OFFICIAL: West Ham sign Gianluca Scamacca

Premier League side West Ham have officially confirmed the signing of Italy international and Sassuolo striker Gianluca Scamacca. The 23-year-old underwent his club medical on Monday and has now been announced as player via a statement on the clubs official website:

West Ham United is delighted to announce the signing of Italy international centre-forward Gianluca Scamacca.

The 23-year-old joins the Hammers on a five-year contract, with an option to extend for a further year, for an undisclosed fee from Serie A club Sassuolo.

A towering presence at 6’5 and capable of scoring all types of goals, Scamacca is one of Europe’s top young strikers, having scored 16 Serie A goals last season and started twice for Italy in the UEFA Nations League in June.

West Ham fought off interest from a host of top clubs to complete a deal for the Rome-born player, who has been capped seven times and is considered his country’s current and future No9.

Scamacca becomes the latest young, hungry and ambitious player to join David Moyes’ squad, who will again compete in four competitions this season, and is eager to take his game to a new level in the Claret and Blue of West Ham.
