Reports suggest that Gianluca Scamacca, the talented striker from West Ham, has caught the attention of Serie A side Salernitana. Scamacca officially became a part of the Premier League powerhouse, West Ham United, on the 26th of July, 2022. The Italian striker inked a highly lucrative five-year contract, with the possibility of extending for an extra year. His former club, Sassuolo, received a substantial transfer fee of around £30.5 million for the move, with the potential for an additional £5 million in performance-related bonuses.
Unfortunately, Scamacca has struggled with his fitness this season, resulting in him being limited to a mere 11 starts in the Premier League for West Ham. Nonetheless, the Italian international has exhibited his potential on the field. According to Transfermarkt.com, his market value currently stands at an impressive 27 million euros.
Sources from Sky Sports indicate that Salernitana is ready to pursue Scamacca in the upcoming transfer window. The club has reportedly amassed considerable funds through the imminent sale of Boulaye Dia, who had been on loan from Villarreal and had his buy-out clause activated.
Having recently returned to Italy for injury rehabilitation, Scamacca now has an opportunity to revitalize his career and showcase his skills in his home country, thanks to Salernitana’s expressed interest.
