Simeon Nwankwo has signed a three-year contract extension with Italian Serie B side Crotone.

Newly-promoted Serie A side, Crotone has rejected an offer from Udinese for Nigeria striker Simy Nwankwo.

According to, Udinese are keen on signing the 28-year-old but Crotone are not ready to sell the highly-rated striker.

It is believed that the Calabrian club wants to retain the services of the Nigerian international so he can help them in the Italian Seria A next season.

Simy has been impressive for Crotone this term having netted 21 goals in all competitions – with 20 coming from the Seria B.

The forward is having his most prolific season as a professional after surpassing his 20 goal record he has when he was playing in Gil Vincente of Portugal.

Lazio have also been reported to have interest in the player whose contract with the Rossoblù will run until June 2022.

Simy has five caps for Nigeria and was part of the Super Eagles team that were eliminated in the group stage of 2018 world cup in Russia.
