January market on the 6 teams in the relegation zone
Stroppa’s Monza is looking for a striker. The name being talked about is that of Brekalo, formerly of Turin and this season at Wolsfsbur, who has not found space in the German club and would like to return to Italy. Monza could be the right place to relaunch him. With a view to exits, the rumor concerning goalkeeper Cragno, who is of interest to various clubs in the top flight, and midfielder Ranocchia, who, having found no space, could return to Juventus and then be transferred to another team, is increasingly insistent. alla Cremonese.
Lecce always attentive to what happens to the players in perspective, is moving to find a young man for the midfield. The name on which the head of the Corvino technical area is working is that of Bove della Roma. But pay attention to some other names, which the expert director from Salento could find abroad, perhaps in northern Europe.
Spezia has already moved by taking Joao Moutinho from Orlando City for the right wing. Furthermore, the new sporting director Macia is looking for a central midfielder. The identified profile is that of Cardoso of the Internacional of Porto Alegre. The footballer of American nationality, is also required by Spanish teams, could already arrive at black and white in these weeks, if the club from La Spezia pays the release clause, which would amount to 5 million euros.
Cremonese should intervene on various departments, including defence, midfield and attack. In defense they are looking for a profile that can give more security to the department and who has knowledge of the Italian championship. The name could be that of Alex Ferrari, who is given on leaving Sampdoria, where he has not found space until today.
As for the midfielder, it could be Ranocchia from Juventus, today at Monza, who is leaving the Brianza club. The profile of Ranocchia is very popular with coach Alvini, who needs a director who can dictate the timing of the game, which is fundamental for the development of the actions according to the ideas of the Tuscan coach. As far as the forward is concerned, the names discussed are different, but it will certainly have to be a profile with different characteristics from those of the forwards taken on last summer.
Verona with the new director Sogliano should intervene on various departments. In defense the names that come up are those of Ferrari and Colley of Sampdoria, the first also followed by Cremonese. Caputo could also arrive in attack from Sampdoria, who is also of interest to Empoli. On the other hand, there could be the departures of Lasagna and Henry among the forwards, while among the defenders Diog who is liked by Bologna.
The team coached by Stankovic, given the very difficult position in the standings, will certainly try to make corrections, which however depend on the club’s financial situation, which is rather worrying. There are many names that are mentioned for the different roles, but these arrivals will depend not only on the financial resources, but also on what will be some players in the outgoing squad. The outgoing names that are talked about so much are those of Ferrari and Colley in defense and Caputo in attack. As written above, these names are part of the plans of some clubs, see Verona, and then there could be an exchange of players between these two clubs.
The considerations to be made on the teams fighting not to relegate are that the interventions to be made in the next January transfer market cannot be wrong, this is because the possibilities for appeal are over. The January transfer market for these teams serves to correct mistakes made during the summer transfer market and therefore the responsibility of sports directors is greater in this period. The mistakes made also in January lead to that relegation, which for a club means almost death from a financial point of view and in times like these consequently difficult to manage.
