Hammers could lose £10 million on Scamacca


Inter Milan are reported to be considering raising their bid for Gianluca Scamacca to £21.5million plus add-ons – such is their determination to sign the striker.

The responsible London Evening Standard explains that the Hanmmers have already turned down an opening £20m bid for a player who we bought for £30.5m for last summer.

The 24-year-old is ready to return to Italy, with Inter confident of signing him ahead of Roma and should that prove to be the case it means that a David Moyes signing has lost the club around £10 million.

Add that to the £15 million we are set to lose of Nikola Vlasic and the business end of Hammers signings is looking very bad indeed.

After an encouraging start to last season, Scamacca struggled to make an impact and eventually saw his season curtailed by knee surgery. He finished his first campaign in England with just eight goals in 27 games last season.

    Sell and buy back in 12 months with new manager and system.

    Haller is a superstar in other teams, Scamacca is a quality striker, our manager is stuck in the 1980’s with his approach to football. Stop selling at a loss and pay Moyes off.

    when i see spurs getting 30 million for an average Hjoberg and Brighton getting 30 for 3rd choice keeper Sanches, it’s clear sullivan isn’t as good a businessman as he thinks. Will be a joke letting him go just to satisfy a manager who will be gone soon, especially at this price
