With Simone Verdi linked with a move away, Bologna are eyeing up former Napoli striker Manolo Gabbiadini as a possible replacement.
Manolo Gabbiadini is the latest player linked with a possible move to Bologna if Simone Verdi chooses to accept Napoli’s proposal, according to Gianluca Di Marzio.
The Rossoblu are considering bringing back the Italian after he spent a solitary season there in 2013.
His agent has already held talks with the club hierarchy in regards to a return to Italy after his time in England has been considered less than successful. Southampton may choose to retain Gabbiadini until at least the summer, thus Bologna would postpone the deal until then.
An alternative is Juventus owned U-20 talent Riccardo Orsolini who is desperately seeking pastures new after limited game time at Atalanta this season.
