Argentinian striker Giovanni Simeone is set to ignite interest among Premier League clubs as he plans to request a departure from Napoli in the upcoming January transfer window.

With a meeting with Napoli’s management imminent, Simeone’s decision could attract bids from across Europe, especially from the English Premier League, where his talent has been closely monitored since his time at Verona, according to Sky Sports News.

Despite his impactful performances, including a notable goal against Real Madrid in the Champions League, Simeone has found starting opportunities limited this season.

His consistent scoring rate in the Champions League and contributions to Napoli’s Scudetto triumph last season highlight his potential value to interested clubs.

The son of Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone, Giovanni’s frustration over limited game time has prompted him to consider a move, despite having over two years left on his contract. His situation has previously caught the attention of clubs like West Ham, Newcastle, and several European teams, making this transfer window a critical juncture in his career.
