The Italian Serie A has been on a bit of a downward spiral for the past few seasons, well the last time any Italian team did something great in the European stage was when Jose Mourinho led Inter Milan to a historic treble in 2011 but after that the league has suffered with low attendances and the performances in European competitions has slid the Italian clubs’ coefficient way down, Portugal are on their way to overtake the nation.
The January transfer window is a bit of a hit and miss for most clubs, players want a move out of their current clubs but having playing half a season for one club they are either priced way too high or are looking for cut deals, here are 3 players who might be moving away from the Serie A to the English Premier League in January 2015.
1. Gonzalo Higuain – Napoli
This was supposed to be Napoli’s season, to win the Scudetto, to travel across Europe in the Champions League, they invested in the squad and were supposed to push on from a third placed finish last season. All that fell apart when Athletic Bilbao beat them in the qualifying rounds of the UEFA Champions league and then they had a stuttering start to the season.
Gonzalo Higuain has been a striker who has said that he wants to play at the top level, which means he wants to move to a club playing in the Champions League and Liverpool have been in desperate need on a striker who can finish. Another bonus is Higuain would would not be cup tied in the Champions League, he would be a brilliant signing for any of the top clubs.
