Sampdoria coach Giampaolo delighted to land Southampton striker Gabbiadini

Sampdoria coach Marco Giampaolo is delighted with their deal for Southampton striker Manolo Gabbiadini.

Gabbiadini sealed his move this week, with Giampaolo confident his struggles in England won't be seen at Samp.

The coach said, "He makes the team even more competitive.

"The attacking department has been quite prolific until today, but a player of that level here improves us, creates new incentives and enriches us."

The 27-year-old joined the Saints from Napoli for £14.6m in June 2017 but has been less than prolific, scoring just 12 goals in 60 appearances.
