Skybet Championship side Birmingham City are interested in signing Super Eagles striker Simy Nwankwo from Italian Serie A side Salernitana.
Birmingham City are interested in forgotten Super Eagles forward
The Blues want to bolster their attacking options and have identified a Nigerian striker to help them in that regard.
Simy is currently on the books of Salernitana, but he has no future with the club. The 30-year-old joined The Garnets last summer from Crotone after an incredible campaign in the 2020/2021 Serie A season.
Simy's woes at Salernitana
The Super Eagles star signed for Salernitana after scoring league goals for Crotone, the highest a Nigerian ever scored in a single campaign of Europe's top five leagues.
Simy was expected to replicate the same feat with Salernitana, but the Nigerian international struggled, scoring just one goal in his first 19 games for the club.
After a disappointing first half of the season, Simy was sent on loan to Parma in Serie B. However, his woes continued, scoring just one goal for the former UEFA Cup winners.
Simy on his way to Birmingham City?
Simy has returned from his loan spell at Parma, but he is currently surplus to requirements at Salernitana, missing out on the squad that took on Roma last weekend.
However, the Super Eagles star is set to be offered an escape route by Birmingham. According to Bluesfocus, Blues boss John Eustace is considering making a move for the ex-Parma man to add more firepower to his attack.
Simy will come in as a potential replacement for Lukas Jutkiewicz, whose days are numbered at St. Andrews.
However, The Blues will pay a fee in the region of €1.50m to sign the Nigerian, although a loan deal could be another option.
