It is not only the Premier League side that are interested, with Schalke and Borussia Monchengladbach also looking into the possibilty off a move.

The 25 year old has made nineteen appearances in all competitions so far this season for Napoli, with a return of five goals.

Gabbiadini signed for Napoli in January 2015, but looks set to leave Stadio San Paolo just two years later, with a number of well respected clubs asking about his availability. 

Southampton currently sit in eleventh position in the English Premier League, having scored twenty two goals in as many games. Acquiring a striker of Gabbiadini's quality would be a boost to the side, as they look to convert more of their chances, with the hope of pushing into the top half
