It’s not just the players that are in trouble this week, either.
The football is on the wane as well, and the headlines in Italy are all about the lack of goals in Serie A. The league has been the main beneficiary of all this transfer activity, with only two clubs making the Champions League and only one playing in Europe’s elite competition.
This week, we take a look at the biggest stories from this week.
Roma will be looking for an impact player with the sale of David Alaba already complete, with an alternative option on the table for Juve’s star striker, Gonzalo Higuain.
With Alaba in Serie B, the club have plenty of options to strengthen their ranks, but a new option could be the arrival of Napoli’s Alen Halilovic.
The Serbian is a proven goalscorer with 14 in 19 league appearances this season, including two goals in his last two games, but his club have made it clear that they want to keep the 22-year-old in Turin.
The deal with Roma is set to be completed by Wednesday, with the player set to join Napoli in January 2019.
Manchester United will be eyeing up a deal for Liverpool’s Raheem Sterling, but the Reds will have to wait for the deal to be complete before making any decisions on the midfielder.
Sterling has been linked with a move to Juventus, with Juventus’ sporting director Giuseppe Marotta also suggesting that the player is one of the top targets on the market, though he has yet to receive a transfer request from the Serie A champions.
Sterling’s price tag is likely to be a lot higher than that, however, and he’s currently available for a world record fee of £40 million.
Inter Milan are preparing to release Mario Balotelli, with their manager, Massimiliano Allegri, set to announce the move to Manchester City as the new signing of the year.
Balotlli, who is a member of the Italian Super League, has struggled to find the net in his two seasons at the San Siro, scoring just one goal in his 13 appearances.
However, he was given a new contract this summer, and could leave the Rossoneri next summer if the player does not perform well.
Atletico Madrid are ready to sign Barcelona defender Gerard Pique, with his former club reportedly offering €20 million for the defender.
The 23-year old is currently out of contract at Barcelona, but will be available for around €60 million if he leaves the Catalan club, which has been said to be open to selling.
Manchester City’s summer spending spree is complete as the Blues are set to sign striker Mario Balasic from Lazio.
The Brazilian was released by the Italian club this summer after just 17 league appearances, and it’s not yet known what his new club will offer.
It’s likely that the striker will be joined by striker Kalidou Koulibaly, but both players are yet to sign new contracts.
Barcelona have announced that the club is close to signing Juventus forward Dani Alves.
The 20-yearold was already a regular for the Italian giants, but they have yet to announce their next signings.
However the striker could be on his way to Spain for a reported fee of €35 million.
The transfer window is closed in the UK, with Everton set to complete the signing of Swansea midfielder Ryan Bertrand, who was recently released by Norwich City.
Bertrand is currently one of Swansea’s most promising young players, and will likely receive a lucrative new deal with the Welsh club.
The 22-month-old is currently on loan at Norwich City, where he made 20 appearances last season, but it’s expected that the England Under-21 international will be joining Everton next summer.
Liverpool will be hoping that the arrival this week of the Argentine forward Fernando Llorente will allow the Reds to keep hold of the striker.
The 25-year of Llorendes has scored eight goals in the Premier League this season and has also scored three in the Champions Leagues.
However it remains to be seen whether the deal can be completed before the transfer window closes on December 30, with Llorencente reportedly interested in a move away from Liverpool.
Arsenal are ready for a return to Europe with the news that midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will be heading to a club in France.
Oxlades-Chambers has spent the past year with the Gunners, but was released earlier this summer when he could not secure a new deal.
It remains to see whether the 22 years old will be sold to another Premier League club, and whether Arsenal will try to lure the midfielder away from the Emirates.
Juventus are preparing a bid for Barcelona midfielder Gonzalo Castro.
The Argentine has been a regular at Barcelona and made 23 appearances for the club last season.
However this is the
