Gabbiadini To Bologna
Monday, 29th Jan 2018 13:19
Rumours in Italy are suggesting that Bologna are in negotiations with Southampton to sign Italian striker Manolo Gabbiadini.
However it seems that although that its reported that the two clubs are in contact and discussing the deal, that Bologna are aware that Saints are highly unlikely to sell in this transfer window given the precarious position of the club at present, but if they cant get Gabbiadini now, then they definately want to complete the deal in the summer.
Gabbiadini has been unlucky this season in that the formation that Mauricio Pellegrino plays does not suit his style, the manager likes to play wide men and put in crosses and that is not the talian's game and it was no surprise that he struggled earlier in the seasonbut that Charlie Austin was a lot more suited to the way we set up as a team.
Even with Austin injured the Italian has struggled for game time with Shane Long's bustling style better suited to our way of playing at present.
Gabbiadini is a class act and with a midfielder able to play balls into the channels he would get a hatful of goals, but not the way Pellegrino likes to play.
In the meantime though he might have to stay put for the rest of the season and could yet well prove to be vital in the run in.

Gylfi Not Irreplaceable- But Not Trying To Directly Replace Him Is Smart by BarneyLW
So the dust has finally settled. In what seemed like the most painstaking saga in living memory, Gylfi Sigurdsson is an Everton player. A man the club were silently resigned to eventually losing has moved on and like so often in the past, the club must plan for life without their star player.
Too many things for a title, but stop with the xenophobia accusations! by waynekerr55
I had planned to write this in a different fashion, but Bob Bradley's departure from the club changes a section of this blog. The conclusion was as expected. A seemingly good man and a tryer who simply wasn't up to the job. In short he should never have been given the job.
A New Hope At the Liberty? by BarneyLW
A feeling of déjà vu rose with the sun over Swansea this morning. Another manager out the door, another few days of links, speculation, supposed sightings of candidates spotted outside Rossi’s sampling the scampi. But for the first time in recent memory, there is hope in the air.
Swans Fans Were Angry- In A Totally Positive Way How a Common Enemy Helped Guidolin’s side pull of by BarneyLW
A return from the international break, which in truth was needed to clear the air around the club. A frustrating transfer market compounded and exacerbated back-to-back defeats against Hull City and the champions, Leicester. Boardroom shake-ups and a tough run of games has given the Jack Army little to be optimistic about.
