Nigerian international striker Simeon ‘Simy’ Nwankwo could be on his way to Spain after Real Mallorca made an official bid of ₦1.8 billion (€3.5 million) for his services.

Italian clubs Sampdoria, Genoa, Lazio, and Salernitana, were reportedly interested in snapping up Simy, with English Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur also looking to add the Crotone man to their attacking lineup.

But Real Mallorca has defeated other interested parties by firming up their interest in Simy with a bid that’s worth nearly four million euros, according to Diario de Mallorca.

Crotone only paid €850,000 to sign the Super Eagles forward in 2016 from the Portuguese side Portimonense. But after a great campaign that saw Simy broke in 20 Serie A goals and became Crotone’s all-time highest goalscorer, the former Gil Vicente man now has an estimated market value of €8 million – the peak of his career.
