Ankit is a 24-year-old, aspiring to have his voice heard through what he writes. Charismatic and frankly moral, adhering to his principles and beliefs. Out to search for a purpose in life and yet to settle on that matter.

In a recent report from The Sun, it was mentioned that West Ham United have agreed on personal terms with Gianluca Scamacca of Sassuolo. The transfer fee involved is reportedly worth up to £30.5 million which will see the star striker move to East London.

Scamacca’s Impressive Run Of Form With Sassuolo

Gianluca Scamacca has produced some impressive displays on the attacking end of the field as he enjoyed a solid campaign in the Italian top flight. He has managed to find the back of the net on sixteen occasions for the Italian outfit across all competitions in his last campaign.

The Rome-born talent has performed consistently based on his average of 2.2 shots, 0.7 key passes and 0.5 dribbles per game in the Serie A. However, he needs to improve on his ball distribution after only completing 74% of his attempted passes in the Italian top-flight (stats via whoscored).

Does This End West Ham United’s Long Search For A Striker?

Scamacca is an out-and-out striker, he acts as the target man who can convert opportunities created by his teammates. Towering at 1.96 meters, he can make use of his tall and strong frame to find the back of the net on multiple occasions. He remains an attacking threat inside the penalty box.

David Moyes has been on the lookout for a striker who can take the burden off of Michael Antonio, who has been the sole striker for the Hammers. Scamacca’s admission gives West Ham a sigh of relief as having a few more attacking reinforcements would bring more competition and add more depth to the squad.

So the West Ham Boss would be wise to bring another forward to provide cover in the frontline and also bolster their attack in the hour of need. We could see another forward to compliment Scamacca’s goal poacher abilities.
