Serie A Teams Make Cuts in Their Champions League Lists

Milan, Lazio, Napoli, and Inter were forced to exclude some players from their Champions League lists. The Rossoneri didn’t insert two young newcomers, while Inter picked Davvy Klaassen over Stefano Sensi, SportMediaset relays.

Diego Demme is the only absentee for Napoli, as has been the case in Serie A so far. Even though deadline day is in the rearview mirror, he could still find suitors in Turkey and Saudi Arabia.

Milan had the toughest decisions to make due to their large squad. In the end, Mattia Caldara, Yacine Adli, and Luka Jovic made it over Argentine starlets Luka Romero and Marco Pellegrino. The Rossoneri, who don’t have a lot of players grown in Italy, deemed they were deep enough in their respective roles. In their case, the choices were strictly numerical, contrary to Roma.

Lazio opted to exclude Toma Basic and Mohamed Fares. The former is drawing offers from Turkey, while the fullback will move to Brescia, which can still operate in the transfer market due to legal matters tied to their participation in Serie B, Alfredo Pedullà reports.

While Lazio, Inter, and Milan had to keep out somebody from their Champions League lists, Atalanta were able to fit their whole roster into their Europa League one as a pair of homegrown talents have regular roles.
