West Ham United have allegedly made contact with Sassuolo about signing Giacomo Raspadori AND Gianluca Scamacca this summer.
That’s according to a report from 90 Min who claim that the Hammers are great admirers of the Italian attacking duo.
David Moyes will be desperate to bolster his attacking ranks at the London Stadium this summer.
The Scot desperately needs to bring in some quality competition and cover for Michail Antonio.
The 32-year-old has been West Ham’s only central striking option for 18 months now and that quite simply isn’t acceptable for a club with supposed ambitions of challenging for honours both domestically and on the continent.
It seems as though Moyes is intent on changing all of that this summer, however…
West Ham have made contact with Sassuolo about signing attacking duo
The Hammers are keen to bring Giacomo Raspadori AND Gianluca Scamacca to the London Stadium this summer.
Singing both players or even one of them would be a huge statement of intent from West Ham.
Raspadori would be an incredibly strong addition for West Ham in my opinion and he is allegedly available for around £26 million (Calciomercato).
The 22-year-old bagged 10 goals and six assists in 36 Serie A games for Sassuolo last season (Transfermarkt).
Those goal involvements came mostly when operating in the number 10 role but he played all across the front-line at different times throughout the season.
Raspadori has plenty of pace, is highly energetic and has a keen eye for goal as well as a killer pass. Raspadori said in September that he is very much like Sergio Aguero in playing style.
West Ham have made contact with another Sassuolo player as well!
Scamacca would be a stunning addition for West Ham.
The 23-year-old could be available for around £34 million this summer (Alfredo Pedulla).
He literally would be the perfect striker signing for David Moyes.
The 23-year-old is an absolute unit. He stands at 6ft 5in tall but don’t let that fool you, he’s so much more than a bog-standard target man.
Sempre Inter recently described the towering striker as an ‘unbelievable’ player. Scamacca possesses exceptional technique and has one of the most ferocious shots in the game at his disposal.
Scamacca bagged 16 goals in 36 Serie A appearances for Sassuolo last season (Transfermarkt).
The Italian hitman possesses everything that David Moyes looks for in a striker.
And with the news that West Ham have made contact with Sassuolo about signing the Italian duo, we could be in for a seriously exciting summer transfer window.
