Wolfsburg have joined West ham in the hunt for Napoli striker Manolo Gabbiadini, according to a report.
Sky Italy journalist Gianluca Di Marzio has claimed on his website that the Serie A club are willing to listen to bids for the forward.
It is said the Serie A club value Gabbiadini at the £19million mark amid interest from Tottenham and Stoke.
The Italy international is believed to be open to a move away from the Italian outfit after he spent much of the 2015-16 season on the bench and featured in just 22 league games all season.
Napoli are close to securing a replacement as they close in on the signing of Ajax striker Arkadiusz Milik.

Gabbiadini was left out of Italy’s provisional squad for Euro 2016 by Antonio Conte following his season on the fringes.
The Italian international has over three years remaining on his contract and it is believed that Napoli will wait on sanctioning the player’s exit until the future of superstar Gonzalo Higuain is more clear.
West Ham have publicly made it clear they are in the market for at least one A-list forward this summer and have registered their interest in the likes of Alexandre Lacazette, Michy Batshuayi, Christian Benteke and Simone Zaza.
