Gabbiadini IN, Jay Rodriguez OUT: Saints Ready To Ditch Former England Striker For Arriving Italian
They will pay £14 million up front with the rest in add-ons after Gabbiadini agreed a four-year-deal worth £40,000-a-week.
This news can finally end Jay Rodrguez’s spell at Southampton who missed the entire 2014-15 season with a serious knee injury.
A bid in the region of £15 million is expected to be submitted by the Baggies.
Manolo Gabbiadini will become Southampton’s second most expensive signing after Moroccan winger Sofiane Boufal who costed £16 million from Ligue 1 side Lille.
Gabbiadini has scored 15 goals for Napoli in 55 Serie A matches and has won 6 caps for his country.
