DONE DEAL: Hellas Verona sign Cagliari striker Simeone; but sale planned

Hellas Verona have signed Cagliari striker Giovanni Simeone.

Simeone spent this past season on loan at Verona, where he scored 17 goals in 36 Serie A appearances.

Verona have now signed the 27 year-old outright for a fee of €12m, with a deal to 2026.

However, Verona are expected to sell the Argentine this summer.

Napoli and Atalanta are keen, while Arsenal have also been linked with Simeone this week.
