In a recent report, The Sun stated that West Ham United are one step away from completing Gianluca Scamacca’s transfer from Sassuolo. It is understood that an offer worth £39.6million is said to have been accepted and the Hammers will be bringing him to the London Stadium ahead of the next campaign.
Scamacca’s Impressive Campaign For Sassuolo
Gianluca Scamacca has impressed in Serie A with some solid performances in the attacking end of the field. He has managed to find the back of the net on sixteen occasions in the last season.
The Rome-born sensation has been productive in the final third after averaging 2.2 shots, 0.7 key passes and 0.5 dribbles per game in the Italian first division. However, he has only been decent with his ball distribution completing 74% of his attempted passes in the Italian top-flight (stats via whoscored).
Good Move From Moyes To Bring Him To West Ham United?
The Italy international has been a solid presence in the striking position. At 1.96 m, his tall frame helps him dominate his opponents in aerial battles inside the penalty box. He excels at finishing in front of the goal. The Italian striker plays as a target man who can convert meaningful chances created for him by his teammates.
The East London club are in dire need of a striker and Scamacca fits the bill perfectly as he could rack up the goals for West Ham and also create a difference in big matches. The 23-year-old will grow over the coming seasons and could become one of the deadliest finishers in Europe.
The Italian hitman would be a brilliant addition to David Moyes’ frontline. He would add on to the attacking prowess and help the Hammers in their run for a top-tier finish in the next campaign.
