Two days before the summer transfer market closes: what is Hellas going to do in these last days?

Gardini, Setti and Sogliano

The transfer market will close the day after tomorrow at 7 o'clock pm.
As usual, lot of 'last minute' deals will be officialized that day and Hellas is still looking for two or maybe three good signings. What might be useful for the gialloblu?

Verona was interested since the beginning of this transfer market session last July to a bomber who can guarantee at least 15 goals, thing that wasn't present last season. Ferrari was suspended for three years due to calcioscommesse scandal and can't take part to the official games while Pichlmann was sold to Spezia. The only forwards in Hellas team are new signing Andrea Cocco, who is now injured, and Sasa Bjelanovic, but Sogliano and Setti want to sell him even if manager Andrea Mandorlini will be happy if it'd be confirmed, who is about to join Cittadella.

Ferdinando Sforzini
Why then? Bjelanovic scored 5 goals in 24 games and he doesn't suit to the identikit of a real bomber like it is Ferdinando Sforzini, the real target for the gialloblu.

Anyway, Sforzini's deal is very difficult: Grosseto president doesn't want to sell him unless a club offer €1.7M, a price considered exaggerated by Sogliano.
The bomber born in Rome, who scored 20 goals last season, would like to sign for Hellas as he said in an interview, and the gialloblu want to sign him as well. Sforzini's agent, Alessandro Moggi, said in the last hours that something could happen but Grosseto won't sell him before they sign a new forward, Corvia the option.

What if Sforzini won't move? Daniele Cacia is a target but Lecce's forward is close to sign for rivals Spezia: Parma will buy the forward and then they will loan him to the aquilotti.
Other targets such as Morimoto, who is a pupil of Setti, or Perbet or Bonazzoli or Paolucci don't convince.
Caracciolo was an option but his wage is elevated: €650.000 per year.
Giulio Ebagua

In the last week there was a new name corresponding in Giulio Ebagua, the Nigerian forward who played with Torino and Catania last season. Ebagua is a Varese player but he's about to leave. He had some differences with Varese supporters and the club is trying to sell him. On the strong Nigerian there is also the interest of Reggina, that will try to buy him only if Bonazzoli will accept Pro Vercelli move, and above all Romanian club Cluj, that will play the Champions League preliminary tonight.
Ebagua toward his agent said he would prefer to stay in Italy and that's one of the reason why he might join Hellas. The player was also appreciated by Mandorlini who said it'd be a valid option.

Stefano Morrone
Furthermore, in an interview after Modena game, Sean Sogliano said he would like to sign other two players. What players could they be? The sporting director believes Hellas need another midfielder, a centre half. The identikit correspond with Stefano Morrone, Parma captain, who is close by new arrivals. The midfielder, 33, was close to Spezia but declined their offer. The deal might end well and he will replace, partially, Giuseppe Russo's departure to Ascoli.
Alternatives? Difficult to find others, Morrone is one of the most reliable in his role in Italy and could accept the gialloblu offer. He'd be certainly a good signing, a player who can make the difference in Serie B.

Francesco Modesto
And the third signing? A left full back. Giuseppe Pugliese's injury in the friendly match against Fiorentina complicated Sogliano's plans. The only Fatic, who didn't convinced at all in his first match against Modena, can't play for the whole season.

It's true that Albertazzi might also play as a left full back, but a well experienced player, for a team that want to be promoted to Serie A, is at least requested. And then Francesco Modesto seems to be the right investment.
The defender, 30, is a Parma player about to leave the ducali. On him there's the interest of Pescara, neo-promoted to Serie A. The difficulty on signing him is for his high wage.

Finally, nothing new for the players who are not in Hellas plans anymore.
Berrettoni is a target of Lega Pro team Lumezzane, Mancini might sign for Vicenza and Bjelanovic, as we said earlier, is set to sign for Cittadella within tomorrow.

Nothing is excepted, neither an unexpected signing. The sure thing is that the gialloblu will have at least a new bomber who will join the team and Andrea Cocco. It'll be two "hot" days where we'll see lot of twists.

Chances to join Hellas:
Defender: Modesto 20%
Midfielder: Morrone 60%
Forward: Sforzini 30%, Ebagua 50%, Cacia 10%, others 10%
