Serie A transfer latest: Rumoured Arsenal target set for shock Sassuolo move

Gaston Ramirez 10

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

Genoa right back Sime Vrsajlko enjoyed an impressive first season in Serie A last term, and his promising displays since his move from Dinamo Zagreb had reportedly attracted interest from a number of clubs around Europe - including Arsenal, who were looking for a replacement for Bacary Sagna until they snapped up Mathieu Debuchy.

Yet now, after he saw a move to AC Milan collapse earlier this month, Vrsajlko is indeed on the move - to Sassuolo. The Serie A side have made an ambitious move to sign the Croatian international, and reports suggest that he will undergo a medical this week ahead of a move to the club.

Elsewhere, it's a week since Juventus were dealt the shocking news that Antonio Conte had left his position as manager of the Turin giants. Now Massimiliano Allegri is in charge, transfer business is expected to be ramped up after the signings of Patrice Evra and Alvaro Morata from Manchester United and Real Madrid respectively.

The club did miss out on Verona's Juan Iturbe though, as the Argentine youngster joined Roma instead, leaving Allegri with a hole to fill behind his frontman. It appears that he could offer an escape route to Southampton playmaker Gaston Ramirez, after the Uruguayan international struggled to replicate the form he showed with Bologna on the South Coast. The Saints have lost plenty of players this summer, but haven't failed to make an impact at St. Mary's Stadium, they could well let the 23-year-old leave the club.

AC Milan and Roma are also still in the market for playmakers, and they have both been linked with a swoop for Shakhtar Donetsk's Douglas Costa. The Brazilian, 23, is currently training in Switzerland to avoid the political unrest in Ukraine, and speculation suggests that he could leave the club through fear of returning to the country. As a result, the two Serie A giants could offer a loan deal to take Costa away until things calm down in Ukraine.
