West Ham United and Tottenham have been told to pay at least £25 million for Gianluca Scamacca’s old teammate Hamed Junior Traore.
That’s according to a report from Milan Live who claim that Tottenham and Brighton are also keen to sign the exciting 22-year-old attacking midfielder.
It is suggested, however, that Sassuolo do not want to lose the Ivory Coast international in January, and would prefer to sell him in the summer of 2023.
West Ham boss David Moyes may well be keen to bolster his attacking midfield options at the London Stadium.
It has been clear that West Ham have really missed Lucas Paqueta during his recent absence. More competition in that particular area could be crucial for the Hammers.
And it seems as though Moyes will have a good chance to bring in some very strong competition and cover for Paqueta, for a very reasonable price indeed…
West Ham told fee needed for Hamed Junior Traore
According to Milan Live, West Ham will have to pay £25 million if we want to sign the Sassuolo ace next summer.
The Hammers will allegedly face competition from the likes of Tottenham and Brighton for his signature, however.
West Ham may well be favourites though, with Traore’s former teammate Gianluca Scamacca now at the London Stadium.
I think that the Sassuolo star would be an exceptional addition for the Hammers next summer.
The Ivorian ace bagged eight goals and four assists in 32 games for Sassuolo last season (Transfermarkt).
He can play as a left winger as well as in the number 10 role.
Traore possesses exceptional technique and impressive pace. He is still very raw, but he will improve massively and refine as a player as time goes on.
For £25 million, West Ham really can’t go wrong by signing Hamed Junior Traore in the summer.
And reuniting him with Scamacca may end up being masterstroke by David Moyes.
