10 Serie A Players in Need of Summer Transfer Moves
Serie A has plenty of players that will look to find greener pastures this summer.
Whether it's because their current team isn't giving them the chance they need or their performances have warranted some of Europe's elite to come knocking, expect plenty of wheeling and dealing throughout the next transfer period.
Here are 10 players likely to move on once the season comes to a close and the negotiating begins.
Fabio Quagliarella (Juventus)
After being an impact player for Juventus last season, Fabio Quagliarella went missing after the likes of Fernando Llorente and Carlos Tevez were signed.
The striker has only started three games all season for the Bianconeri, scoring only one domestic goal.
Mirko Vucinic (Juventus)
Mirko Vucinic is another striker in the Juventus ranks that has had a hard time finding space because of the more notable stars in front of him.
He's a mercurial player that could really help out a team needing a burst of creativity up front with the added element of unpredictability.
Adil Rami/Adel Taarabt (Milan)
Both of these players need a summer move—back to Milan.
The two players came in the January transfer window on loan from their respective clubs and have cemented themselves a place in the Rossoneri formation.
Expect both of these players to be bought out from their old teams as Milan looks to rebuild for the future.
Domenico Berardi (Sassuolo)
The teenage striker is currently playing for a team that will most likely be relegated back to Serie B next season.
Juventus has the option to take him back, but it's likely that he'll be moved to another small Serie A team where he can consistently play and work on his abilities.
Domenico Berardi has scored 12 goals this season, a pretty remarkable rate for a player who's still only 19 years old.
Federico Marchetti (Lazio)
Once considered Gianluigi Buffon's backup with the Italian national team, Federico Marchetti has fallen off quite a bit this season with Lazio.
A slew of inconsistent performances led the Capital club to try out the younger Etrit Berisha in between the pipes.
Marchetti could be a hot commodity this summer as a few teams will look to improve the goalkeeping position. Expect Milan to make a bid.
Gabi Paletta (Parma)
Expect Gabi Paletta's performances this season to draw plenty of interest from some of the bigger clubs around Europe as quality central defenders are at a premium.
Paletta has been one of the main reasons for Parma's rise to a Europa League spot as he has formed a great defensive partnership with Alessandro Lucarelli.
Alessio Cerci (Torino)
It's time for Alessio Cerci to prove that he can perform with a team fighting for more than just a mid-table position.
Cerci has become a familiar figure in Cesare Prandelli's Italian national team and has had his best season so far as a professional at Torino.
There will be an assortment of bigger teams lining up to snap up his services this summer.
Juan Iturbe (Hellas Verona)
The Argentine winger has been an exceptional surprise for Hellas Verona since joining from Portugal last summer.
He has blistering pace, creativity and a fantastic left foot, which he puts on display often.
Don't be surprised to see Hellas Verona exercising their buy-out clause for Juan Iturbe, but there's an even better chance that he'll end up playing for a European giant in the near future.
Giacomo Bonaventura (Atalanta)
Every year we see a mass exodus from Atalanta as the small club from Bergamo simply cannot compete with the big spenders that come to pry away their prized possessions.
Giacomo Bonaventura is one of their most dynamic players, a midfielder who can get forward and score just as well as he can press the opposition.
He has been on the radar of some Italian clubs, and there'll most likely be a few bids put in for him.
Victor Ibarbo (Cagliari)
With the bizarre stadium situation at Cagliari annoying players, the likes of Victor Ibarbo could be sold this summer.
Radja Nainggolan decided he didn't want to stick around any longer and left during the January transfer session, and others from the Sardinian outfit could follow suit.
