Serie A latest: Verona swoop for Manchester United youngster

Abel Hernandez

All the latest summer transfer news from Serie A...

Juventus and Inter Milan are two of the biggest sides in Italy, and as a result, the two clubs regularly enter fights over the top talents in the country. They look set to do battle once again this summer, as speculation suggests that Palermo forward Abel Hernandez is the object of their desires.

The Uruguayan striker hit 14 goals in 28 Serie B games to fire Palermo to promotion back to Serie A, and he subsequently earned a call-up to the Uruguay squad for this summer's World Cup. Interest is growing in both Italy and even England, so a huge transfer scramble could commence in the coming weeks.

One of the most active teams in the transfer market every summer is Udinese, and they have been at it again today having finally secured the signing of Chievo's French striker Cyril Thereau after a protracted transfer saga for the 31-year-old former Anderlecht hitman.

Thereau, who has also had spells with Charleroi and Steaua Bucharest, hit seven goals last season, and will look to make an impact with Andrea Stramaccioni's side - though there will always be the potential of moves to sister clubs Watford and Udinese.

Meanwhile, Hellas Verona have secured the signing of Manchester United's young Italian goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini. Having failed to make an impact at Old Trafford since his 2011 move from Fiorentina, Gollini has return to Italy in order to find first-team football.

The 19-year-old has reportedly signed a five-year-deal with the club, and will be vying for the #1 jersey next season.
