Manolo Gabbiadini is undergoing a medical with Sampdoria ahead of completing his move back from Southampton.
ANSA and Gianluca Di Marzio’s website report Gabbiadini checked into a medical laboratory in Genoa on Friday morning.
The striker is then headed for Samp’s offices, where he will sign a four-and-a-half-year contract.
The Blucerchiati have reportedly agreed to loan the 27-year-old for €3m, with an obligation to buy set at €9m.
Both sources add he was joined at his medical by Dodo, who has returned from his loan spell at Santos but will be sent out again, with Bologna touted.
