Manolas completes Roma deal
Roma have completed the signing of Kostas Manolas from Olympiacos for €13m. The Greece international has signed a five-year contract with the Serie A outfit and will replace Mehdi Benatia following the Moroccan defender's permanent move to Bayern. The 23-year-old centre-back played four games at the World Cup for Greece this summer. He made 25 league appearances last season and scored three goals while he also featured in seven Champions League games for the Piraeus-based club.
Palermo complete double signing
Palermo have signed centre-back Souleymane Bamba and full-back Emerson Palmieri. Bamba, an Ivory Coast international, has signed a three-year deal having most recently played for Trabzonspor. The 29-year-old started his career at Paris Saint-Germain and has gone on to represent Dunfermline Athletic, Hibernian and Leicester City.
Palmieri has risen through the ranks at Santos and broke into the Brazilian outfit's first team in January 2012. The 20-year-old has penned an initial loan deal with Palermo retaining the right to make the move permanent.
De Guzman signs for Napoli
Napoli have signed Holland midfielder Jonathan De Guzman on a permanent transfer from Spanish side Villarreal for an undisclosed fee. The 26-year-old, who spent the past two seasons on loan at Swansea and scored nine goals in 71 Premier League appearances, has penned a four-year contract. Toronto-born De Guzman started in three of Holland's matches at this summer's World Cup in Brazil.
Fellaini to join Napoli on loan
Marouane Fellaini is set to end his Manchester United misery following reports Napoli have agreed a loan deal for the Belgian international. The 26-year-old was signed by former Red Devils' boss David Moyes last summer after an impressive five-year stay under the Scotsman at Everton. But he struggled to capture the form that led to United paying €35m for his services. Napoli will pay €5m for the temporary deal, according to reports.
Udinese snap up Kone
Udinese have signed Greece international midfielder Panagiotis Kone from relegated Bologna. The 27-year-old was a key figure during his two-year stint at the Stadio Renato Dall'Ara but has opted to prolong his career in Serie A with Udinese after Bologna dropped into the second tier back in May. No financial or contractual details were disclosed.
Diego Lopez completes Milan move
Diego Lopez has left Real Madrid to join AC Milan, it has been confirmed. Lopez arrived in Milan on Monday night and will sign a four-year contract. He will undergo his medical today, before being unveiled as a new Milan player. Following Keylor Navas' signing, Los Blancos had decided to get rid of one goalkeeper, and they chose to let Diego Lopez go and keep Iker Casillas. The 32-year-old arrives to the Rossoneri free of charge, although Madrid could get performance-related bonuses at the end of the season.
Sampdoria snap up goalkeeper Viviano
Former Arsenal goalkeeper Emiliano Viviano has joined Sampdoria. The Italian spent last season on loan at the Emirates Stadium from Palermo and was expected to challenge Wojciech Szczesny and Lukasz Fabianski for a first-team spot. But Viviano failed to make a single first-team appearance for the club and was not kept on for the new campaign.
Marin joins Fiorentina on loan
Marko Marin is spending another season away from Chelsea after agreeing a season's loan to Fiorentina. The 25-year-old winger arrived from Werder Bremen in a €8.8m deal two years ago but has made just six appearances for the Premier League side. Marin spent last season on loan at Sevilla and helped the Spanish club win the Europa League.
The German returned to Stamford Bridge in the summer but he is not part of Jose Mourinho's long-term plans. As a result, he has been allowed to join the Serie A club and, should he impress, he could join Fiorentina in a permanent deal for around €5m next summer.
Medel signs for Inter
Inter Milan have completed the signing of midfielder Gary Medel, 27, from Cardiff City for a fee of around €12.5m. The Chilean, who impressed at this summer's World Cup, joined Cardiff from Seville in August 2013. However, despite quickly becoming a firm favourite among the Cardiff faithful for his combative style, he was unable to prevent them dropping out of the Premier league after just a single season.
Genoa sign Pinilla
Mauricio Pinilla has joined Genoa from Serie A rivals Cagliari on a permanent basis. The 30-year-old Chile striker successfully underwent a medical on Thursday. A statement published on Genoa's official website said Pinilla, who scored 14 league goals for Cagliari following his arrival in July 2012, had joined his new teammates in training ahead of Saturday's friendly meeting with Hoffenheim.
Osvaldo moves to Inter
Pablo Osvaldo has joined Inter Milano on loan from Southampton, with the Nerrazzuri having the option to buy the Italian forward next summer. As part of the deal, 22-year-old Algerian midfielder Saphir Taider moves in the opposite direction on the same terms. Osvaldo returns to Serie A after finishing the second half of last season on loan with Juventus, where he made 11 appearances to help the Bianconeri win the title.
The Argentina-born striker, 28, arrived at Southampton at the start of last season for a club-record fee before being loaned to Juve after 13 appearances. Capped 12 times by Italy, he started his career in Europe with Atalanta in 2006 before spells with Lecce, Fiorentina, Bologna and Roma, scoring 27 goals in 55 Serie A games with the Giallorossi before signing for the Saints.
Marquez signs for Hellas Verona
Mexico captain Rafa Marquez has signed for Serie A side Hellas Verona. Italian media reports Marquez has penned a one-year deal, with a second-year option. Marquez spent a season at Leon, returning to Mexico following 13 years abroad. In Brazil, the 35-year-old defender became the first player to captain his national side in four consecutive World Cups.
