West Ham United Forward Is On The Radar Of AC Milan: Should Moyes Cash In On Him?

A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent print edition, Gazzetta dello Sport revealed that West Ham United forward Gianluca Scamacca is on the radar of AC Milan this summer. It has been mentioned that the Hammers striker is gathering interest from Italy with the Milan club hoping to sign him in this off-season.

Scamacca’s Tough Season In English Football

Scamacca had a difficult campaign at the East London club in the previous campaign as he struggled to nail down a regular starting spot in David Moyes’ first XI. The Italian talent banged in eight goals in 27 matches for the Hammers last season across multiple competitions.

The 24-year-old proved his worth at times with his offensive contributions by averaging 1.9 shots and 0.8 key passes per 90 minutes in the Premier League. However, he was lackluster with his link-up play in the final third, as evidenced by his pass success rate of 66.9% in the English first division (stats via whoscored).

His current contract at the London Stadium will run out in the summer of 2027. However, things have not worked out for him at West Ham which could see David Moyes cash in on him in this off-season.

Should West Ham United Boss David Moyes Cash In On Scamacca?

Scamacca can use his strength to create space for himself to get a few strikes in on-target. He can be a streaky goal-scorer in the final third and has got the eye to set up some inviting chances for his teammates up top.

Standing at 1.95m, the Italian sensation is a towering presence inside the opponent’s penalty box. However, as mentioned earlier, he has to find a way to improve his passing accuracy in the opponent’s half.

At the moment, Scamacca is on the fringes of David Moyes‘ squad. Hence, it makes sense for West Ham to cash in on him during this summer transfer window.

At 24, Scamacca has got a very promising future ahead of him and would only get better with each season. However, Michail Antonio remains the London club’s first-choice forward.

Hence, the Hammers would be wise to sell Scamacca this year and use the money generated from his sale to bring in a capable replacement who would be capable of challenging for a first-team spot at the London Stadium in the future.
