David Moyes’ West Ham filled the last European spot from England with a seventh place last season, but they may arguably have done higher if Michael Antonio had a partner, amongst other reasons.
There’s a run around currently for brand new signings, and David Moyes is clearly determined to get his hands on one. Reportedly, he has set sights on Sassuolo striker Gianluca Scamacca.
The Italian side has apparently demanded 42 million euros for Scalucca, while WestHam offered 8 million less of their first bid.
Clearly, the Hammers’ said offer wasn’t ok, as reports by the Day by day Express reveal that the 2 sides are in talks for a deal that’ll see the Italian international move to London this summer.
Gianluca is a talent value WestHam’s money and time, given his performance on this recently concluded season, where he netted 16 times in 36 appearances.
Whether the EPL side will part with the requested amount or their Italian counterparts will take a step back and reduce the asking price will only be clear after their reported talks.
Moyes has one other headache on his side apart from the value, though; PSG. The League One champions are also rumored to be serious about Gianluca, but apparently made a lower first offer.
Since Scamacca hasn’t revealed any interest in West Ham, Moyes must table something that’ll not only interest Sassuolo but additionally be enticing enough for the star.
