Southampton fans have been reacting to the news that striker Manolo Gabbiadini could be heading to Parma this summer, as was reported in Italian football site Calcio Mercato.
The Italian forward scored five and assisted five over the course of a season in which the Saints struggled and narrowly avoided relegation, but supporters have stuck behind their striker.
Southampton fans are worried about the prospect of one of their star players leaving the club, as Gabbiadini has gained a reputation for clinical finishing and a predatory instinct inside the box that is often difficult to find.
It is no surprise that newly-promoted Parma are interested in the 26-year-old who could be available for as little as £13million according to the report.
Southampton have become known as something of a selling club in recent years, and fans are clearly eager for this to change as Hughes looks to make his mark on the squad over the summer…
Keep the lad! Build the team around his strengths. Hes a class act for me just been miss managed since he arrived.

Don’t wanna see him go. Style of play and manager didn’t suit him last season. Give him another year before writing him off

I’m in the keeping gang too. We know he can do it, has the goal poachers instinct. If he wants to go then I’d try and get more than we paid for him
