West Ham Add Some Italian Flavour
West Ham have just completed the signing of their latest addition to the team: Italian striker Gianluca Scamacca, in a deal estimated to be worth £35.5 million, with add-ons.
The 23-year-old is moving across from the Italian football team, Sassuolo, on Wednesday, 27 July, and will be joining the England-based Hammers on a five-year-deal.
Scamacca was happy with the move, saying: “I feel like West Ham is the perfect team for me. They showed they really wanted me and when I spoke to the manager there was an instant understanding.”
David Moyes, head honcho of West Ham, added: “We’ve been looking to add more strength to our attacking options for a while, so we’re delighted to have got Gianluca in.
“He comes really well recommended – and we’re looking forward to working with him. He’s a young centre-forward with a really bright future ahead of him.”
The new No. 7 player was also considered by established clubs, Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) and Juventus.
Thankfully, Scamacca will not be going through the challenge alone, as he will be joined by three other new players: Rennes defender Nayef Aguerd, Swansea City midfielder Flynn Downes, and PSG goalkeeper Alphonse Areola.
