Italian Serie A club Lazio have started preparing for the reopening of the transfer window and are working on a deal to sign Super Eagles striker Simeon Tochukwu Nwankwo.
According to Sportmediaset, Lazio want to add the Crotone star to their offensive ranks and are prepared to offer him a three-year contract in the summer.
The 26-year-old stands to earn at least 3 million euros (N1.2 billion) in wages over the duration of the contract if the deal goes through.
The Biancocelesti don’t need to strike any deal with Crotone as the player comes off contract at the end of the 2018-2019 season, meaning only personal terms have to be agreed.
This season, Simy has scored 11 goals (3 assists) in 26 matches in the Italian Serie B while his total goals since his arrival in Italy three years ago is 22 in 75 appearances.
He played for Portuguese clubs Gil Vicente FC and Portimonense SC before joining Crotone.
