Hammers admit: “Manager wants Scamacca out”


West Ham striker Gianluca Scamacca is no longer interested in playing for the club.

And that comes directly from the inside of the London Stadium via our top placed source with the player either right on the brink of, or has been sold already been sold to to Serie A outfit Atalanta.

We ,earned late last night and reported that to be the case and within the last few minutes we have learned why it will or has already happened at a price of around €24 million.

Scamacca doesn’t want to play for Hammers

Scamacca doesn’t want to play for us

Our source put it entirely frankly revealing exclusively to us: “He doesn’t want to play for us and manager wants him out of the club.”

So there we have it!

Scamacca having played no more than half a season for the Hammer having been bought at a cost of €31 million is on his way at a €7 million loss to the club.

That comes on top of the deficit of around £15 million we have or will suffer on Nikola Vlasic should he finally join Torino where he was on loan last season.

    Surprised anyone with a little savy would.make a statement like that – for me not clued into what is going on. There us no issue with the club. The reason he is leaving like Haller etc is because of the manager, nothing to do with the club. Moyes is and continues to be the problem. I worry when I see these statements from the club which suggest they are oblivious to the damage Moyes is doing.

    It’s a joke Scamacca would have been good if Moyes played to his strengths rather then be overly defensive !

    Your sources are usually good so it’s virtually done I reckon. The manager wants him gone is another clue – Moyes is never that decisive, it must have happened! What an indictment of Moyes the manager!! He signed him, he didn’t know how best to play him, so he didn’t, and now he’s sold at a 20% loss after one non-existent season, insisting he wants him gone!! 60 years I’ve followed this club, never felt so embarrassed, not even Avram made me feel this bad.
