Newly promoted La Liga side Real Mallorca have made an offer of €3.5 million to FC Crotone for their Nigerian forward, Simy Nwankwo.
Simy, who still has a year left on his contract is highly sort after by the Spanish side and is one of three options for Mallorca sports director Pablo Ortells wants.
The 29 year-old also fits the profile of the kind Spearhead the team needs and Coach Luis Garcia Plaza will welcome the Nigerian into his fold for a new campaign.
According to Monro Bryce of a local publication, Majorca Daily Bulletin, “The search for a No. 9 is almost over”.
Bryce who has covered the team’s pre-season games expects Simy to fit the club’s ethos.
“He has just scored 20 goals at Italian club Crotone, a record for a relegated side. He played alongside Ante Budimir and is what’s described as a “benchmark striker” which is just the profile sports director Pablo Ortells wants, and especially the coach.”
