The Italians love a transfer rumour and the latest player they report “half of Europe” are after is Fiorentina’s Giovanni Simeone.

The son of Atletico Madrid manager Diego, the striker moved to Florence from Genoa in the summer and has racked up 13 goals and four assists in all competitions so far this season.

Tuttosport (via TMW) are reporting his performances have caught the eye of our scouts, but we would have a lot of competition to sign the 22-year-old.

Five Serie A teams: Juventus, Napoli, Inter Milan, Roma and Lazio are all reportedly after the Argentinian, as well as La Liga side Sevilla, and French club Lyon.

The former Argentina Under 20 international is said to be rated at €30m (£26.4m), which is a pretty high asking price considering his lack of goals at senior level.

He is beginning to show signs of consistency, having score 14 for Genoa last season, and he could be seen as one for the future by Mauricio Pochettino.

  • I have a rule with buying strikers. They have to score at least 1 in 2 league games and preferably more than 20 a season to be worth consideration

  • As the lad has scored a bag full of goals in Italy, he has to be a pretty decent striker. So If Poch has an interest, we should be front runners. Given that the boy and his dad know poch and all are Argentinian. Perhaps buy him then loan back half a season, see if he continues his form of scoring.
