Atalanta reportedly considers Simeone as a backup for Scamacca, proposes £15 million for Napoli striker

Atalanta are keenly targeting Giovanni Simeone of Napoli to serve as the deputy for Gianluca Scamacca.

The club has been diligently exploring options both within Europe and domestically to strengthen their forward line.

Simeone, who has been on Atalanta’s radar for the past two years, appears to be a prime candidate for the role.

“We see Simeone as a valuable addition to our squad,” said a source close to the club.

The insider further elaborated, “His performance at Napoli has been nothing short of impressive, and we believe he would bring a lot to the table.”

Atalanta’s pursuit of a vice-Scamacca signals their intent to bolster their attacking options as they aim for a strong season ahead.

The player is known for his clinical finishing and work ethic, attributes that have evidently caught the attention of the Bergamo-based side.

As negotiations progress, it remains to be seen whether Atalanta can finalise a deal for the prolific forward.
