Fiorentina edge closer to signing Genoa striker Giovanni Simeone

Fiorentina are looking set to land Giovanni Simeone after Italian Media (La Gazzetta dello Sport) revealed that they are in advanced negotiations with Genoa ahead of a potential move.

The Argentina international has joined Genoa from River Plate for a fee in the region of 5 million euros in August 2016. The 21-year-old has a valid contract with Genoa until June 2021.

Since his arrival from River Plate, Giovanni Simeone has scored 13 goals and provided two assists in 36 games for Genoa in all competitions this season.

The Argentina international has been in impressive form for Genoa this season.

Giovanni Simeone, son of current Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone, has represented Argentina at Under-20 level, winning 12 caps and scoring 10 goals.

Adding a striker remains Fiorentina’s top priority this summer and Stefano Pioli will have drafted a shortlist of a number of possible targets he could approach in the coming days.

Stefano Pioli has always been a manager who keeps his eyes on the most talented young players across the globe.

The Argentina international is thought to perfectly fit the profile of attacking player Stefano Pioli wants to target in the summer transfer window.

Simeone is a player who has impressed many European clubs in the last season, and it is understood that Fiorentina manager would prefer playing him as a forward.

According to the report in Italian Media, Fiorentina have already found an agreement with Genoa regarding the Argentina international worth around 20 million euros plus 5 million euros in bonuses.

Having signed Simeone for 5 million euros in the summer of 2016, to make a 15-20 million euros profit on the 21-year-old who, without question, will be fantastic for Genoa is a good deal all round.
