Report: Striker makes Hammers call

Sassuolo striker Gianluca Scamacca has agreed to join West Ham, according to a report from Alfredo Pedulla.

The Hammers are interested in doing a deal to sign the striker after an impressive season in Serie A.

He scored 16 goals last season and the new report claims Scamacca has agreed to the move in principle.

Sassuolo are willing to take an offer worth €40m (£33.9m) plus an extra €7m (£5.9m) in add-ons.

The Hammers are now said to be working on the deal with the Italian club and the player’s agent, as they attempt to get it over the line.

The club do hold an interest in signing Scamacca, as we confirmed last week, and there remains interest in Chelsea’s Armando Broja.

It remains to be seen if the Hammers try to buy both, but it appears that things are moving in the right direction when it comes to the Sassuolo striker.

  1. hope were not building up our hopes of this signing, only for moyes to say in 2 days time, its not my choice of signing, weve had enough of that recently. lol.

  2. Could not agree more.

  3. I agree with Paul. I much prefer Scamacca to Broja. I hope this isn’t just a ploy to get Chelsea to the table. I just don’t get what people see in Broja, at all.
    Scamacca seems to be by far the higher quality player. At only 23 if he does carry on his progression his value will only increase. Fingers cross they actually get this one over the line and completed. To many times we hesitate, change our minds or just mess it up.

  4. This rumour predates the one where the chairman of Sassuolo said that there are two offers but not that he had accepted one, so I suspect as usual more media speculation.

    Hopefully we can do a deal because Broja is looking unlikely as is Lingard.

    • Unfortunately Lingard has taken Moyes for a Mug. His strung Moyes along for so long, its embarrassing. We should have moved on a long long time ago!
