Wojciech Szczesny    G    Roma
Szczesny joined AS Roma on a season-long loan from Arsenal.

Fantasy Analysis

Szczesny became the third choice keeper at Arsenal after they signed Petr Cech this summer, and he will now compete with Morgan De Sanctis for the starting job at Roma, though he is widely believed to be the front-runner for the role.
Wojciech Szczesny    G    Roma
Szczesny is expected to spend the 2015/16 season on loan at AS Roma, ESPN FC reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Szczesny lost his starting spot at Arsenal last January when David Ospina took over, and the summer arrival of Petr Cech only pushed him further down the depth chart. He will have to battle Morgan De Sanctis for the starting job, though the Polish international is expected to win the competition.
Federico Bernardeschi    F    Fiorentina
The 21-year-old striker has signed a four-year extension to remain with Fiorentina, Football Italia reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Bernardeschi is a fine young talent who missed much of last season due to injury.
Gonzalo Higuain    F    Napoli
Napoli club president Aurelio De Laurentiis said that Higuain will not be leaving the club this summer, reports the Daily Mail.

Fantasy Analysis

Higuain has been linked to transfer rumors with Chelsea, Arsenal, and Manchester United this summer, but it appears as though he will remain in Italy next season.
Luigi Sepe    G    Fiorentina
The 24-year-old goalkeeper who was Empoli's starter last season on loan from Napoli has now moved on loan to Fiorentina, Football Italia reports.

Fantasy Analysis

This is the perfect place for Sepe. He will have a chance to win the starting spot and perhaps remain with Fiorentina beyond the upcoming season.
Jonathan Biabiany    F/M    Inter Milan
The French winger who hasn't played in nearly a year due to a heart condition has returned to Inter as a free agent by signing a four-year deal, Football Italia reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Biabiany is talented and certainly everyone wishes him well as doctors have allowed him to return to play. But this is another bizarre move as Inter is giving a player who didn't play at all last season a four-year contract.
Giampaolo Pazzini    F    Verona
The free agent striker who last played with AC Milan has moved to Hellas Verona on a five-year deal, Football Italia reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Giving a free agent player over age 30 a five-year contract is quite interesting especially since there is no guarantee he will start. He joins a club with Luca Toni. They played together back when both were with Fiorentina. But Pazzini backed up Toni then and it appears he will do the same again. The two have similar characteristics and may not be suited to play together.
Matias Agustin Silvestre    D    Sampdoria
The much-traveled center back has signed a two-year deal with Sampdoria, Football Italia reports.

Fantasy Analysis

This appears to be a good place for Silvestre.
Daniele Verde    F    Roma
The talented teenage striker has gone on loan to Frosinone from AS Roma, Football Italia reports.

Fantasy Analysis

What is good about this is that Verde will remain in Serie A and not have to drop to a lower level. There are very few players that have played their entire career in the top flight. Verde has that potential.
Davide Astori    D    Napoli
The veteran center back has moved from Cagliari to Napoli after AS Roma did not pick up the option to buy the player after he spent last season with them on loan, Football Italia reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Napoli should have made this move a year ago and perhaps they'd be preparing for the UEFA Champions League this season. Astori is a former AC Milan youth product like new Manchester United signing Matteo Darmian. He too, has spent time playing for Italy as others have gone down injured.
