UEFA licences to 16 Serie A clubs

A UEFA licence for 2020-21 has been granted to 16 out of 20 Serie A clubs, with Brescia, SPAL, Lecce and Genoa missing out.

The clubs can lodge an appeal within five days of the verdict.

As Atalanta’s Gewiss Stadium is still undergoing restructuring work, they have again chosen a different arena as their official base, although this can change as the work progresses.

They have picked the Mapei Stadium in Reggio-Emilia, the home of Sassuolo, although Atalanta played their Champions League games for this season at San Siro in Milan.

Fiorentina and Benfica call Paqueta

Fiorentina and Benfica are eager to give Milan flop Lucas Paqueta a new adventure, but would prefer it to be a loan with option to buy.

The Brazilian turns 23 in August and has struggled to make an impact since his €39m plus bonuses move from Flamengo in January 2019.

A summer exit is likely, but the Rossoneri want to get back most if not all of the money spent on the player.

According to Tuttosport, Sky Sport Italia and more, Fiorentina are asking to have Paqueta on a two-year loan with option to buy in 2022.

Castrovilli 'rejects Spurs & Dortmund'

Fiorentina midfielder Gaetano Castrovilli has reportedly rejected €45m moves to Tottenham Hotspur and Borussia Dortmund.

However, the website claims he refused both proposals because he has the ‘firm intention’ of staying in Italy.

The 23-year-old has three goals and two assists in 24 games for the Viola this season and made his Italy debut in November.
