Report: Spurs and West Ham battling for Napoli's Manolo Gabbiadini, will cost £19m

Stoke City, Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United are reportedly keen on Napoli hitman Manolo Gabbiadini.

According to Sky Italia's Gianluca Di Marzio, Tottenham Hotspur are in a battle with Stoke City and West Ham United for the signature of Italian international striker Manolo Gabbiadini.

Gabbiadini, 24, had spells with Atalanta, Cittadella, Juventus and Bologna before settling at Sampdoria, where he hit an impressive 19 goals in 50 games.

That form for Sampdoria earned him international recognition, as well as a January 2015 move to Napoli, where 11 goals in 30 games - mostly as a substitute behind star striker Gonzalo Higuain - meant his reputation continued to soar.

This term, Gabbiadini has again been used mostly as a substitute, starting just eight games in all competitions - and it seems that he could now leave the Stadio San Paolo in search of first-team football this summer.

Sky Italia's Gianluca Di Marzio claims that Napoli slapped a €25m (£19m) asking price on Gabbiadini, and will keep that asking price on his head despite him barely starting this season.

It's added that three Premier League clubs are all hoping to land Gabbiadini this summer, with Stoke City, Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United all looking to land the Italian international in a big-money deal.

With so much competition, Gabbiadini could have his pick of the clubs if they manage to meet Napoli's asking price - but which club would he be better off signing for?

Stoke have some big-name players in their ranks such as Marko Arnautovic, Xherdan Shaqiri and Bojan, but whilst Mark Hughes needs to bring in a striker this summer, the lack of European football at the Britannia Stadium means that the Potters may be at the bottom of the pile for Gabbiadini.

Meanwhile, Spurs are playing in the Champions League next season and need to bring in a striker to support Harry Kane, with Gabbiadini - who can play behind the striker or up front - could fit the bill. Not being first choice could be an issue for the forward, but being at a huge club with top European football may be just what he's looking for if he leaves Napolo.

Finally, West Ham are looking for a consistent goalscorer to lead the line, and with the move to the Olympic Stadium coupled with possible Europa League qualification, Slaven Bilic's men can offer first-team football and huge potential for growth.

The fee is big, but Gabbiadini would offer goals to a Premier League team - and whilst Stoke may be interested, West Ham and Spurs will be confident of leading the race for his signature this summer.
