Simeone set for Verona medical

Giovanni Simeone’s move to Hellas Verona from Cagliari is done with the Argentinean striker set to undergo his medicals with Eusebio Di Francesco’s side.

According to Sky Sport Italia, Simeone will join Verona on a €1m loan deal with an option to buy for €12m.

The Scaligeri had been in talks with Sassuolo for Gianluca Scamacca but failed to reach an agreement, so they quickly managed to finalise the deal with Cagliari.

Simeone, 26, scored six goals in 35 appearances with Cagliari last term. He had been in talks with Olympique de Marseille too, but he will become a new Verona player with his medicals scheduled in the coming hours.
