The most recent Serie A fantasy soccer news from RotoWire.
Fantasy AnalysisHiguain is an elite goal scorer who led Serie A with 36 goals last season, 15 more than the next highest player, who happened to be new teammate Paulo Dybala. Juventus made the major purchase with the expectation that Paul Pogba will be sold to Manchester United for more than €120 million, and while that void will be a big one to fill, Higuain's addition up front cannot be understated. The transfer is the third-highest in history and biggest in Serie A. Higuain was already a front-runner to lead the league in goals, and his move to Juventus will only help him in that endeavor.
Fantasy AnalysisHiguain's move will be the third-largest transfer in history and is surely the result of Juventus getting a massive fee from Manchester United for Paul Pogba. Higuain won the golden boot last year and will be a huge addition to a Juventus side that will once again be the dominant favorites to win the league again.
Fantasy AnalysisLjajic turns 25 in September, yet it seems like he has been around forever. He is famously remembered from his days with Fiorentina when he yelled foul language at coach Delio Rossi is his native tongue, not realizing that Rossi understood him. The two then had a physical confrontation. Now he will be playing under fellow Serb Sinisa Mihaljovic, who is a disciplinarian.
Fantasy AnalysisAlves had three goals in 75 appearances through three season with the Turkish side and will bring a lot of experience to the table for the new comers in Serie A. Even at age 34 he could have some fantasy impact if he can earn a prominent role with the club. The center back started once for Portugal during Euro 2016, tallying one clean sheet, one tackle and one yellow card on three fouls. He improves his international record to 86 caps and 10 goals. Portugal won Euro 2016 after a triumphant 1-0 extra-time victory in the final over the hosts France.
Fantasy AnalysisHamsik took a back seat at times at club level for a Napoli side that were loaded with attacking talent, but he still wound up tied for third in Serie A in assists and managed to reach eight goals for the seventh straight season. Hamsik was the key man for Slovakia as they took on some of the largest sides in Europe this summer, and he proved his quality by helping his side escape the group stage. Hamsik has drawn interest from abroad this summer and could very well find himself wearing a new shirt when the new season begins.
