Jonathan de Guzman    M    Napoli
The Canadian-born Dutch midfielder has moved to Napoli from Spanish side Villareal, Football Italia reports.

Fantasy Analysis

This is another top signing by Napoli.
Giuseppe Rossi    F    Fiorentina
Rossi has reportedly been feeling pain in his right knee, and he has been told to rest for at least seven days, Football Italia reports.

Fantasy Analysis

For most players, a little knee soreness wouldn't be too much of an issue, especially before the season even begins, but with Rossi's history of knee injuries, any pain in the area is treated with extreme caution. He will likely undergo a scan in the coming days to determine the extent of the injury, and he could be in danger of missing the Serie A opener against Roma on Aug. 30.
Arturo Vidal    M    Juventus
Vidal continues to sit out preseason friendlies, but manager Massimiliano Allegri said he expects Vidal to be ready for the Serie A opener Aug. 30 against Chievo.

Fantasy Analysis

Allegri said that Vidal's knee has not completely healed following the World Cup, and that he still needs a little more training before participating in any matches. Vidal has also been heavily linked to Premier League side Manchester United, although Juve have claimed his lack of match play is not because of a potential transfer.
Andrea Pirlo    M    Juventus
Pirlo says he plans to play two more seasons with Juventus and then may move to Major League Soccer, Football Italia reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Pirlo would be a huge addition for Major League Soccer.
Diego Lopez    G    AC Milan
Lopez has signed with AC Milan after completing a transfer from Real Madrid.

Fantasy Analysis

Lopez found himself on the outside looking in at Real Madrid once Keylor Navas was acquired to provide competition for Iker Casillas. As a result, Los Blancos allowed the 32-year-old Spanish goalkeeper to leave for Milan, where he should immediately step in and be the first-choice option ahead of Christian Abbiati.
Panagiotis Kone    M    Udinese
The Greek international midfielder has moved from Bologna to Udinese, Football Italia reports.

Fantasy Analysis

This is a nice signing by Udinese, which is generally known as a seller and not a buyer in the transfer market.
Miroslav Klose    F    Lazio
Klose has retired from international soccer, BBC Sport reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Klose couldn't have asked for a better finish to his time with Germany. He scored two goals at this summer's World Cup in Brazil, helping the Germans to the trophy, and subsequently became the tournament's all-time leading scorer. Klose, who scored 16 goals in a span of four World Cups, tallied 71 goals in 137 international matches throughout his illustrious career. He'll play one more season with Lazio before hanging up his boots for good.
Gary Medel    M    Inter Milan
Medel has signed with Inter Milan after transferring from Cardiff City, BBC Sport reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Medel signed with Cardiff for 11 million last summer and was a ever-present figure for the club during the 2013-14 season. Still, his performances weren't enough to keep the Bluebirds in the top flight, so Medel, who also impressed with Chile during the World Cup, will now make the jump from the Championship to Serie A.
Diego Lopez    G    AC Milan
The veteran goalkeeper has agreed to a move to Italy after talks of him joining AC Milan had been ongoing the past week, Football Italia reports.

Fantasy Analysis

AC Milan still has reliable Christian Abbiati. Recently acquired Michael Agazzi now appears headed for an exit before he has even played a single official match with the club.
Pablo Armero    D    AC Milan
Armero has joined AC Milan from Udinese after spending last season on loan with Napoli and later West Ham, Football Italia reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Armero showed his ability in the World Cup and was a fine player with Udinese. He struggled with Napoli and West Ham.
