Salernitana Looking to Finish the Transfer Market Window with a Bang

Salernitana are slowly but surely filling out the roster without spending money. Given their unique ownership situation, they are self-financing and have almost no cash at their disposal. However, they would still like to make a couple of strong additions to have a puncher’s chance in the relegation struggle.

They are pursuing Crotone’s Simy and placed a bid, but Crotone want €5M. Moreover, the striker has some doubts about the destination. Salernitana face competition as Maiorca are going strong after the Nigerian forward, Tuttomercatoweb reports. They offered him a four-year contract with €1M salary.

If Salernitana could not get Simy, the alternative would be Chelsea’s Ike Ugbo. He played at Cercles Bruges last season. They are in talks with the Blues to get him on loan, Alfredo Pedullà reports. The Amaranto are also interested in Abdelhamid Sabiri, one of the best Serie B players last season. He has a €4M release clause and would like to depart. He has received a rich proposal from Saudi Arabia team Al-Taawon, the site informs.

Their biggest signing thus far has been Federico Bonazzoli. Gianluca Caprari and Julian Chabot might soon join from Sampdoria too, Tuttomercatoweb indicates. They have added Matteo Ruggeri and Nadir Zortea from Atalanta on loan as well, and Mamadou Coulibaly and Pawel Jaroszynski returned from Udinese and Genoa after playing here in the last six months. Salernitana have also finalized a plethora of free transfers: Joel Obi from Chievo, Stefan Strandberg from Ural, Wajdi Kechrida from Sahel, Lassana Coulibaly from Angers, and Michele Cavion from Ascoli.
