Lazio Linked with Giovanni Simeone as Immobile’s Replacement


Lazio are preparing to pursue Napoli striker Giovanni Simeone as a potential successor to Ciro Immobile, who is nearing a move to Besiktas. New Lazio coach Marco Barone has identified the 29-year-old Argentine as the ideal candidate to lead the team’s attack.

Radio Kiss Kiss report how Simeone, who played a role in Napoli’s historic third Scudetto triumph in 2023, is reportedly keen on reuniting with Barone, his former mentor at Hellas Verona. This connection could prove crucial in facilitating the transfer.

Despite having a contract with Napoli until 2026, with an option for an additional year, Simeone’s recent season was disappointing. He saw limited playing time, managing only 650 minutes in Serie A action.

However, Simeone’s experience in Italy’s top flight remains valuable. With 268 Serie A appearances and 72 goals to his name, he brings a wealth of knowledge and proven goal-scoring ability to the table.
