Gianluca Scamacca and his agents are understood to ne meeting West Ham manager and club officials next week as speculation spreads on the player’s future.

The Italian striker is currently in Australia and crashed home a glorious penalty in the pre-season exhibition game against Perth Glory.

Scamacca set for high level talks

The Hammers went on to win the game 6-2 with Scamacca leaving the action at half time but it remains to be seen what will be the outcome of any meeting when he returns to the UK.

It is well known that the player changed his agents recently and last week to the Italian media outlet Gazetta that he believes his game would improved under Jose Mourinho at Rome.

Scamacca keen to moveĀ 

And we were told tonight by a source close to the player that he is indeed keen to move on but as yet there have been no suitable offers.

He explained: ” There have been no offers of making a move permanent. At the moment only loans have been offered and that is not acceptable to West Ham.”

It’s a quote that can be confirmed by ourselves who were told by a highly places London Stadium, source a couple of weeks ago: “That won’t happen. How could we find a loan player was good as him!”

    I keep going back to the decision to keep Moyes. I firmly believe if we had a manager that wud get the best out of these players we would not see so many players wanting out. A crazy decision to retain him but the consequences will be seen very soon. I hope we keep him but under no circumstances should he be allowed to leave on a loan. I would be looking for a fee in the region of 50m for him as he us quality.
