Pescara: Simeone, Gyomber and Macheda

Serie A new boys Pescara confirmed a deal with River Plate for Giovanni Simeone, but are also close to Norbert Gyomber and Federico Macheda.

“There is an agreement for a loan with option to buy for €2.5m and I can confirm the move is ready to be completed,” Pescara President Daniele Sebastiani told reporters.

He was discussing the bid for Giovanni Simeone, the 21-year-old son of Atletico Madrid Coach Diego Simeone.

Simeone plays as a centre-forward for River Plate and just returned from a loan spell at Banfield.

At Under-20 level he scored 10 goals in just 12 caps for Argentina.

Meanwhile, Sebastiani also admitted Pescara are “in talks” with Roma for defender Gyomber, again on loan.

There’s more on the horizon for the Delfini, including an approach for Cardiff City striker Macheda.

The former Manchester United forward turns 25 next month and returned to Cardiff City after a loan spell at Nottingham Forest.
