Series B club Benevento is in talks to sign Nigerian striker Simy Nwankwo, PUNCH Sports Extra reports.
The 30-year-old striker, who was loaned to Parma in the Serie B for the second half of the season, is considered redundant at Salernitana.
He is yet to appear for the club this season, despite scoring just once in 20 appearances.
According to TMWTalks between the two parties are at an advanced stage and an announcement is expected to be made shortly.
“Simy is moving closer to Serie B and Benevento has agreed to personal terms with the player,” the report said.
Meanwhile, Salernitana is looking to sign Chelsea forward Michy Batshuayi in a last-minute bid to bolster their attack once Simy’s departure is confirmed.
The Campania squad have been looking for a new striker to join Davide Nicola’s roster for a few weeks and have turned their attention to 28-year-old Batshuayi, who returned to West London last month after a year on loan at Besiktas. . , where he scored 14 goals in 33 matches.
The Belgian striker’s current contract expires in 2023, but there is an option for the club to extend it for another year so they can sign a lease. The 28-year-old is now considering the move, open to another adventure abroad.
