Serie A is one of the busiest markets during the January transfer window for the simple reason that Italian clubs are constantly thinking about the short terms gains or losses.
With the manager merry-go-round in full swing, clubs will want to provide their new bosses with a couple of gifts in the transfer window.
With so many players part-owned by several clubs, it is no wonder that Italian clubs engage in such frivolous dealings.
Players are swapped, used as down payments on other players or loaned out to avoid the necessary transfer fees being paid immediately.
With just under a week until the window slams shut, here are the six biggest deals in Italy so far.
Several are big-money signings, while a couple more are big in terms of the clubs and players involved.
