Lots of transfer action in Serie A

It seems that the big Italian clubs have been busy securing (or at least trying to) transfers before the deadline.

Roma seem to have sealed the Cicinho deal which works out well for the player since Real Madrid’s new coach has him playing on the left but mostly had the Brazilian out of his plans anyway. Since Cicinho has an Italian passport, he won’t take up a foreigners spot which is advantageous for Roma.

As for Juve, they’re madly chasing after Gilberto Silva, but will Arsenal sell another of their experienced, core players? It seems that they’re at least considering it by asking for about 50% more than Juve have offered so far…

Inter have Deco in their sights but so do Newcastle. Inter has more money to throw at Barca but an auction isn’t going to help get Deco for a reasonable price. He’s definitely a player that can make the difference with creative play and hard work, Inter can surely do with him.

AC Milan are trying to nab Emerson from Real Madrid. They seem to like their older players. Failing that, they may go after Motta who seems to have had his fill at Barca. He has just under a year on his contract so Barca would be keen to prevent a free transfer at the end.

Sure are a lot of Brazilians moving about…
