SCFC Links: Manolo Gabbiadini
Gabbiadini is a name familiar to Stoke fans.
Unlike his namesake Marco, Manolo would know where the back of the net is in a red and white shirt though, I’m sure.
The modern day Gabbiadini is a striker that can also play on the wing, a type of player Mark Hughes is after judging by his recent tactics.
Gabbiadini would suit the rotation Hughes likes to employ amongst his front four attacking players.
Despite having a fantastic season at Napoli- during which he broke his international duck- he was out scored by Gonzalo Higuain and seems to be available, but for a rumoured £19 million.
Is he worth that price tag? That’s for Hughes to ponder, of course, but I can see us giving this one a miss.
