The transfer window has ended, but it has not yet been over.
A number of clubs have been given the green light to take up their new contracts, with Roma set to receive the largest fee of the season.
This news will be welcomed by many who have been waiting patiently for the day they will be able to sign a player who will make an impact for their club.
But with Juventus and Roma already both set to sign new contracts with an eye towards the 2019-20 season, we have put together our list of the best free transfers to get your football fix in Serie A. With that in mind, we will be taking a look at the top transfers in the summer and the clubs who should be making a run at a top-flight title.1.
Lazio: Ljubisa Jovcevic (22)A classy and combative midfielder, Lazio have made a strong start to the campaign, and have picked up three points from their first two games, all at home to Roma.
While Lazio’s defence has been exposed at times by Roma, their attacking prowess has been on full display for a number of seasons now, and with the arrival of a new coach in Ljubblico, the likes of the likes Ofir Gomes, Paulo Fassone, and Mauro Icardi, this could be the year Lazio get their best defence for years.
Lazios manager, Dario Marchetti, is a fan favourite and will look to add to the squad with the signing of a striker and centre-back, while the arrival on loan of former Lazio captain Federico Bernardeschi could also help to ensure Lazio remain in the hunt for the title.2.
Napoli: Stefano Sorrentino (30)The Italian international has had a great start to his career in Serie B with Napoli, where he has been a key figure in their resurgence from a second place finish in the 2014-15 season to an automatic Europa League spot this term.
He has scored six goals in 13 appearances so far this season, and while his style of play may not suit the Napoli style of football, he is a player that is likely to provide the needed cover to the Napolese midfield, especially when playing against weaker opposition.3.
AC Milan: Giorgio Chiellini (23)Chiellis rise to prominence with Milan, who were relegated to Serie A last season and had the misfortune of facing the eventual champions Juventus in the Champions League.
However, the Rossoneri boss has been given another chance to take the team to the next level by replacing former boss Carlo Ancelotti, and the Italian international could be set to help the team become a threat once again, with his goalscoring form and experience.4.
Juventus: Andrea Mancini (31)Juventus fans will be hoping to see Manci make his debut in Serie C this season as they are in need of a forward to bolster the attack.
The Juventus legend is a big fan of the Rossonese, and has been heavily linked with a move to Turin, and Mancisi could be a good addition for the Serie A giants.5.
Napoleonic: Javi Martinez (32)After a solid start to 2017-18, Javi has struggled to find his way into the Napoleonics starting XI.
However with the return of new coach Giuseppe Marotta, the Uruguayan has found his way onto the field, and could see Napoli reach the Europa League for the first time since 2012-13.
Martinez could also be set for a big season with Napoleino, with the Argentine having scored 20 goals in 32 appearances so Far, and it will be a massive boost for the club.6.
Roma: Federico Della Vedova (29)This is the man to get us up to Serie C level this season.
After the departure of Marcello Lippi, and a new look squad, Della is the new man at the helm of the Giallorossi, and he is not afraid to make a change and bring his own style of playing to the club, with both Lippi and Marcelli being sacked this season for various reasons.7.
Inter: Stefane Papaioannou (33)Inter have had a tough start to Serie E, but have managed to build on that with a solid 2-0 win over Torino at the Stadio Olimpico.
With a host of talented youngsters joining the team, Inter could be looking to continue their success, with their young midfielders including former Juventus and AC Milan striker Andrea Ranocchia and AC Lazio striker Daniel Pérez, as well as young talents like goalkeeper Gianluca Mazzola and striker Daniel Sergent.8.
Sassuolo: Gianluigi Buffon (30, 30)It
