Gianluca Scamacca lands in London to finalize West Ham United move

Gianluca Scamacca has reportedly landed in London to finalize his move to West Ham this summer.

According to Fabrizio Romano, the Italy international had a chat with David Moyes on July 25 before boarding his flight.

Papers have been signed between Sassuolo and the Hammers and the 23-year-old is set to become the first senior striker to arrive at the London Stadium since the sale of Sebastien Haller.

Going through Twitter, the Sky Sports reporter wrote: “Medical tests and contract signing Tuesday morning for new West Ham striker Gianluca Scamacca – just landed in London. Paperwork already signed between the clubs with Sassuolo. David Moyes also had a chat with Scamacca today morning.

Moving wheels

The Hammers acted like a top club this summer and finally got the transfer target they wanted the most.

It was always going to be a draw between Armando Broja and the Italian and after discussions with the players and representatives, it looks like the latter has emerged as the favourite.

We can’t wait to see how Scamacca fits into this West Ham squad as he is exactly what Moyes would have wanted from his striker.

The Scot likes tall and muscular forwards who are not only good at winning the ball in the air but also adept at holding the ball and getting others into the game.

In the 23-year-old, the Irons finally have a striker who can push for 15-20 Premier League goals a season and that’s huge considering they want to become realistic top-four contenders in the years to come.

They signed a defender and have now signed a striker and it looks like they will sign another midfielder while retaining the services of Declan Rice.

It should be considered a solid window so far.
