Giovani Simeone could be set for a €20m transfer this summer.
He is waiting for Hellas Verona to activate the option-to-buy included in the deal to sign him on loan from Cagliari and will then seek to join a club that can offer him European football. Rumours connecting him with a move to Salernitana are unfounded.
Simeone enjoyed a fine 2021/22, contributing 17 goals and six assists in 36 Serie A appearances. Verona finished ninth in the league, nine points behind a European place.
An Argentine international with five caps and a goal to his name, Simeone began his career as a senior professional with River Plate but, aside from a loan spell at Banfield, has spent the majority of his career in Italy.
Simeone joined Genoa in 2016 before leaving for Fiorentina the following season. He ended up spending two years there before switching to Cagliari, initially on loan, in 2019.
Gio Simeone could be on the move this summer on a potential €20m transfer. No chances for Salernitana as for another Italian club interested, he wants Champions League football after great season. 🇦🇷 #transfers
