Sanchez a steal for Inter

Inter's deal with Manchester United for Alexis Sanchez is zero-risk and with potentially massive benefits, writes Football Italia Chief Correspondent Richard Hall.

"Alexis Sanchez to Inter is a gamble that both parties could win comfortably.” These were the words of Udinese legend and former team-mate of Alexis Sanchez, Antonio Di Natale. The former Azzurri hitman had a point, when you analyse the terms that will see the Chilean arrive in Milan, one has to think it is a steal. The agreement is a risk-free one for Antonio Conte and could, in turn, see the rebirth of a superlative talent that could light up Serie A.

Official: Udinese's Scuffet to Spezia

Udinese goalkeeper Simone Scuffet has officially joined Serie B side Spezia on a season-long loan with an option to buy.

With his route to Udinese’s goal blocked by Juan Musso, Scuffet will spend at least another year away from the club.

He made his debut in Serie A aged just 17, replacing the injured Zeljko Brkic in a match against Bologna in 2014, and went on to play 39 times for the Zebrette.

The 23-year-old was highly rated when he first burst on to the scene and had attracted interest from Atletico Madrid.

Udinese swoop for Sema

Udinese have agreed a deal to sign Watford and Sweden winger Ken Sema, according to Sportitalia.

Due to the close relationship between the two clubs and Sema’s contract still having four years left to run, Udinese are expected to take him on loan.

The 25-year-old joined Watford from Ostersunds FK last summer and went on to play 22 times for the Hornets, scoring one goal and providing three assists.

However, he does not figure in their plans this season and will instead fill the void on the Zebrette’s left flank.

Coppa: Mandragora double for Udinese

Udinese pushed Sudtirol aside 3-1 with a Rolando Mandragora brace to secure their spot in the Fourth Round of the Coppa Italia, where they will face Bologna.

It took quite a while for Igor Tudor’s men to get going against the Serie C outfit, as Mandragora and Ignacio Pussetto skimmed the woodwork, while Kevin Lasagna’s goal was ruled offside.

Lasagna did break the deadlock when running on to a Rodrigo De Paul through ball to beat the goalkeeper one-on-one in the second half.
