West Ham: Irons bid ‘more than’ £34million for Gianluca Scamacca

West Ham: Irons bid ‘more than’ £34million for Gianluca Scamacca -Premier League News

West Ham United have reportedly made an offer to sign Sassuolo striker Gianluca Scamacca, according to Sky Sports

The lowdown: Opening offer

Coming off an impressive Italian top-flight campaign, the 23-year-old senior Italy international has attracted the attention of many suitors, including Newcastle United, Paris Saint-Germain and of course, West Ham.

The Hammers have recently stepped up their pursuit of Scamacca and reportedly saw a £28million bid rebuffed by the Serie A outfit as they continue to hold out for a fee in the region of £42.6million.

Now a fresh report has emerged claiming that the east Londoners have made a fresh attempt to strike a deal for the frontman…

The latest: New bid

As per Sky Sports, West Ham are believed to have made a bid of ‘more than’ £34million for the seven-cap star, which could make him their second most expensive signing ever.

It’s claimed ‘positive discussions are ongoing between the clubs’ as David Moyes attempts to strengthen the attacking department at the London Stadium accordingly.

The report also states that the Irons also ‘remain interested’ in Chelsea striker Armando Broja and are ‘awaiting a response’ from Lille regarding Amadou Onana.

The verdict: Positive signs

As it was confirmed that West Ham missed out on the capture of Jesse Lingard after the attacking midfielder joined Nottingham Forest on a one-year deal, another seemingly top target fell by the wayside.

Nonetheless, the Hammers have wasted no time in shaking off the disappointment and instead pressed ahead with a pursuit for the giant 6 foot 5 former PSV Eindhoven frontman who was dubbed ‘deadly’ by football talent scout Jacek Kulig and a ‘revelation‘ by journalist Zach Lowy for his U20 World Cup form.

Last season, Scamacca scored 16 times in 36 Serie A outings, earning an impressive 7.03 Sofascore rating whilst winning 3.1 duels and taking 2.2 shots on average per game – highlighting battling qualities as well as a sharp eye for goal that make him ideally suited to the Irons’ style.

Having predominantly operated as the figurehead of a four-pronged attack for Sassuolo, Scamacca should fit seamlessly into the plans in east London as an alternative option to Michail Antonio.

Sharing a close stylistic likeness with such highly regarded centre-forwards as Jamie Vardy, Victor Osimhen and Tammy Abraham (Fbref), Moyes should be pushing GSB to do all it takes to bring the Italian to Rush Green this summer.
