A reporter close to David Sullivan has named the fee that West Ham will sell Gianluca Scamacca for this summer.
Six Foot Two, a website with close links to David Sullivan, claim that Gianluca Scamacca could be sold by West Ham this summer, in order to boost the budget available to David Moyes.
The 24-year-old has been heavily linked with a return to Italy this summer, with the likes of AC Milan, Inter Milan and Juventus keen to sign him.
Scamacca joined the Hammers from Sassuolo in the summer of 2022 for around £30 million (Independent).
Thing haven’t gone very well at all for the Italian at the London Stadium though. His struggles are mostly down to Moyes’s refusal to set up his team in order to play to the striker’s strengths.
And it seems as though his days with the Hammers could be numbered…
Report names fee that West Ham will sell Gianluca Scamacca for this summer
According to Six Foot Two, the Hammers are prepared to sell Scamacca for around £35 million this summer.
That would represent a £5 million profit on the fee that we paid Sassuolo for his services one year ago.
I feel like selling the Italy international this summer would end up being a massive mistake from West Ham.
Scamacca is clearly an elite striker, and if Moyes sets up his team in a manner that allows the forward to flourish, he could be world-class for us.
We don’t want another Sebastien Haller situation whereby the Italian leaves and goes on to rip it up back in his homeland.
Gianluca Scamacca still has so much to offer West Ham as far as I’m concerned, and getting him back in tip top condition during pre-season should be one of Moyes’s main priorities.
Having said all of that, it wouldn’t surprise me one little bit if the Hammers owners decided to cash in on him this summer.
