Gonzalo Higuain    F    Juventus
Higuain signed a five-year contract with Juventus on Tuesday after transferring from Napoli for a 90 million transfer fee.

Fantasy Analysis

Higuain 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.
Ciro Immobile    F    Lazio
Immobile will join Lazio after an agreement was made with Sevilla for the transfer for the striker, Football Italia reports.

Fantasy Analysis

This move makes a lot of sense for the player and club. Lazio and Immobile should be excited about this move.
Gonzalo Higuain    F    Juventus
Higuain is expected to join Juventus after the club paid the 94.7 million release clause in his contract with Napoli, the BBC reports

Fantasy Analysis

Higuain'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.
Marko Pjaca    F    Juventus
Pjaca signed a five-year contract with Juventus on Thursday after transferring from Dinamo Zagreb for a fee of 23 million.

Fantasy Analysis

Pjaca, 21, has plenty of upside, though it's unclear how much playing time he will get right away with the Italian giants.
Santiago Juan Gentiletti Selak    D    Genoa
The veteran defender has left Lazio and joined Genoa, Football Italia reports.

Fantasy Analysis

This isn't a huge move, but one that should help Genoa's back line.
Iago Falque    F    Torino
Falque has left AS Roma after one season to move to Torino on loan, Football Italia reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Falque should have never joined Roma. He went to play for a team that was deep in wingers and he got left behind on the depth chart.
Adem Ljajic    M    Torino
The 25-year-old Serbian winger has agreed to move to Torino from AS Roma after spending last season on loan with Inter Milan, Football Italia reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Ljajic 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.
Davide Santon    D    Inter Milan
Santon failed a physical exam, but is still expected to join Napoli from Inter Milan, Football Italia reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Santon is a great talent and could be a key acquisition for Napoli.
Bruno Alves    D    Cagliari
Alves signed a two-year deal with newly promoted Cagliari after transferring from Fenerbahce.

Fantasy Analysis

Alves 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.
Marek Hamsik    M    Napoli
Hamsik scored eight goals and provided 11 assists in all competitions last season. He added another goal and an assist as he helped Slovakia reach the knockout round of Euro 2016.

Fantasy Analysis

Hamsik 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.
