Serie A Weekly Transfer Market Recap


The transfer market moves along pretty slowly, waiting for the completion of some massive deals and especially for the final week. Some minor but relevant moves still went down in the past few days. Serie A teams are making it a habit of securing transfers for next season and Fiorentina pulled off an intriguing one: the central midfielder Hamed Traorè, who showed great promise and is just 18-year-old. He will finish the year at Empoli and was acquired for €12M.

With the same formula and for around €4M, Cagliari purchased the defensive prospect Sebastian Walukiewicz from Pogon Szczecin, while Sampdoria, for much cheaper, completed the signing of centre-back of Ernesto Mulè from Trapani.

Parma have been paper thin in the midfield for the better part of the season and recently lost Alberto Grassi to an ACL tear, therefore they brought back an old acquaintances to shore up the squad: Juraj Kucka from Trabzonspor, who was recently seen in Italy at Milan and Genoa. The muscular midfielder is very likely to be a regular starter moving forward, with some sneaky fantasy potential.

At Atalanta, Emiliano Rigoni faded despite scoring a hat-trick early against Roma, so the club terminated his loan spell and he has returned to Zenit. On a similar note, Simone Scuffet, who was serviceable in his limited appearances, eventually lost the starting job to Juan Musso and he will now try to revive his once promising career at Kasimpasa. Nicolas Spolli was severely outplayed by the starlet Cristian Romero and rather than sitting on the bench, he opted to move to Serie B, to Crotone more specifically. Despite his experience, Johan Djourou never became a starter for SPAL and the two sides agreed to part ways.

Teams continue to offload fringe players: Lazio loaned a pair of youngsters, Alessandro Rossi and Cristiano Lombardi, to Venezia, the latter on an 18-month stint. Udinese shipped Aly Mallè off to Grasshoppers, while Empoli sold Lorenzo Lollo to Padova.
