Moise Kean will not move to Atletico Madrid. The deal stalled due to issues during medical examinations with the Madrid club. The Italian suffered a tibia injury that prevented him from participating in Juventus' recent matches. The Atletico medical staff discovered longer recovery times than those estimated by the Italian medical staff, leading to the stop of the negotiation. While awaiting a potential experienced midfield reinforcement (with Bonaventura and Pereyra being the two favorites), Juventus have closed another deal in perspective. Pedro Felipe, a central defender leaving Palmeiras, has arrived in the city. After undergoing medical examinations and signing the contract, he will join the Next Gen. In case of a buyout at the end of the season, Juventus will pay €2 million to the Brazilian club for a player often compared to Gleison Bremer.


Joshua Zirkzee, Bologna's number 9, admired on Saturday at San Siro, is Ac Milan's preferred choice to become the new offensive reference. His contract includes a buyout clause in favor of Bayern Munich for €40 million, a sum the Bavarians do not seem willing to spend. However, things could change if interest from the Premier League emerges at higher figures, between €60 and €70 million. In that case, Bayern Munich might consider buying him back to then sell him again. Moncada and his team have other alternatives; one of the preferred profiles is Benjamin Sesko, a 20-year-old owned by RB Leipzig. The competition in the summer will be fierce, and the valuation high, but AC Milan are determined to pursue a potential center-forward for the next 10 years. Other names on Milan's radar include Santiago Gimenez, who continues to score for Feyenoord, and the long-term target Jonathan David of Lille. Viktor Gyokeres from Sporting CP is also appealing among the younger options.


In the summer, Napoli will bid farewell to Victor Osimhen, as announced by Aurelio De Laurentiis. In addition to the names David from Lille and Zirkzee from Bologna, a new profile has been added: Serhou Guirassy, a striker born in '96 who plays for Stuttgart and is also of interest to AC Milan.


It is now official: Angelino is a new player for AS Roma. Serie A announced it on its official website, with the contract of the winger coming from RB Leipzig being deposited. Tiago Pinto is working on various fronts in the final days of the transfer market. The primary target remains Tommaso Baldanzi, but an alternative could be Federico Bernardeschi. The Toronto playmaker wants to return to Italy and has had contacts with several clubs, including AS Roma. However, a compromise on his high salary may be required for the deal to go through.


Andrea Belotti is on the verge of moving to ACF Fiorentina. The Viola club has reportedly reached an agreement with AS Roma to loan the striker until June 30th. The deal is almost done, pending an agreement between the player and the club. In addition to Belotti, ACF Fiorentina have a big dream: Gio Reyna from Borussia Dortmund. The future of Yerry Mina could be at Cagliari. After intense contacts between Cagliari and Fiorentina, an agreement seems close. After only six months at Fiorentina, where he found little playing time, the Colombian is ready to say goodbye to the Viola and continue his adventure in Italy with Cagliari with the coach Claudio Ranieri. ACF Fiorentina have also officially acquired Luis Balbo, a 17-year-old left-back from Famalicao, on a permanent deal.


M'Baye Niang (29 years old) has chosen Empoli FC. After problems between the player's entourage and the Tuscan management, particularly on contractual details, the deal has been sorted out with the inclusion of bonuses. The negotiation has finally been unlocked. Santiago Castro is a new player for Bologna, and the Argentine striker's contract has been deposited. Bologna have also completed the signing of Leos Tupec, a young 2008-born defender from the Czech Republic, on a permanent deal from FC Pardubice.

In the past few hours, Genoa have secured one of the most interesting deals in this January market, obtaining forward Vitinha from Olympique Marseille. Simultaneously, Genoa has finalized the redemption of Ruslan Malinovskyi from the French club.

In recent hours, Salernitana have finalized the arrival of Jerome Boateng, a defender with a long history at Bayern Munich, who is now a free agent. The German center-back will reinforce Filippo Inzaghi's defensive line. At the same time, Walter Sabatini intends to secure another defensive addition, which could be either José Palomino from Atalanta (also of interest to Udinese and Sassuolo) or Pellegrino from AC Milan.

Nemanja Radonjic has found the new destination he wanted, and that Torino were also seeking: the player moves to Mallorca, currently 15th in the Spanish league, on loan with an option to buy. Torino are also close to signing Derrick Köhn, a left-back from Hannover, and have finalized the deal for Lovato.

Another departure for Hellas Verona in this eventful January window. Riccardo Saponara leaves the club to move to Turkey, joining Ankaragucu. The attacking midfielder has signed a contract until June 2026.

Lecce continues its prospective market, announcing through its official website the arrival of Enes Yilmaz, a German midfielder born in 2005 from Bayer 04 Leverkusen.
