Roma Handed Gianluca Scamacca Transfer Boost

Divock Origi’s potential move to West Ham could trigger a chain reaction that might help Roma complete their long-standing pursuit of Gianluca Scamacca. As per Gazzetta dello Sport, David Moyes hold the out-of-favor Milan striker in high esteem and is looking to take him back to the Premier League.

Origi joined Milan from Liverpool last summer. However, his career at San Siro never took off as the Rossoneri look to offload him in the coming weeks. West Ham could come to the Belgian’s rescue to address their scoring woes. Moyes keeps him in high regard and is ready to sacrifice Roma target Scamacca to get the deal over the line.

Scamacca has no future in London despite moving to West Ham for £30.5 million last summer. The ex-Sassulo marksman struggled for regular first-team football in his first Premier League season. As such, he wants to return to Serie A, with Roma waiting in the wings. But the financial aspect has been a stumbling block thus far.

Roma hoped to land the 24-year-old on loan with an option to buy. Unfortunately, West Ham prefer an immediate sale. The Hammers are eager to recoup their investment. That has delayed Scamacca’s return to his boyhood club. Yet Origi could help Jose Mourinho overcome that obstacle.

Atletico Madrid’s unwanted man Alvaro Morata is a contingency plan if Roma fail to sign Scamacca. Courted by Inter and Juventus as well, the Spaniard may soon switch back to Serie A, where he had two decent separate spells at the Allianz Stadium.
