Over the past couple of weeks, there has been intense speculation over the future of Gianluca Scamacca at Sassuolo.
According to multiple reports emanating from England, Tottenham are keen to land Sassuolo striker Gianluca Scamacca.
The Italy international joined Sassuolo from Jong PSV for a fee in the region of 500,000 euros in January 2017. His contract expires in the summer of 2025.
The striker banged in 6 goals in 18 matches this season across all fronts showcasing just how influential he has been in the final third.
The 22-year-old has been touted as one of the brightest young prospects in Italy. As a member of Italy national football team, Scamacca won two caps.
His impressive performances this season have apparently caught the eye of some of Europe’s big clubs.
Tottenham have earmarked Sassuolo striker as their target, with Antonio Conte being a ‘huge admirer’ of the player. The Spurs have built a reputation for recruiting young talent from within Europe, predominantly targeting those with sell-on value and immense potential.
Conte is a long term admirer of Scamacca and believes he can get the most out of the Italy international.
Tottenham will have funds to spend in the market and it will be interesting to see how they approach the winter transfer window.
The former Jong PSV man provides a unique blend between a classic center-forward and the modern striker.
According to the report, “Tottenham are eyeing Sassuolo striker Gianluca Scamacca. Calciomercato.com says Sassuolo striker Scamacca is now a target for Spurs and seen as an alternative to Fiorentina’s Dusan Vlahovic by managing director of football Fabio Paratici. The 22-year-old has scored five goals in 17 appearances so far in the Serie A this season, though he has only started eight games. Scamacca is a physical, boisterous centre forward who can play as a lone striker, in a two-man front partnership or even as a makeshift winger if needs must. Sassuolo are willing to accept an offer between £17m-£21m.”
