Crotone close on Junker and Bonazzoli

Crotone are seeking strikers in the final days of the transfer window, including Federico Bonazzoli from Sampdoria and Bodo/Glimt hitman Kasper Junker.

The Squali are bottom of the Serie A table and a large part of that is their struggle to score goals, finding the net just 22 times in 19 games.

According to Sky Sport Italia, their first target is Junker, who would be eager to make the move to Serie A.

However, Norwegian club Bodo/Glimt already lost Jens Petter Hauge to Milan this season and are rejecting the €2m Crotone offer for Junker.

Now Junker has complained to Norwegian paper Verdens Gang that he was “promised I could leave after scoring 20 goals. I scored 27.”

It is believed a deal could be done at €3m, but Crotone want to offer €2m plus bonuses to get closer to it.

In the meantime, Crotone are on the verge of a deal to take Bonazzoli on loan from Sampdoria.

The 23-year-old is currently on loan at Torino with obligation to buy for €8m, but isn’t getting much playing time.

He scored two goals with three assists in 15 competitive games this season.
