Naples - Manolo
Gabbiadini will leave Serie A title chasers Napoli this month after his
agent confirmed the striker will leave for Germany or England.
The 25-year-old was widely tipped as the future of the Italy's strike
force, but a lack of first-team football in Naples has stalled his
development and he's searching for a new challenge.
West Ham and Tottenham have been strongly linked with Gabbiadini in
the past and following the arrival of Arkadiusz Milik from Ajax and
Leonardo Pavoletti from Genoa last week, the Italian is clearly not in
the plans of manager Maurizio Sarri.
Southampton, Stoke and Wolfsburg have reportedly joined his list of
suitors, with a transfer fee in the region of €20 million being set by
"All will be arranged for Gabbiadini by next week at the latest," agent Silvio Pagliari told Onda Libera. "This decision has now been taken in agreement with Napoli.
"He will be going to one of those two leagues (Bundesliga or Premier League), and could do well in both."
Gabbiadini has scored 38 goals and registered 13 assists in 158 Serie A games.
