Balotelli opens Brescia era

After 1,228 days, Mario Balotelli will play in Serie A again tonight when Brescia host Juventus, so Emmet Gates wonders what version of the striker we’ll see.

Mario Balotelli is back, again. Three years after his last spell in Serie A with Milan that ended in a solitary goal from 20 games, Italy’s prodigal son has returned. This homecoming is a little different, as he’s returned to where the Balotelli story began, to Brescia.

Report: Fener join Dalbert race

The Dalbert saga threatens to take another twist as it is claimed Fenerbahce have joined the race for the Inter left-back.

Dalbert seemed to be edging towards Fiorentina in exchange for Cristiano Biraghi after former club Nice could not agree terms with Inter.

However, Turkish outlet Skor is now reporting the Brazilian could move to Fener on loan.

Furthermore, there is no mention of Fiorentina in the report – only that they are ‘in competition’ with Nice.

Dalbert ready to decide for Viola

There are increasing reports Henrique Dalbert has agreed to join Fiorentina in exchange for Cristiano Biraghi to Inter.

The two clubs struck a deal a couple of weeks ago, but it all ground to a halt because Dalbert refused to make the move to Florence.

He had his heart set on a return to his former outfit Nice, but the Ligue 1 side failed to agree terms with Inter.

Dalbert was forced to reconsider and is still taking his time over it, which is why he is on the Inter bench for tonight’s Serie A game with Lecce.

Napoli to loan out trio

Napoli are ready to loan Adam Ounas to Nice and Vlad Chiriches towards Sassuolo, with Lorenzo Tonelli in Fiorentina talks.

According to Sportitalia, the Partenopei are going to focus on whittling down the squad in the final week of the transfer window.

Ounas won’t have much playing time in Naples after the arrival of Hirving Lozano, so the Algerian is going to be sent out on loan to gain experience.

However, Napoli will not include an option to buy, as they have every intention of bringing him back in future.

Dalbert accepts Biraghi swap?

Henrique Dalbert has reportedly accepted the Fiorentina move, allowing Cristiano Biraghi to replace him at Inter.

The two clubs have been in agreement for some time, but the exchange was held up by the Brazilian’s refusal to wear the Viola jersey.

He had been set on a return to Nice, but they failed to agree terms with Inter, so that transfer collapsed.

According to Tuttosport and Sportitalia, Dalbert appears to have changed his mind now and is ready to join Fiorentina.
