Gabbiadini price scares off Saints

Napoli won’t lower their €25m asking price for Manolo Gabbiadini, which is a long way off the biggest bid from Southampton.

The Partenopei acknowledged the striker doesn’t fit into their system and is on the market in January, but have found difficult selling at their expectations.

According to Tuttosport, Southampton are the club showing the most interest so far, but their offer has only reached €16m.

On the other hand, Napoli are demanding €25m and it’s rumoured this has caused friction within their ranks.

President Aurelio De Laurentiis won’t lower the asking price, despite the pleas from director of sport Cristiano Giuntoli.

Other sides like Milan, West Ham United, West Bromwich Albion and Stoke City have shown an interest, but the Saints seem to be the most likely candidates.
