Genoa's Giovanni Simeone 'valued at £17m'

Genoa reportedly place an £17m asking price on the head of attacker Giovanni Simeone amid interest from Fiorentina and Torino.

Genoa have reportedly placed a £17m asking price on the head of attacker Giovanni Simeone.

Simeone, who has made three appearances for the Argentina Under-23 side, came through the youth system at River Plate before representing the Argentine outfit's first team for three seasons.

The 21-year-old, son of Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone, earned a move to Genoa last summer, and scored 13 goals in 36 appearances for the Italian giants during the 2016-17 campaign.

Torino and Fiorentina have both been linked with the Argentine this summer, and according to Tuttosport, Genoa are prepared to sanction a move should an offer of £17m arrive.

Genoa narrowly avoided relegation from Serie A last season, finishing the campaign down in 16th position in the table, and it is thought that Simeone wants to move on.
