Sun 31 July 2022 | 14:41

While the Hellas Verona forward was reportedly set to finalize his move to Napoli, Dortmund enters the race as they suffered a blow with their new signing being diagnosed with a malignant tumor.

Joining Dortmund from Ajax on a deal worth €34.5 million as Erling Haaland’s replacement,

Sebastian Haller

has undergone surgery to remove a testicular malignant tumor as he is set to undergo chemotherapy treatment for further treatment. Since Dortmund is not going to have his services for a few months, they are on the lookout to bring in a striker to replace him in the meantime.

Now according to

Marca

, a

Dortmund

delegation will fly to Italy on Thursday in the hope of finalizing a deal for

Gio Simeone

, the son of Atletico Madrid boss, Diego. The former Fiorentina striker was reportedly close to completing a move to Napoli while now the report suggests

Juventus

have also appeared as a pursuer as they struggle to agree a deal with Atlético Madrid for Álvaro Morata.

 

After progressing through the youth ranks, Simeone started his senior career at

River Plate

and earned a €3 million move to Genoa in 2016.  Scoring 17 goals and providing 6 assists last season, the 27-year-old striker holds both Argentine and Spanish nationality but represents Argentina internationally. A competent and efficient finisher with both feet, Simeone is an elegant yet powerful and opportunistic forward who possesses good technical skills as well as flair and finesse on the ball.
