On 20 July 2012, Gazzaniga signed a four-year deal with newly promoted Premier League side Southampton, with Tommy Forecast going to Gillingham on loan as part of the deal.

Gazzaniga described the move as “a crazy situation” but said it was like “a dream”.

Gazzaniga made his debut on 28 August in a 4–1 victory against Stevenage in the second round of the League Cup.

He made his league debut almost a month later, on 22 September in a 4–1 win against Aston Villa.

Gazzaniga was used as cover for first choice keepers Kelvin Davis, Artur Boruc and Fraser Forster, making only two appearances in 2014–15.

Gazzaniga started his first match of 2015–16 on 12 December 2015 in a 1–0 defeat at Crystal Palace.
