Empoli: One in, one out

Empoli reportedly want Chievo goalkeeper Stefano Sorrentino, but Luca Antonelli is ‘one step away’ from joining Bologna.

According to Sky Sport Italia, Empoli boss Beppe Iachini has personally requested Sorrentino, whom he coached at Palermo between 2013 and 2016.

The 39-year-old has started 18 of Chievo’s 19 Serie A games so far this season and kept four clean sheets in their last eight matches.

As for Antonelli, the broadcaster claims Bologna are trying to close a deal for Antonelli and the ‘white smoke’ is close.

The left-back only joined the Tuscans from Milan last summer, but a thigh injury and the presence of Manuel Pasqual have limited him to just 10 appearances this term. 

The Rossoblu have already signed Roberto Soriano and Nicola Sansone this month as they bid to leave the relegation zone.
