Gianluca Scamacca looks set to leave West Ham United after just one year.
According to Italian publication Di Marzio, “AS Roma are working to finalize an agreement with West Ham. The player is in favor of a move to Roma. However, AC Milan are also monitoring his situation and would be a good destination for him.”
메이저사이트 He is a semi-regular resource from Italy. At 6-foot-5, he has solid physicality, but he also has good fundamentals and fluid movement, which has led to comparisons to Zlatan Ibrahimovic. His ability to play in the post and his decisiveness in the box are his biggest strengths.
He came up through the ranks at Dutch ‘elite’ side PSV Eindhoven. He made his senior debut in the 2016-17 season, but was unable to establish himself and headed to Italian Serie A side Sassuolo. Due to his young age, he spent several loan spells before breaking through in 2019-20 with Ascoli Calcio, where he played his first full season.
In the 2020-21 season, he moved to Genoa on loan. For the first time in his career, he played a full season in Serie A. In 29 appearances, including cup competitions, he scored 12 goals and provided two assists.
This performance earned him a regular spot in the Sassuolo lineup. In 36 league appearances in the 2021-22 season, he scored 16 goals, good for sixth on the team’s scoring list. That was more than the likes of Marko Arnautovic, Edin Dzeko, and Victor Osimhen, and he was the team’s top scorer.
This led to a move to England. At the time, West Ham thought so highly of his abilities that they paid a hefty €36 million to bring him to the club, which is now the club’s fourth most expensive transfer of all time.
So much was expected of him. But it ended in failure. He made his debut against Wolverhampton Wanderers in the ninth round, scoring his first goal of the season. Back-to-back goals against Fulham in round 10 cemented his place in the starting lineup 메이저도메인.
But that was it. Scaramucca failed to live up to fans’ expectations in the second half of the season with a string of poor performances. In the second half of the season, he suffered a knee injury that ruled him out for the season, leaving him with a meager 8 goals in 27 games, including cup competitions.
After just one season, he was declared a ‘clearance target’. West Ham have put him up for sale, and Italian Serie A clubs such as Roma and AC Milan are keen on him.
