Fenerbahçe are tracking Giovanni Simeone. According to Turkish media outlet Fotomaç, the club is keeping close tabs on the striker - son of Atlético coach, Diego Simeone and hope to bring him to Europe this summer. Fenerbahçe have sent emissaries out to South America to compile a report on the player and his performances with Argentina's Under-20s side and Banfield, where he is on loan from River Plate. 

Fenerbahçe coach Vitor Pereira has already given the go-head to proceed with a bid for Gio and Fotomaç claim that Fenerbahçe officials plan to talk directly with El Cholo to persuade him to give his approval for his son to accept a move to the Süper Lig outfit.
