Two days ago, Manolo Gabbiadini’s agent admitted the Southampton striker should continue in the Premier League as there are several reports linking him with a return to Italy.

Calciomercato has taken the comments made by the 27-year-old’s representative and they start the story with ‘beyond what are the formal denials’ because they are not willing to believe Silvio Pagliari’s words regarding his client.

It is claimed the former Napoli man is on the radar of two Serie A clubs as Bologna and Fiorentia are interested in the frontman and these sides are looking for a move in January.

He’s seen his first team opportunities limited this season, with only three starts to his name in the Premier League.

Gabbiadini’s current deal with the Saints will run down in 2021 and the report from Calciomercato mentions that a transfer could be possible in the mid-season window, despite denials from the player’s agent.

The south coast club’s poor form saw them part ways with their manager, Mark Hughes and it should be seen if the Italy international can turn things around under the new manager before the transfer window reopens on January 1st.
