Super Eagles Striker, Simy Nwankwo Joins Serie A Club On Loan
Simy Nwankwo has joined Serie A’s U.S. Salernitana 1919 on a season-long loan from FC Crotone.
The transfer was announced in a statement on the club’s official website on Thursday.
The newly-promoted team struck a deal that permits them to buy the Nigerian for €6 million from the relegated Crotone.
The 29-year-old lanky forward has also been assigned the club’s jersey number 25 ahead of Salernitana’s first Serie A appearance after over 20 years of absence.
“The U.S. Salernitana 1919 announces that it has reached an agreement with the F.C. Crotone for the temporary transfer with the obligation of redemption of the striker class Simeon Tochukwu Nwankwo. The player will wear the number 25 shirt,” the statement read.
Nwankwo, who had only represented Nigeria on four occasions, scored 20 goals for Crotone last season.
Although his outputs couldn’t save the club from relegation, he was listed among Serie A top marksmen.
