Gianluca Scamacca, the Sassuolo striker West Ham has agreed to pay £35.5 million for, is currently negotiating personal terms with the Hammers. West Ham has agreed to pay £30.5 million for the 23-year-old forward
who scored 16 goals in 36 Serie A games last season for the Italian side. A further £5 million is expected to be added to the initial payment. Sassuolo has a 10% sell-on clause in the transaction.
Chelsea striker Armando Borja is also a target for West Ham, and the two sides are still in contact. Both Borja and Scamacca might be signed, although that seems increasingly unlikely.
Amadou Onana’s probable transfer to the Hammers is also pending a reaction from Lille. Meanwhile, Nottingham Forest has signed free agent Jesse Lingard to a one-year contract, ruling out a move to West Ham United.
Lingard turned down an offer from West Ham, who were happy with their offer, and instead chose to join the freshly promoted club.
With the additions of Nayef Aguerd from Rennes for £30m and Alphonse Areola from Paris Saint-Germain for £7.75m after a good loan spell last season, West Ham has made three acquisitions this summer.
After a season in which West Ham is expected to improve in the Premier League and compete in the Europa League, manager David Moyes is aiming to strengthen his squad.
It’s simple to see why Gianluca Scamacca is in such high demand. Despite his diminutive stature, he is an Italy international striker who scored 16 goals in Serie A last season. The only thing surprising about his rise to power is the path he chose to get there.
Sciacca, a 23-year-old sensation and late bloomer, is a paradox. His potential was recognized at just 15 years old, and he made two trips to the Netherlands as a youngster in quest of new opportunities. Even at the age of 21, he was still playing on loan for Ascoli in Serie B.
As a result of his stellar performances for Sassuolo, he is now widely considered to be Italy’s best striker and a man who may cost a sum in excess of £40 million. Those dancing feet of the enormous guy.
He represented Italy in the 2015 and 2016 UEFA European Under-17 Championships as a member of the national team. His first appearance for the Italy U21 squad came in a friendly match against Portugal on May 25, 2018, in which the team lost 3–2.
He represented Italy U19 in the 2018 UEFA European Under-19 Championship, where he scored twice, including the game-winning goal in extra time of Italy’s 4–3 loss to Portugal in the final.
During the 2019 FIFA U-20 World Cup, he was part of the Italy U20 team, which finished fourth. On September 6, 2019, he scored his first goal for the Italy U21 squad in a 4–0 win over Moldova.
The first time he was called up to the senior Italy squad was in September of 2021 for the team’s FIFA World Cup qualifiers for 2022. In a 5–0 home triumph over Lithuania on September 8, he made his senior debut, replacing Federico Bernardeschi in the second half.
