West Ham United agree deal to sign Gianluca Scamacca according to well-respected journalist Fabrizio Romano.
Hammer boss David Moyes is desperate to bring a top-class striker to the London Stadium this summer.

And it seems as though he finally has his man.
Gianluca Scamacca is someone who has been persistently linked with a move to West Ham over the past couple of months.
The Italian made a name for himself in Serie A last season and he seemingly will be strutting his stuff in the Premier League next term…
Fabrizio Romano claims West Ham agree Scamacca deal
The Italian journalist has confirmed that the Hammers have now agreed to a fee with Sassuolo for the 23-year-old striker:
After 18 long months, Michail Antonio will now have some proper competition.
We think that the Italy international will be a sensational addition for the Hammers.
The 23-year-old is an absolute unit. He stands at 6ft 5in tall but don’t let that fool you, he’s so much more than a bog-standard target man.
Sempre Inter recently described the towering striker as an ‘unbelievable’ player.
He would certainly provide stiff competition for Michail Antonio at the London Stadium.
Scamacca possesses exceptional technique and has one of the most ferocious shots in the game at his disposal.
The 23-year-old bagged 16 goals in 36 Serie A appearances for Sassuolo this season (Transfermarkt). He really is a very good all-round striker.
The Italian should suit our playing style perfectly.
Fabrizio Romano says that an agreement is fully in place for West Ham to sign Scamacca. So it surely won’t be too long before we see the Italian in the famous Claret and Blue.
