Manolo Gabbiadini says he arrives at Southampton with great ambition for the club.
The striker completed a deadline-day switch to St Mary’s Stadium, joining on a four-and-a-half-year contract from Napoli.
Italy international Gabbiadini said: "I come here with a great ambition as a person, as a player and for the squad. I will do my best for the team and I don't want to disappoint anybody. I want to play to the best of my abilities.
“I am very, very happy. It was a month that I have been waiting for this moment to arrive and I can't wait to start.
“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 25-year-old forward explained how he has been extremely impressed by what he has seen from the club so far.
"The facilities that I have seen here are an incredible level – top-level standards even for Serie A, to be honest,” he said.
“These are the sort of facilities that make you want to come here and perform as soon as possible.”
