Have West Brom Found The Perfect Partner For Rondon Up Front?

It is now West Bromwich Albion, who are in the queue to land Napoli’s forward Manolo Gabbiadini. One of the hottest prospect this transfer window, the 25-year-old has been linked with numerous Premier League clubs like West Ham United, Stoke City, Everton, Southampton and German Bundesliga side Wolfsburg.

According to reports, Tony Pulis has already made a move for the Italian forward to wrap things up ahead of the long line of suitors. Wolfsburg was the primary destination for Gabbiadini until some time back, but the German side are now willing to take him on loan and assess him before placing a bid of 15 million pounds next summer. However, the Baggies are willing to strike a permanent deal this January and that could be a better option for Napoli.

After finishing the first half of the season in a strong position, West Brom are going all out to reinforce their squad. Pulis is optimistic that Saido Berahino will agree terms on a new contract, although Stoke City have been hot on his heels. Apart from that, West Brom have also made a sensational bid for Sporting Lisbon’s Portugal international midfielder William Carvalho, who has a £38million buy-out clause. They have also inquired for Everton midfielder, James McCarthy.

However, Gabbiadini seems like a realistic option and someone who could bring more sharpness to West Brom’s attack. With only Salomon Rondon as an option, West Brom have struggled a lot in big games. With Berahino lacking match fitness, options up front have been immensely limited for the manager and he would need an effective forward to produce in big matches.

Gabbiadini scored for Napoli against Sampdoria as they came from behind to win 2-1. He has now scored seven goals in three Serie A games and one in the Champions League. Although the figures don’t tell much about his quality, his versatility makes him an effective option in the attacking third.

Standing in at 181 cm, he could be really strong from the set-pieces, which is an essential attribute in the Premier League. He is known for his shooting prowess in the Italian league. Gabbiadini is a dead-ball specialist as well and scored some stunning free kicks last season. Another huge advantage he would bring is his ability to play anywhere in the attacking third.

The only concern, however, would be his hasty passing. Although it could be a hindrance for him in the league, he could improve it fast playing alongside Nacer Chadli, James Morrison and Darren Chadli. He isn’t quite habituated to defending in Serie A and if he comes, he has to adapt to it fast.
