Report: Irons make bid for £42.2m ace

West Ham want to do a deal to sign Sassuolo striker Gianluca Scamacca, according to a report from Gianluca Di Marzio.

The striker was in exceptional form last season, scoring 16 goals in 36 outings in Serie A.

He has also attracted interest from French giants PSG, who are aiming to reinforce their strikeforce this summer.

They have yet to meet Sassuolo’s asking price, however, as they are asking for a fee in the region of €50m, or £42.2m.

As a result, the Irons are said to be involved in the race to secure his signature and a bid has already been tabled, worth €40m, or £33.7m.

That does not meet Sassuolo’s asking price, either, and, as a result, there remains a race to secure his signature.

PSG are also lurking, though, and it may be that it comes down to which club is willing to go the highest; Sassuolo are under little pressure to sell, as his contract runs until 2026.

  1. Let’s see what happens, if PSG have made a bid it’s hard to believe the player who has previously said he doesn’t want to leave Italy is going to join us, this sounds like classic GSB smoke screens bid for a player you know you won’t sign.

  2. West Ham Fan No 32 you are living in the past regarding GSB and transfer rumours. If you read the report the comment comes from an Italian source. C&H are just reporting it.

    • ‘living in the past’…?
      Less than 6 months ago, there were reliable reports of West Ham making last minute bids £50mil.+ on Kalvin Phillips and Raphinha, when it was highly likely Leeds would not be selling at any price. Reported bids on countless players this summer who were never going to sign for West Ham ie Eriksen, Onana, Luis Diaz, Darwin Nunez, Ekitike etc etc
