‘Gabbiadini ready to step up’

The agent of Manolo Gabbiadini feels his client could join an Italian giant after his exploits at Bologna this season.

The Italian Under-21 international striker moved to the Dall’Ara on loan in the summer after Juventus bought a half-share in him from Atalanta.

“His campaign to date has been excellent,” Silvio Pagliari told calciomercato.it in an interview.

“He’s scored six goals, while playing out wide, and he’s started 16 League games. They are certainly important numbers.

“Manolo is ready to take the next step up, to play for a great team – even if he just has to concentrate on ending this season well.

“After that we will sit down around a table with Juventus and Atalanta to evaluate what to do next. He has no real preference at this stage. Let’s see what happens.”

Gabbiadini, 21, has been used in 28 games Serie A matches this term for a total of 1650 minutes.
