Crotone of Italy striker, Simeon Tochukwu Nwankwo (Simy) could jolly well be on his way towards playing in the English Premier League next season, according to his agent, Vincenzo Morabito, megasportsarena.com reports.
Although the Super Eagles’ returnee has growing interest coming his way in Italy, France and Spain, the agent revealed further that the striker would prefer a move to England, but it would not be for a lower division side.
This comes against the backdrop of a link with Brighton& Hove Albion that has come Simy’s way in recent time, and Morabito has now spoken out to affirm that his ward would prefer playing in the EPL, but also admitted that he could eventually settle for a top club in the Italian Serie A.
Simy still has a year remaining on his contract with Crotone, which of he joined from Portuguese outfit, Portimonense in 2016, but his agent admitted that the former Gil Vicente of Portugal star will be on the move this summer, because he will not play in the second division with his team that was relegated at the end of the outgoing season.
While adding that the most concrete interest has come from top-flight clubs in England, Morabito stressed that the 29-year-old Simy will only consider joining a top club in either country, such that speculation linking him with Monza in the Italian Serie B may not be realistic.
Simy is hogging many summer transfer headlines, after he scored 20 goals and was involved in every single game played by Crotone in the Serie A during the recently concluded season, such that Morabito knows his lad holds all aces against his suitors.
Morabito told Udineseblog: “Simy has a very interesting market in England, there are at least a couple of interested clubs in the Premier League. His preference is for foreign countries, eventually we will consider offers from the upper-middle-range Serie A club.
“We are working mainly on the English market, where the clubs are economically more solid and can offer important figures both to Crotone and to the player.
“He deserves a championship like that. Let’s see what happens in the next few weeks. At the moment, I repeat, the most concrete track is the one that leads to the Premier League.”
