West Ham United are eyeing up a swap deal involving one of our most expensive ever signings this summer.

David Moyes has a really important summer transfer window lying ahead of him, and he must get his signings absolutely spot on.

Gianluca Scamacca is one of those players who could be set to leave the London Stadium, according to various reports.

The Hammers’ fourth most expensive signing of all-time is being heavily linked with a return to Italy at the end of this season.

And it seems as though Moyes is eyeing a deal to move the 24-year-old on, whilst bringing in another striker as part of the deal…

West Ham eyeing summer striker swap deal

InterLive.it claim that Salernitana’s on loans striker Boulaye Dia could be offered to the Hammers in exchange for Scamacca.

The 26-year-old hitman has been on West Ham’s radar for quite some time now.

I believe that Dia would be a good signing for the Hammers. However, we certainly shouldn’t be swapping him for Scamacca.

I rate the 24-year-old Italian striker every highly indeed and I’m positive he will come good if Moyes tweaks his tactics.

He is incredibly gifted from a technical perspective, is a very good finisher and is so good at holding the ball up with his back to goal. He just needs more players in and around him in order to flourish and has too often been isolated up front on his own this season.

I would like the Hammers to sign Boulaye Dia outright as a long-term replacement for Michail Antonio this summer.

As mentioned earlier though, West Ham should not even be considering a swap deal involving the Senegal international and Scamacca.

If we allow the Italian to leave in exchange for Dia, it would be a disastrous move as far as I’m concerned.
