Four Big Serie A Transfers That Could Still Happen

Calcio Mercato

The transfer window may have shut in the UK, but across the rest of Europe, teams are jostling to get their last-minute deals done.

With the transfer window not closing in Italy until 31 August, there is still plenty of time for some big names to move on.

This summer has not been short of a saga or two, and the likes of Mauro Icardi and Paulo Dybala find themselves with precious little time left to force the move they want.

With business still to be done, then, here’s a look at 4 of the biggest deals that could yet happen before the window shuts.

Mauro Icardi

Interested teams: Juventus

Mauro Icardi and his wife/slash agent Wanda Nara have tried every trick in the book to force his move away this season following contract disputes.

There has been the open flirtation with any club linked, as well as the threat to run down his current deal and leave for nothing, albeit in two years time.

With his successor up top Romelu Lukaku through the door, Inter are in a position to negotiate a deal to let him go, and Juventus appear the frontrunners.

Paulo Dybala

Interested teams: Paris Saint-Germain

After turning down Manchester United and a last-ditch move to Tottenham collapsing, Paulo Dybala is running out of viable options.

However, Paris Saint-Germain could be in a position to offer him an out. Juventus had pulled out of a deal with Spurs over fears they would not be able to land a replacement but, courtesy of Romelu Lukaku arriving at Inter, pieces may fall into place now allowing the Argentine to leave.

In any case, Maurizio Sarri has admitted he needs to trim his squad, and with the Ligue 1 champions reportedly ready to offer a salary of €11m-a-year, a move could be in the best interest of all concerned.

Ivan Rakitic

Interested teams: Inter

After the high-profile signings of Frenkie de Jong and Antoine Griezmann this summer, this a little bit of shedding to be done to the Barcelona squad.

Malcom has already exited, but there is certainly room for more to leave and Ivan Rakitic has long been a name linked with a move away.

Consistently mentioned in the same breath as Manchester United this summer, that move is not going to happen now. Inter, however, could still give Barcelona a decision to make should they come in with an offer.

Hirving Lozano

Interested teams: Napoli

Linked with several big clubs last summer after a strong showing at the World Cup in Russia with Mexico, Hirving Lozano is in line for his big money move 12 months later.

Unwilling to play ball with Real Madrid over their asking price for James Rodriguez, the Serie A side have had one eye on the winger all summer, with Carlo Ancelotti admitting their interest back in May.

It looks as though a deal may now finally be close, with €45 million fee reportedly agreed.
