PSG put an end to West Ham hopes of signing star Gianluca Scamacca as David Moyes strikes out again

PSG have put an end to West Ham United’s hopes of signing star Gianluca Scamacca as David Moyes strikes out again.

West Ham’s 18-month pursuit of striker number 50 of the David Sullivan and David Gold era will continue for a time yet it seems.

That’s after West Ham’s interest in yet another alleged Moyes striker target bit the dust.

West Ham have missed out on countless signings down the years and Moyes seems to be struggling to snare the forward he so desperately needs this summer.

With Michail Antonio his only senior forward, the Hammers boss must get a deal done in this window.

Moyes admitted he thought West Ham had signed forward Luis Diaz from Porto in January only for Liverpool to swoop at the 11th hour (The Daily Mail).

West Ham have had to watch on as Diaz has taken the Premier League by storm with the Reds.

Then there was – among many others – Darwin Nunez at Benfica.

West Ham bid for the Uruguayan striker in January but left it too late to get a deal over the line (Sky Sports).

Now just one day into the summer window and Nunez has signed for Liverpool instead (The Daily Mail).

Another exciting striker to be linked with West Ham is Italian Gianluca Scamacca (The Sun).

Scamacca is one of the most talented players in the Serie A and seems almost certain to leave Sassuolo this summer.

PSG put an end to West Ham hopes of signing star Gianluca Scamacca as David Moyes strikes out again

But now PSG have put an end to West Ham hopes of signing star Scamacca as Moyes strikes out again.

Paris Saint-Germain have made a concrete approach for Scamacca according to reports in Italy (TuttoMercatoWeb and Get Italian Football News).

West Ham would struggle to rival a club like regular Champions League semi finalists PSG.

But any interest from Moyes and West Ham will surely be put to bed by the fact PSG’s contract offer for Scamacca trebles his wages too (TuttoMercatoWeb and Get Italian Football News).

West Ham have also been linked with forward Armando Broja.

Let’s hope Moyes finally strikes it lucky with that one.
