West Ham United could make a move to sign Davide Frattesi, the ex-teammate of Gianluca Scamacca, in January.
That’s according to a report from TuttoMercatoWeb who claim that the Hammers could raid Sassuolo for a second time after signing Scamacca in the summer.

David Moyes brought the 23-year-old striker to the London Stadium for around £35.5 million in July (Sky Sports).
Scamacca has found the going tough during his early days with West Ham but in fairness to him, Moyes hasn’t started him regularly in the Premier League.
The Italian will undoubtedly come good, and it seems as though Moyes is keen to reunite the towering hitman with one of his old mates…
West Ham eyeing ex-Gianluca Scamacca partner Davide Frattesi
The Sassuolo forward is on the Hammers’ radar ahead of the January transfer window according to a report from TuttoMercatoWeb.
We think that the 23-year-old would be a sensational addition for West Ham.
The Hammers allegedly made a £20 million move to sign Frattesi last season.
He is an orthodox central midfielder by trade but he can also operate in the number 10 position.
The 23-year-old bagged four goals and three assists in 36 Serie A appearances for Sassuolo last season (Who Scored).
During those outings, Frattesi averaged 1.4 tackles, one interception and 1.5 clearances per game (Who Scored).
The Italian ace made 33.8 passes on average per match and recorded an impressive 83.4% completion rate (Who Scored).
Frattesi is an incredibly good footballer with impressive technical ability, a fine engine and an attitude of the very highest level.
We would love to see the Sassuolo ace reunited with Gianluca Scamacca at West Ham.
Frattesi has spoken in the past about his close friendship with Scamacca, and has highlighted how he’s followed the towering striker everywhere (Tribal Football).
A familiar face might help get the best out of the striker. Frattesi is a seriously good footballer as well and would help take the Hammers’ play through the middle to another level entirely.
