Southampton Agree Deal For Serie A Star

Southampton Agree Deal For Serie A Star

Southampton have agreed a club record deal for Napoli forward Manolo Gabbiadini.

The Italian international will undergo a medical on the south coast tomorrow ahead of a £17m move to St. Mary's.

Itaian football expert James Horncastle told BT Sport yesterday that the deal for the 25-year-old was at a 'critical stage' and it appears to now be over the finishing line, with a fee of £14.6m to be paid up front, with further increments to be paid as bonuses.

Gabbiadini, who has just five goals to his name this season, was once courted by Everton but will now sign on the dotted line for their Premier League rivals, pocketing himself £40,000-per-week in the process.

The Napoli forward has also spent time with Atalanta, Bologna and Sampdoria during his career, scoring 58 goals in 215 career appearances. He's also earned six caps for the Italian national team, scoring his only goal for the Azzurri during a 2-2 friendly draw with Romania in November 2015.
