Sean Dyche has urged the West Ham United fans to be patient with big money summer signing Gianluca Scamacca.

David Moyes brought the Italy international to the London Stadium from Sassuolo for £35 million in the summer transfer window (Sky Sports).

Scamacca has already scored six goals for the Hammers, but only two of those have come in the Premier League.

The 23-year-old has shown us glimpses of his undoubted ability, although there are definitely aspects of his game that he needs to improve.

Scamacca is on an entirely different level to Michail Antonio, that’s clear and obvious to see.

The challenge for him now will be to start scoring on a consistent basis though…

Sean Dyche has warning for West Ham fans about Scamacca

The Italian hitman needs to be given time to adapt to English football according to Dyche.

The ex-Burnley boss told Sky Sports (Monday October 24th, 7:51pm):

He’s a new one to me to be honest, I’ve only seen him this season. He’s a big physical presence, a greta goal against Wolves and scoring in Europe. He’s one that will grow into things at West Ham I would imagine.

Dyche then urged the West Ham fans to be patient with the Italian…

It takes time (adjusting to the Premier League). The top players take time. I remember when De Bruyne going over to Man City for £50 million and he didn’t play every week. The Premier League is different, there’s no two ways about it, we had that with Maxwel Cornet. The pace, the physicality, the feel is different.

Dyche is spot on.

The West Ham fans need to give Scamacca time to fully settle into life in East London and adjust to the frenetic pace of Premier League football.

The Italian has already shown us what he’s capable of in spurts.

Now the challenge for Gianluca Scamacca will be to produce the goods on a consistent basis for West Ham.

We think that he’ll end up being a hero in the Claret and Blue.
