The Italian is set to leave Naples after enduring a tough start to the season
Wednesday, January 11, 2017
West Brom have emerged as favourites to land highly-rated Napoli striker Manolo Gabbiadini, after reportedly agreeing a fee with the Italian club.
Gabbiadini is set to leave Naples after enduring a tough start to the season, in which he has netted just five times in 19 appearances.
Southampton were also reportedly keen in securing the striker’s services, but according to gazzetta.it, a fee of around £17m has been agreed with the Baggies.
West Brom boss Tony Pulis is keen to add more firepower to his attack and Gabbiadini could be the man to fill that void.
However, should there be any last minute hitches with the move to The Hawthorns, then Bundesliga side Wolfsburg, also long time admirers, are waiting in the wings.
