All the latest summer transfer news from Serie A...
The World Cup is almost over, but it brings so much transfer speculation after it, that teams will no doubt be dreading interest in their star players. That's certainly the case for Fiorentina, as winger Juan Cuadrado starred for Colombia and has subsequently attracted interest from the likes of Manchester United, Bayern Munich and Barcelona - and Vincenzo Montella, Fiorentina manager, says that the 26-year-old's future depends on two things.
"We will have to see the will and aspirations of Cuadrado and, especially, we have to see which clubs are willing to pay his full value," said the former Roma striker. "Should he leave the club, we will then see what we should do next. However, I still sleep calmly for the time being."
Elsewhere, AC Milan have already brought in Paris Saint-Germain duo Alex and Jeremy Menez, but their rebuilding process will take some time yet as new Pippo Inzaghi will look to turn the Rossoneri's fortunes around. A whole host of players have been linked with moves to the San Siro, and now a new player is believed to be on their shortlist.
Zenit St. Petersburg left back Domenico Criscito left Italy with Genoa for a move to Russia back in 2011, but having seen his chance of breaking back into the Italian national team dwindle, the 27-year-old could move back to Serie A this summer - and Milan are very interested. A move to sign Genoa right back Sime Vrsajlko has collapsed, but signing a natural left back would be better anyway, as it would allow Mattia De Sciglio to stay at right back.
However, one player Milan could miss out on is Torino forward Alessio Cerci. The 26-year-old, who went to the World Cup with Italy this summer, enjoyed a superb season in Turin, racking up 13 goals and 10 assists. Those feats have attracted interest from a whole host of clubs, including Everton and Atletico Madrid, but it seems that Roma are the team that will push hard to sign him from under Milan's nose.
