SPAL: Dabo in, Kurtic out

SPAL are on the verge of taking Bryan Dabo from Fiorentina and moving Jasmin Kurtic to Parma.

Sportitalia’s Alfredo Pedulla reports SPAL are unable to keep Kurtic for “contractual reasons” and have found a buyer in Parma.

The 30-year-old has played for the Biancazzurri since January 2018, initially arriving on loan from Atalanta, and has made 18 appearances this season, scoring two goals. 

Replacing him will be Dabo, who conversely not kicked a competitive ball for Fiorentina so far in 2019-20.

Berardi ban, Lazio racism fine

Sassuolo star Domenico Berardi is given a two-match ban for insulting officials, while Lazio are initially fined €20,000 for racist abuse of Mario Balotelli.

The Lega Serie A Disciplinary Commission gave its verdicts after the Week 18 round of games.

Berardi was sent off after the final whistle of Sassuolo’s controversial 2-1 defeat to Genoa, as the referee’s report confirms he made “gravely offensive” comments to one of the officials in the tunnel back to the dressing rooms.

He has been handed a two-match ban.

SPAL sell Moncini to Benevento

SPAL have sold former Italy Under-21 striker Gabriele Moncini to Serie B side Benevento for a reported €2.5m.

Moncini only returned to SPAL in July but made just five appearances for the Biancazzurri.

He returns to the second tier, where he scored 12 goals in just 17 games for Cittadella during the second half of last season.

The 23-year-old will now help Benevento in their promotion push, with the Campanian side 12 points clear at the top.

SPAL swoop for Pinamonti?

Mattia Destro’s arrival could signal the end of the road for Andrea Pinamonti at Genoa, with SPAL keen on taking the Inter loanee.

Genoa signed former Roma and Milan striker Destro from Bologna earlier today, and this could spark a domino effect in Serie A.

Torino boss Walter Mazzarri admits he is struggling to understand why his side constantly switch off during games. “It’s difficult to explain all these incidents...”

Toro have fluctuated from good to bad within the space of a single match, the most famous case coming in the 3-3 draw with Verona after they were 3-0 up, and Mazzarri is at a loss to explain why.
