Gio Simeone, the son of Atlético Madrid coach Diego, has been gaining plaudits for his performances for Genoa in Serie A this season, where he has banged in eight goals in 19 league games.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport there are several clubs interested in signing the 21-year-old, with Sevilla and Villarreal said to be heading up the queue for a summer bid.
Inter also considering bid
La Gazzetta also state that Inter Milan have targeted the prolific Argentina under-20 international (10 goals in 12 games) and have sent scouts to watch Simeone on several occasions.
Almost inevitable, the daily also mentions Atlético Madrid as a potential destination, but if the rumours of Inter’s interest are genuine it could prove to be an interesting move given that Simeone Sr. has signalled his intention to one day return to coach the Nerazzurri.
