Giaccherini signed a three-year contract with Napoli on Saturday after transferring from Sunderland.

Giaccherini never found consistent playing time at Sunderland, but he had a very solid European Championship with Italy and will parlay that into a move to the Serie A side that finished second last season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Giaccherini made four starts for Italy during Euro 2016, tallying one goal on five shots (two on target), one assist, 10 crosses and one yellow card on six fouls. He takes his international record to four goals in 29 caps. Italy were eliminated dramatically after a quarterfinals penalty shoot-out loss to Germany.

Giaccherini wasn't able to earn regular playing time with Sunderland and played last season on loan with Bologna where he had a major role. The 31-year-old versatile midfielder showed solid prolific skills holding a decent fantasy upside and finished the season with seven goals and 1.6 shots per game in 28 Serie A appearances (27 starts).

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Giaccherini put in four crosses and scored the opening goal on one of his four shots in Monday's 2-0 win over Belgium.

Giaccherini was deployed as part of a midfield three, and he wriggled free of the Belgian defense to expertly control a long pass and tuck it past Thibaut Courtois to open the scoring in the 32nd minute. Despite the strong start, Italy are not expected to be one of the higher-scoring sides in the tournament, so Giaccherini's play in the middle of the field will be crucial to generating offense as the tournament rolls on. If Monday's performance is any indication, he should once again play a pivotal role in Friday's match versus Sweden.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Giaccherini scored a goal in Bologna's 2-0 win over Genoa Sunday.

Giaccherini is a striker for Bologna, but is expected to play a different role for Italy in Euro 2016 should he make the team.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Giaccherini is expected to miss three weeks of action due to a thigh injury, Football Italia reports.

This is not good news for Bologna, which has struggled at the start of the season and can't afford to be without any key players.

August 31, 2015

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Giaccherini joined Serie A side Bologna on Monday on a season-long loan.

Giaccherini was finding playing time very tough to come by this season, so he'll head to Italy to get more first-team touches, though it's unclear what will happen after the season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Giaccherini is expected to be available Saturday against Leicester City after recovering from an ankle injury, the Newcastle Chronicle reports.

Giaccherini has missed three months due to the ailment, and given the long layoff, it's unlikely he gets a start, particularly with how well Jermain Defoe and Connor Wickham are playing up front.

Giaccherini picked up a knock to his ankle during Sunderland's scoreless draw with Burnley on Saturday, though manager Gus Poyet relayed that it may not be serious. "I think it is less than what we thought, it looked bad because he cleared the ball and had a tackle on his ankle, but he was telling me in the dressing room that he doesn't think it is bad," Poyet said.

Will Buckley came on for Giaccherini in the 73rd minute after he suffered the injury. Even if the injury is not serious, Giaccherini will not likely play in Tuesday's Capital One Cup match against Stoke City, but may be available next Saturday against Swansea if his ankle responds to treatment.
