Luca Antonelli    D    AC Milan
The left back is leaving Genoa to return to the club he grew up with, Football Italia reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Antonelli has played very well of late. He is a very good signing for AC Milan. Genoa has several other left backs, but not at his level. Thus, he will be missed.
Juan Cuadrado    M    Fiorentina
Cuadrado is in London to complete a medical ahead of his move to Chelsea, Sky Sports reports. Chelsea are believed to be paying Fiorentina more than £23 million, plus loaning Mohamed Salah to the Serie A side.

Fantasy Analysis

Cuadrado could have a big impact at Stamford Bridge, as he's able to play a number of different positions. His most natural spot appears to be on the right side of the midfield, which could push Willian to the bench.
Kevin Strootman    M    Roma
Roma announced Thursday that Strootman underwent knee surgery in the Netherlands on Wednesday, with Strootman tweeting that he will be out for a couple weeks.

Fantasy Analysis

Strootman has been heavily linked to a move to Manchester United this season, but the knee surgery will all but remove that possibility. It's been an injury-plagued season for the Dutchman, who has no goals and two assists in only six Serie A appearances.
Mattia Destro    F    AC Milan
The center forward has agreed to leave AS Roma to move to AC Milan, Football Italia reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Destro, who will turn 24 in March, plays very much like his coach, Filippo Inzaghi, did. Therefore, it isn't a surprise that Inzaghi was eager to bring him to Milan.
Daniele Rugani    D    Empoli
Juventus has bought out the remaining 50 percent of the young center back's contract to give them full ownership, Football Italia reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Arsenal showed interest and Juventus was quick to make sure they keep the young center back, who has already played with Italy's senior National Team.
Salvatore Bocchetti    D    AC Milan
The center defender has moved to AC Milan after five seasons in Russia, the club has reported on its official web site.

Fantasy Analysis

Milan knew it needed some help on defense after the horrid weekend performance against Lazio and it acted quickly to address that need.
Antonio Cassano    F    Parma
Cassano has left Parma as both the player and club have mutual agreed to part ways, Football Italia reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Cassano, like many other Parma players, are upset over unpaid wages for six months. He is now a free agent and some clubs are certainly interested. At this point in his career, Cassano would help his public image if he returned to his hometown to help Bari make a return to Serie A.
Stephan El Shaarawy    F/M    AC Milan
The winger is expected to miss about six weeks after breaking a bone in his toe, Football Italia reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Injuries continue to plague El Shaarawy, who has had his share of ups and downs.
Danilo D'Ambrosio    D    Inter Milan
The Inter wing back is expected to miss three weeks of action due to a hamstring injury, Football Italia reports.

Fantasy Analysis

D'Ambrosio has done very well this season, even if it has been a tough season for the club.
Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa    D    Roma
The defender has made his 20th appearance with Roma, which means the club will be required to purchase the player who has been on loan from Newcastle, Football Italia reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Yanga-Mbiwa has been pressed into action due to a number of injuries in Roma's defense.
