Journalist ExWHUemployee has given West Ham United a boost to sign Gianluca Scamacca this summer as there is a desire to get him sold as soon as possible.
There have been reports suggesting that West Ham United have agreed on a deal in principle to sign Gianluca Scamacca this summer, as the Hammers look to increase their attacking options before the end of the summer transfer window.
Scamacca was in fine form for US Sassuolo last season, he featured 36 times in Serie A for the Italian side and he netted 16 times, which is what has caught the eye of several Premier League clubs such as West Ham.
With West Ham being interested in Scamacca, ExWHUemployee gave the Hammers a boost as Sassuolo are keen to get the deal over the line as soon as possible.
“As of this morning we were still talking to Sassuolo regarding the deal for Scamacca. It is felt that Sassuolo hope another club will enter the bidding having seen PSG look like they have moved onto Newcastle target Hugo Ekitike from Reimes.”
He later went on to say:
“There is a desire to try and get this deal over the line as soon as possible. Talks remain ongoing with Chelsea but they appear less willing to compromise than Sassuolo but this doesn’t mean we have given up. Chelsea are aware of what we are prepared to pay which is around £30m but they still want more time to assess the player,” Ex said.
Do you think Scamacca is worth £30 million?
TIF Thoughts on Ex’s comments…
West Ham only had one recognisable striker in their squad last season, and that was Michail Antonio, so Moyes might be keen to bring in another attacker this summer to provide competition for the Jamaican forward, and Scamacca could be a good option for the Scottish boss because of his impressive numbers last season.
However, Ex has claimed that the Hammers are only prepared to pay around £30 million for the Italian forward, so if another club comes in with a higher bid than that, then they might have to look for different forwards who fit within their price range.
