Former Nigerian international Henry Nwosu has stated that Simy Nwankwo should not be short of suitors when his club Crotone are relegated from Serie A at the end of the season.
Crotone’s drop back to the second tier of Italian football was confirmed this past weekend when they were beaten 2-0 by Internazionale.
Nwankwo, though, has been a hero in the club’s campaign, scoring 19 goals in Serie A to establish himself as one of the deadliest strikers in the division.
He will surely be snapped up in the transfer market once the 2020-21 season is completed later this month, with the likes of Genoa and Sampdoria already said to be interested in a move.
Nwosu has told Soccernet.ng that the Crotone player deserves a platform to fully showcase his attacking skills.
“Simy Nwankwo has shown to be a quality striker in the Serie A where his goal-scoring prowess has been fantastic,” said Nwosu. “He’s deadly in front of goal any time he finds himself in the 18-yard box.
“It is so sad that his club, Crotone, has been relegated after losing to Inter Milan, but that is not the end of the world for him. Every club will definitely want to sign a player like Simy because he knows how to deliver the goals.
“I will advise him to move to a better club in Spain, England and Italy where his impact can be felt in the Super Eagles.”
Nwankwo will hope to move past the 20-goal mark in Crotone’s final Serie A matches against Roma, Hellas Verona, Benevento and Fiorentina in the next three weeks.
