Roma Make Decisive Breakthrough for Marquee Striker

Wantaway West Ham United ace Gianluca Scamacca has chosen his childhood club Roma as his next destination. According to La Repubblica, the Italian striker is keen to return to the Stadio Olimpico following a season-long nightmare in the Premier League.

Scamacca’s dreams of becoming a standout performer in the world’s toughest league have fallen apart after just one year. West Ham put in a lot of effort to prise the 24-year-old away from Sassuolo last summer. But the move hasn’t worked out as planned.

Initially designed to replace aging Michail Antonio, Scamacca has never found his feet in London. And now, it’s time to go back to where it all started, with Roma waiting in the wings. Jose Mourinho wants the Italian striker to lead the line next season.

The feeling is mutual. Scamacca is equally enthusiastic about the prospect of working with the Special One. He is even ready to reject Milan’s proposal to force a return to Roma. But the player’s wish isn’t enough the get the deal over the line.

Convincing West Ham to sanction a move is a tricky part. The Hammers are open to selling Scamacca. Yet, while Roma would ideally take him on loan with an option to buy, the English club insists on an outright sale. As ever, money is the problem.

Roma cannot afford West Ham’s £30.5 million asking price. Therefore, they must find common ground with David Moyes’ side to pull off the deal.
