unable to prevent Crotone’s relegation.

Instead, Calciomercato.com claim Monza are in negotiations with Simy and close to securing a deal.

He had been linked with numerous other clubs, including Fiorentina, Torino, Lazio, Sampdoria and newly-promoted Salernitana.

His contract with Crotone runs to June 2022 and he has been at the club since 2016.

Monza are owned by former Milan President Silvio Berlusconi and just appointed former Crotone coach Giovanni Stroppa.

Simy has been linked with other clubs outside Italy with Crotone’s sporting director, Beppe Ursino revealing that the club’s all-time top scorer is in great demand and attracting interest from the German Bundesliga.

“He has requests from Serie A, but above all from the Bundesliga”, Ursino was quoted as saying by Italian sports newspaper Corriere dello Sport.

    I pray this becomes a joke!!! How can someone who scores a Whooping 20 Serie A goals be unable to secure a decent deal with a decent club in the Top 5 leagues in Europe?? This beats my imaginations.

    He is 29yrs… Which European clubs from dealing with Africans may interpret as nothing less than 35yrs in reality. So he has very low resale value… normally a team at the highend of performance like both Milan teams, Juve, and those in Europa League competitions may not want to take a gamble on a player already on the verge of 30yrs, if they do, it will be for expected performance related motives only… the player cannot sign himself, he knows to stand a chance with Nigeria he needs to be in a top team in the top division and doing well. Last time I checked, Monza is owned by the Berlusconi family also and were vying strongly for Serie A promotion… Balotelli and Prince Boateng are there. Clubs bidding or showing interest merely on paper does not translate to signing or genuine interest until firmed-up by an official offer… The player has to do what he has to do for himself, family and then other considerations… I am ok of he ends up in a decent team that can beat the drop atleast for the upcoming in Serie A, if he gets playing time often so we can continue to see him and know if we could keep clamoring for him in Super Eagles… As it is… other than Osimhen, I do not see the likes of Iheanacho, Onuachu and Iwobi being dependable for Nigeria in terms of positive winning/goals contribution even though they have been decent at their clubs… Why that is, is still another mystery as our coaches have not managed to press home the goods and efficiency of our strikers from club performance to National team performance… We have seen Iheanacho vs Cameroon now, back-to-back, the likes of Moses Simon still blasting wide from 8yards with open goal and largely attackers and midfielders who cannot shoot properly and accurately… We will be looking forward to Mexico. I hope no one is saying that game, and its timing is wrong anymore… World Cup 2022 is just a year away and our team is still struggling to convince against formidable opponents since last world cup… We hope for better days!
