Now that the window has slammed shut, it's time to start with the tedious business of housekeeping. In this case, it's getting updated Europa League rosters submitted. For Fiorentina, there aren't any real surprises on who's in and who's out, but it's still fun to see who Paulo Sousa can call upon for the Tottenham fixtures.

So, as you can see, there aren't many surprises. Every player with an asterisk (*) is a youth player who's eligible for tournament minutes; the biggest surprise, I suppose, is that Bernardeschi is a youth player and Diakhatè isn't, although I'm sure it has to with some sort of byzantine player registration system with homegrown slots and EU slots and heavens knows what else. Other than that, the new arrivals have all filled in spots abandoned by their predecessors on the roster: Benalouane for Bagadur, Costa for Mario Suárez, Tello for Ante Rebić, Kone for Joan Verdú, Zárate for Rossi. The only departed player who doesn't have a direct replacement on the roster is Gilberto, and there's now plenty of depth at his spot.
