Scamacca to join West Ham
West Ham will sign Sassuolo striker Gianluca Scamacca for a fee of around 38 million euros this coming week, with the Italian international set to sign a long-term contract with the Hammers. West Ham have been looking for a new striker to add to their squad as Michail Antonio appeared to be struggling towards to end of last campaign.
This will be a huge coup for West Ham, after the 23-year-old bagged 16 goals in 36 Serie A games last season, making the player one of the most in demand strikers in Europe.
A deal for Chelsea striker Armando Broja fell through last week after the Irons grew increasingly frustrated at a perceived lack of progress being made in negotiations with the Stamford Bridge outfit.
Sassuolo have had no option but to let Scamacca leave, after the player handed in a transfer request last week. The Italian international striker, has 7 caps for his country but has yet to score his first goal.
It is understood that West Ham have beaten AC Milan and Genoa to the signing of Scamacca.
