Fiorentina are interested in Manolo Gabbiadini, according to reports in Italy, but he’d prefer to stay at Southampton.
The Italian international joined the Saints from Napoli in January 2017, but last season he managed just five goals in 33 appearances.
According to SportMediaset, the Viola have enquired about his availability, with a view to bringing him back to Serie A.
The Saints may be open to a sale, but Gabbiadini himself is thought to prefer to stay in the Premier League.
