Gianluca Scamacca has been linked to every top Serie A team as his first season at West Ham hasn’t gone particularly well, but Roma gained some separation over the other suitors in the last few days. The striker, who was born and raised in the Italian capital, would be glad to join them, Corriere dello Sport informs.
The Giallorossi are in the market for a new marksman, having lost Tammy Abraham for multiple months. The Italian forward finished the campaign on the mend due to a meniscus tear. He spent the early portion of the rehab in the city to visit a clinic to strengthen his leg muscles.
Roma could get Scamacca only if West Ham were willing to let him go on loan with option or obligation to buy. The final fee would have to be affordable. On the other hand, the European Conference League champions paid €40M to acquire him from Sassuolo last summer.
AS Roma director Tiago Pinto will be in London later this week in order to advance in negotiations with West Ham for Gianluca Scamacca ?? #WHUFC

Instead, his wages wouldn’t be a problem, as he makes €3M per year, and neither would be his desire to return. He spent three years in their youth academy before going abroad. The Giallorossi continue to keep tabs on Alvaro Morata even though he extended his contract with Atletico Madrid, the outlet adds.
✅ Timing totally confirmed: Evan #Ndicka will an #ASRoma’s player. Expected medicals and signing in the next hours. Contract until 2028. He had chosen #Roma since many weeks despite interests of the other clubs. #transfers https://t.co/ZySfUv7cFw

Our Take on Roma and Scamacca
His agent is surely getting busy considering the insistent chatter. At this stage, La Lupa needs him the most given their star’s injury. However, they could snatch him only if West Ham have already completely lost faith in him.
