Giovanni Simeone: Attracting interest

Everton target Giovanni Simeone may be available in a cut-price deal, according to the latest reports from Italy.

A number of other clubs, such AC Milan and Lazio are interested in Simeone, who has bagged ten league goals this season.

Giovanni is the son of Diego, the current Atletico Madrid Coach who himself has experience in Serie A having had spells as a player at Lazio and Inter.

Initially reported to cost somewhere in the region of €20million, Genoa owner Enrico Preziosi is set to accept offers of €15m instead, according to Italian outlet La Repubblica claim.

This is however partly due to a dip in form; Simeone hasn’t scored since late January and his value is subsequently decreasing.

In seemingly permanent debt, Genoa are being forced to sell their assets, and someone like Simeone would allow them to make a quick profit, seeing as he cost only €5m originally.
