Southampton have signed striker Manolo Gabbiadini from Napoli in a deal worth a reported £17million.

The Italian forward has four-and-a-half-year contract at St Mary's.

I am very, very happy. Since I was a kid, one of my dreams was to perform in one of the biggest leagues in the world, so now that it's happening I can't wait to start playing.

The facilities that I have seen here are an incredible level – top-level standards even for Serie A. These are the sort of facilities that make you want to come here and perform as soon as possible.

– Marco Gabbiadini
