Quiet January Window Ends with a Whimper in Serie A

Deadline day wasn’t particularly high-octane in Serie A and the biggest deal was Roma signing Tommaso Baldanzi. Fiorentina didn’t manage to bend Fiorentina for Albert Gudmundsson despite a couple of raises.

Lazio almost signed a new player, Ryan Kent from Fenerbahce, but the acquisition fell through due to arrears with Fenerbahce, Alfredo Pedullà relayes. He was already in Italy to sign him new team.

Torino onboarded three proven Serie A contributors: David Okereke, who had stayed at Cremonese following the relegation, Matteo Lovato from Salernitana, and Adam Masina from Udinese. They also onboarded Serbian talent Uros Kabic from Red Star Belgrade. David Zima left them to move to Slavia Prague. Brandon Soppy, who was on loan to them from Atalanta, will finish the season at Schalke 04. Marash Kumbulla transferred to Sassuolo on loan. Bologna brought Jens Odgaard back to Serie A from AZ Alkmaar.

A few minnows rounded out their squad. Verona added more attackers to compensate for their exodus: Karols Swiderski from Charlotte and Stefan Mitrovic from Red Star Belgrade. The former has 22 goals and 9 assists in 61 MLS appearances. Jordi Mboula headed to Racing Santander, while Riccardo Saponara joined Ankaragucu yesterday.

Salernitana brought in Iron Gomis from Kasimpasa and Emanuel Vignato from Pisa on top of Marco Pellegrino from Milan. They also nabbed Shon Weissman from Granada right at the buzzer. Cagliari got Yerry Mina from Fiorentina and Gianluca Gaetano from Napoli.
