Everton line up fantastic forward to support Lukaku

By Mark Peters IN General,Transfers - 20:00 Aug 22nd 2016

Keeping hold of Romelu Lukaku would represent a major signal of intent from Everton, though the Belgium international is in desperate need of some support in attack.

Step forward Manolo Gabbiadini if Football Italia are to be believed, with the Toffees said to have submitted a €25m bid for the striker.

MANOLO GABBIADINI

Currently on the books of Napoli, the 24-year-old has moved around a lot during his Serie A career, turning out for four different clubs.

Since leaving Atalanta at the end of the 2011/12 campaign, spells with Bologna, Sampdoria and his current employers have yielded a goal roughly once every 3.5 top-flight games:

These numbers may not sound great on paper, but it is important to remember that the energetic Italy international has been used right across the forward line.

Also, just 13 of his Serie A appearances since joining Napoli have come from the start, meaning that his minutes per goal average is significantly better than Lukaku’s in the Premier League during the same period:
