In this photo taken on Sunday, Nov. 5, 2017, Inter Milan's Yuto Nagatomo controls the ball during a Serie A soccer match between Inter Milan and Torino, at the San Siro stadium in Milan, Italy. On a relatively quiet transfer deadline day in Italy, the bigger news was the players leaving the country. Brazilian defender Emerson Palmieri moved to Chelsea from Roma in a deal worth up to 29 million euros while Japan and Inter Milan defender Yuto Nagatomo joined Galatasaray on loan until the end of the season. Roma immediately replaced Emerson with Argentina left back Jonathan Silva, who joined on loan from Sporting Lisbon until the end of the season with the Giallorossi having the option to make the deal permanent.
