The latest speculation has seen West Ham reportedly enter talks with Sassuolo for Italy striker Scamacca (Football Italia).

West Ham are said to have outbid European giants PSG for the Italian.

Hammers News was exclusively told by a Serie A expert in Italy that Scamacca sees West Ham as an intriguing move and feels he would be well suited to the Premier League.

Now there has been a massive Scamacca boost for West Ham after a major development in Italy as a move is made for his replacement.

Sassuolo are increasingly interested in signing Inter striker Andrea Pinamonti as a replacement for Scamacca according to Sportitalia and Sempre Inter.

The reports claim Sassuolo have made a move for Pinamonti as Scamacca “looks closer and closer to leaving for West Ham or PSG”.

Sportitalia report that the Neroverdi have come into the picture with Monza and Atalanta to sign the 23-year-old who they would see as an ideal replacement for Scamacca.

“Now, Sassuolo have very much entered the chase as they prepare for life without Scamacca as West Ham push to bring him to the Premier League, and Pinamonti would be seen as an ideal candidate for a like-for-like replacement in their attack,” Sportitalia and Sempre Inter report.

This is a major development in this particular transfer for West Ham.

The key to getting a deal done, though, will be agreeing personal terms with the Italy striker and PSG steering clear.
