Striker bid confirmed

Sassuolo have confirmed that West Ham have made an offer for Gianluca Scamacca.

The Hammers have opened talks with the Italian club over a deal to sign the striker as David Moyes casts his net far and wide for new recruits.

Scamacca is seen as a potential alternative target to Armando Broja, with Chelsea dragging their feet over his potential exit.

PSG are also interested in a deal to sign Scamacca, who was in excellent form for Sassuolo last season.

He scored 16 goals in 38 games in all competitions and the Italian club’s CEO Giovanni Carnevali has now confirmed that there are two bids on the table for the centre-forward, including one from the Irons.

As quoted by the Evening Standard, he said: “West Ham are offering €40m for Scamacca and Paris Saint-Germain offering €35m.

“There are also some add-ons as difference. We don’t need to sell, so we will see – there’s no agreement with any club now.”

The Hammers have made three permanent signings thus far this summer, bringing in Nayef Aguerd, Alphonse Areola, and Flynn Downes, and are now attempting to bring in depth up front.
