Sevilla not optimistic on Simeone

Sevilla are not optimistic of signing Fiorentina forward Giovanni Simeone after initial tentative approaches, according to reports.

Estadio Deportivo report the Andalusian club hold an interest in the Argentinian, who is the son of Atletico Madrid Coach Diego.

The 22-year-old joined La Viola in a €15m deal from Genoa last summer but Fiorentina would now quote up to €35m for any deal, which would be out of Sevilla’s budget.

Simeone has netted 14 goals for the Florence-based club in his debut season and has also been linked to big-spending Milan.
