Roma could get an involuntary assist from Milan in their pursuit of Gianluca Scamacca, as West Ham are interested in Divock Origi. The London outfit will be significantly more likely to let go of the Italian striker if they find a replacement, La Gazzetta dello Sport relays.
The Irons have been trying to land Armando Broja from Chelsea, but the negotiation slowed down due to his knee injury and some gap between the offer and the request. The Blues value the youngster €35M.
West Ham have reportedly opened talks for Origi as a fallback, and his arrival could unlock the Scamacca deal for Roma. The Giallorossi wish to come to terms on a loan with option to buy. Instead, the Premier League outfit demands a conditioned obligation to purchase the striker for €23/24M in a year.
The Milan reject has high wages, but coach David Moyes is a fan and believes he could bounce back in England. José Mourinho signaled he’d prefer to sign Alvaro Morata, but he’s older and would be more expensive considering his salary.
Our Take on West Ham, Origi, Roma, and Scamacca
A tough year in the Premier League doesn’t cancel what he accomplished in Serie A beforehand, and he still has a lot of potential. It’d be a great get if it went through for those terms.
