Italian Serie A News, Results, Analysis and Features on Football Soccer

ProSoccerTalk again hits the right note, analysis of the increasingly hot rumour that Mario Gomez will sign for Napoli if Edinson Cavani leaves. Such a signing would signal a major change for a team that has tried to change Serie A football, Richard Farley writes.

Jose Mourinho has barely settled into his Chelsea chair but he is already looking to improve his squad. His first two targets, according to Caught Offside, are a rival’s forward and a Serie A forward that is hot on everyone’s radar.

Cesare Prandelli has named his 23 man roster for the 2013 Confederations Cup in Brazil, and the squad is full of veteran international players. All but one player is from Serie A, and you can see the roster here.

In another important tournament across the ocean, Euroscout takes a look at some key players from the European U-21 Championships, including three from the Italian team. A player to watch for me is Lorenzo Insigne, who really played well for Napoli at times late in the year.

As we had discussed in this space prior, Gennaro Gattuso has been named the new manager of Palermo, who will play next season in Serie B. This is the Serie A star’s first full-time gig and he will be working for a man known for having a short leash.

Transfer Rumour of the Day: Napoli is busy lining up players for the not-as-yet-transferred Cavani. Matt Law writes that the Southern Italian club is kicking the tires on Sevilla’s Alvaro Negredo, a striker who is definitely on the market due to the La Liga side’s immense debt.
