Roma Tipped to Modify Offer to Sign West Ham Reject

Roma tried to go all-in on Alvaro Morata, but they’d have to spend a big to sign him, so they will soon revisit Gianluca Scamacca. They’ll have to change their proposal, as West Ham rejected a loan with option to buy.

According to Il Messaggero, the new offer should envisage the obligation to purchase the striker for €25M next summer. The Irons paid €36M to acquire him from Sassuolo last summer.

Scamacca has professed his love for Roma, where he played when he was a youngster, and his admiration for José Mourinho. The Giallorossi are in the hunt for at least one prolific scorer. Tammy Abraham won’t be available till January due to an ACL tear.

They recently had a meeting with the entourage of Morata. As is the case for Inter and Juventus, they’d have to trigger his €21M release clause, plus he makes €5M per year. The other potential fallbacks are RB Salzburg’s Noah Okafor, Leicester City’s Patson Daka, and RB Leipzig’s André Silva.

Our Take on Roma and Scamacca

It’d be a better offer, but it would pretty much guarantee they’ll part ways with a linchpin next summer. That’s neither here nor there at this stage. Trying to sign big-ticket players with no budget is a tall order.
