Five Serie A Stars Who Can Make EPL Switch This Month

Reminiscently to the previous summer transfer market, the January session has thus far been relatively quiet for the majority Serie A sides. But of course none of us would fall under the fall assumption that the Italian clubs do not need to bolster their squads. But the fact remains that the financial issues that plagued them in June persists until the present day. So instead of strengthening their ranks, some of the Calcio clubs could use the current market as a new opportunity to make additional sales. The reasons might be various, but the destination could be one – the English shores. So let’s take a look at five Serie A stars who could be making a move to the Premier League this month while ranking them based on their likelihoods.

5- Ivan Perisic (Inter)

This one might came off as an unlikely proposition, but desperation is a dangerous motif.

Due to Ben Chilwell’s long layoff, Chelsea are searching the market for a new left wingback who can support Marcos Alonso.

After failing to persuade Lyon for the early release of Emerson Palmieri, several English tabloids including the Mirror are reporting the Blues’ interest in Ivan Perisic.

However, it’s hard to see Inter letting go of their first pick on the left flank in the middle of the campaign.

4- Nikola Milenkovic (Fiorentina)  

While all eyes are on Dusan Vlahovic, the bomber will probable linger in Florence until the end of the season.

Nevertheless, Fiorentina have yet another wantaway Serbian in Nikola Milenkovic. The center back has a contract until 2023, but he has gained the attention of some of the Premier League clubs who would surely offer him a better salary than a midtable Serie A team.

It is said that his price tag warded off West Ham United, but the new and vastly rich owners of Newcastle United could be the only one that are willing to splash the 37 million pounds demanded by Fiorentina

3- Arthur Melo (Juventus)

For one reason or another, it’s just not working out for Arthur Melo at Juventus. The Brazilian showcased occasional glimpses of talent, but they mostly proved to be false alarms.

Luckily for the former Barcelona man, he has an admirer in Mikel Arteta, as the Arsenal manager identified him as the right profile to bolster his midfield department.

However, the Bianconeri won’t release their player before finding a suitable replacement first.

This one could drag until the final days of the market, but it’s worth keeping an eye at.

2- Aaron Ramsey (Juventus)

Reminiscently to his Juventus teammate mentioned above, Aaron Ramsey has also been unable to find his best feet in Serie A, but unlike Arthur, the Welshman is already a household name in the Premier League.

Therefore, it’s no surprise to see a host of EPL side queuing for the former Arsenal man.

The former Gunners star has his heart set on a return to the Emirates Stadium, but a fairytale reunion remains unlikely.

For now, it appears that Crystal Palace could be set to make a breakthrough in the negotiations, but it remains to be seen if Ramsey himself would fancy such proposal.

1- Robin Gosens (Atalanta)

Well, this one seems to be at an advanced stage, as Robin Gosens could soon become the latest player to make the jump from Serie A to the Premier League, joining Eddie Howe’s revolution at Newcastle.

Last season, the German was considered to be one of the best wingbacks in Italy if the not the very best, so this move appears to be a continuation for last summer’s movement, which saw some of the very best players in the league (Cristiano Ronaldo, Romelu Lukaku, Cristian Romero…) fleeing towards greener (and much richer) pastures.
