Milan Propose Long-Shot Swap Deal to Sign Scamacca

Milan tried to kill two birds with one stone by offering Divock Origi to West Ham for Gianluca Scamacca. However, the suggestion doesn’t seem viable. The Belgian, who has a long-term contract, doesn’t want to leave. Moreover, the Irons plan to recoup at least part of their investment for the ex-Sassuolo striker, SportMediaset informs.

The English side spent €40M last summer. The best they could agree to is a season-long loan with an obligation to buy. He struggled to stay healthy and wasn’t too effective in his first Premier League season. He notched 8 goals in 27 appearances.

Milan face further difficulties in their attempt to sign Scamacca because he has given his preference to Roma. He played in the Italian capital when he was a youngster and is a big fan of José Mourinho. But the Giallorossi tendered just a temporary spell with an option to redeem him.

The other Rossoneri targets for the frontline are Boulaye Dia and Alvaro Morata. The former has a €25M release clause.

Our Take on Milan and Scamacca

He’s a very strong option, but he won’t come cheap, at least early in the window. The Salernitana star is a steal at those numbers, but he’s more of a second-striker than a no.9. Instead, they need somebody to deputize and then succeed Oliver Giroud.
