Ishak Belfodil has moved to Inter

The basic deal has been confirmed by both Inter and Parma, though they are working on the final details.

According to Sky Sport Italia, the transfer is only a matter of hours away, as Cassano is polishing off the technical sponsor issue.

Defender Silvestre has also reportedly given his all-clear to the move despite early signs of doubt.

Inter will pay €10m (£8.4m) plus the loans with options to buy of Cassano and Silvestre in exchange for French-Algerian forward Belfodil.

Juventus could sell Claudio Marchisio in order to raise more funds to sign Stevan Jovetic.

The Italy international has been linked with a move away from the Old Lady after admitting that he may consider his future this summer.

Manchester United and Monaco have both been rumoured to be interested in the midfielder, and according to the newspaper, Antonio Conte’s men may consider offers so they can up their bid for the Fiorentina forward.

The Bianconeri are said to have offered the Tuscan team €20m (£16.9m) plus Luca Marrone and Manolo Gabbiadini for the Montenegrin.

The Artemio Franchi side are holding out for a fee of nearer to €30m (£25.5m) though.

Felipe Anderson is reportedly lodging a FIFA appeal to end his contract with Doyen Sports, freeing him up for a move to Lazio.

The 20-year-old Santos midfielder has agreed terms with the Biancocelesti for several weeks, but negotiations are on the verge of collapse due to his third-party owners.

British sporting investors Doyen Sports own 50 per cent of Felipe Anderson’s economic rights and Lazio complain they have repeatedly changed their minds over the price-tag, while his agent called the company "bandits."

Amid their frustration, it’s reported by Brazilian site Lancenet that Felipe Anderson will lodge an appeal to FIFA.

The world footballing body is trying to clamp down on third-party owners, though it is common practice in South America.

    West Brom's Berahino given time off to consider future

    West Bromwich Albion's England under-21 striker Saido Berahino will be given time off until next Monday to consider his position after suggesting he would not play for the club again, sources close to the player said on Wednesday. Berahino was furious after negotiations on a proposed move to Tottenham Hotspur broke down on the final day of the transfer window, with Albion chairman Jeremy Peace blaming Spurs for undervaluing and unsettling the player with four different bids. "I can officially say I will never play (for) Jeremy Peace," Berahino tweeted on Tuesday. More »
