Simone Andrea Ganz (born 21 September 1993) is an Italian professional footballer who plays as a striker for Hellas Verona on loan from Juventus. He is the son of former footballer Maurizio Ganz.

Club career[edit]


Ganz started playing football as a child at the Masseroni Marchese football academy in Milan, before joining A.C. Milan's youth system at the start of the 2008–09 season.[1] He made his professional debut with the first team on 1 November 2011, coming on as a substitute for Robinho in a UEFA Champions League group stage match against BATE Borisov, which ended in a 1–1 draw.[2][3]

For the 2013–14 season, he was loaned out to Prima Divisione club Lumezzane.[4] However, the deal was cut short during the January transfer window and he subsequently joined Barletta on another loan for the remainder of the season.[5]


At the start of the 2014–15 season, Ganz joined Lega Pro club Como.[6][7]


After scoring 16 goals in Serie B for Como, Juventus signed Ganz on a four-year deal.[8] He was immediately sent out on a season-long loan to Hellas Verona.[9]

International career[edit]

Ganz won 5 caps and scored one goal with Italy under-19 in 2011.[10]
