Wed 26 January 2022 | 11:30

Serie A title race is exciting for football fans because, in addition to the Milan Derby at the top of the table, Napoli and Atalanta are showing grab potential too. Let's see how the Italian clubs spend the 2022 January transfer window.

If you compare the top of Serie A standings with the past year, you'd find some similarities. Inter and Milan are competing for the lead, only this time Inter have surpassed their cross city rival sooner. The title defenders are greatly dealing with the departure of

Romelu Lukaku

,

Achraf Hakimi

, and of course Antonio Conte. They repaired their squad in the least expensive possible way.

Nerazzurri managed to reach the knockout phase of the Champions League after a long time. Milan, on the other hand, was unlucky and was eliminated in the Death Group of the competition where Liverpool and Atlético Madrid advanced to the next level. Atalanta dramatically lost the race to Villarreal and went on to Europa League. Juventus is the most successful Serie A club in current European competitions. They were the leader of a group that included Champions League title defender Chelsea. Lazio and Roma are struggling to reach the higher ranks. None of the Serie A clubs are capable of having big transfers during the winter transfer window of 2022.

Read on to find out more about the latest Serie A winter 2021 transfers & news:

Despite that most of the clubs are concentrating on their queue of expired contracts, this transfer window could change Serie A 2021-22 season’s conclusion.

Sergio Oliveira

Roma has opened talks with FC Porto to sign the 29 year old midfielder.
