On Wednesday, the Italian Football Federation acknowledged to AFP that it had launched an investigation into a string of dubious moves.
According to Dailies La Repubblica and Il Tempo, Serie A's supervisory commission COVISOC has filed a report on 62 transactions from 2019 to 2021 to FIGC president Gabriele Gravina and the body's senior prosecutor Giuseppe Chine.
The FIGC informed AFP that its prosecutors had started an investigation, but it did not specify how many transfers were being looked into.
The procedures are suspected of being carried out with the goal of boosting the value of some players for accounting purposes or to help balance the books by using player exchanges.
According to Italian media, Juventus is involved in the vast bulk of the moves detailed in COVISOC's report.
