Serie A club Salernitana is reportedly interested in acquiring the services of Gianluca Scamacca, the talented West Ham star.
Scamacca officially joined West Ham United, a Premier League powerhouse, on the 26th of July, 2022. The Italian striker committed to a lucrative five-year contract, which includes the option to extend for an additional year. Sassuolo, his former club, received a hefty transfer fee of approximately £30.5 million for the transfer, with an additional £5 million possible through performance-related bonuses.
However, Scamacca has faced challenges with his fitness this season, resulting in him being limited to just 11 Premier League starts for the Hammers. Despite his setbacks, the 11-cap Italian international has demonstrated his potential on the field. His market value, as estimated by Transfermarkt.com, currently stands at an impressive 27 million euros.
According to reliable sources at Sky Sports, Salernitana is poised to make a move for Scamacca during the upcoming transfer window. The club has reportedly generated substantial funds through the impending sale of Boulaye Dia, who was on loan from Villarreal and had his buy-out clause triggered.
Following his injury, Scamacca returned to Italy to undergo rehabilitation and regain his fitness. Now, with Salernitana expressing their interest, the promising striker could find a new opportunity to showcase his skills and revitalize his career in his home country.
