Biography of Simeon Nwankwo & Net Worth
Simeon Tochukwu Nwankwo (born 7 May 1992), known simply as Simy, is a Nigerian professional footballer who plays as a forward for Serie A club Salernitana, on loan from Serie B club Crotone.
In July 2016, Simy signed for Crotone, newly promoted to Serie A.
He scored seven goals during the 2017–18 campaign, tied with Ante Budimir for second-most for the club and only one behind top scorer Marcello Trotta. This included a memorable overhead kick in a 1–1 draw against champions Juventus on 19 April 2018. Crotone, however, would be relegated at the season’s end.
Although the club struggled to a twelfth place finish in their return to Serie B, Simy was able to find his form and have his best season since moving to Italy, finishing first on his team and sixth overall in goals with fourteen. He bested this in the 2019–20 campaign, topping Serie B with twenty goals and helping his team earn promotion back to Italy’s top flight. Simy was prolific again during the 2020–21 season, scoring 20 league goals, but this was not enough to prevent Crotone from being relegated after a single season in the top flight. On 19 August 2021, Simy moved to newly-promoted Serie A club Salernitana on a season-long loan.
Simeon Nwankwo’s net worth is estimated to be £2,095,600, according to the list of richest Nigerian Footballers.
