Everton are interested in signing Manolo Gabbiadini from Napoli in the summer transfer window, according to Alfredopedulla.com.

It has been reported that Everton will make a bid of £21.65 million (€25m) for the 24-year-old striker in the coming days.

The Toffees are not the only Premier League club who have been linked with a move for the Italy international this summer.

CalcioMercato recently claimed West Ham United’s interest in Gabbiadini (click here to read more), while TuttoMercatoWeb have credited Southampton with interest in the former Atalanta striker (click here to read more).

Gabbiadini has been on the books of Napoli since January 2015 and has a contract with the Italian club until June 2019, according to Transfermarkt.co.uk.

The Italian striker scored five goals and created 11 chances in 23 Serie A appearances for Napoli last season.

In six Europa League matches, the 24-year-old scored four goals and created five chances.

Napoli finished second in Serie A last season and will be aiming to win the title during the 2016-17 campaign. The Naples-based outfit will also feature in the group stage of the Champions League this season.

Everton are not in the Champions League and are not Premier League title challengers, and it would be hard for the Toffees to convince Gabbiadini to leave Napoli for Merseyside before the end of the summer transfer window.
