West Ham flop Gianluca Scamacca lined up for shock move to European giants just months after £30.5m transfer

STRUGGLING West Ham striker Gianluca Scamacca could reportedly be offered an escape route out of London by a European giant.

The Hammers forked out £30.5m to Sassuolo for the 24-year-old last summer.

However, the Italian international has struggled in the Premier League and has scored just seven times in 26 outings.

Despite his struggles, La Gazzetta Dello Sport claim that Inter Milan are targeting a move for Scamacca.

The Serie A side are looking to replace veteran frontman Edin Dzeko, 36, at the end of the season.

The publication claims that talks between the former Manchester City ace and Inter over an extension have stalled.

He wants a two-year deal once his current one expires in June but Inter are only willing to offer him one-year.

And if no agreement can be reached then they already allegedly have a target identified in West Ham’s Scamacca.

Only three of his goals have come in the top-flight for David Moyes’ struggling side and that has led to him losing his place.

He made his first appearance since January when coming off the bench in last night’s 2-0 Conference League last-16 first-leg win over AEK Larnaca. 


Michail Antonio, who scored both goals, is currently ahead of him in the pecking order.

While January recruit Danny Ings appears to be first-choice for Moyes as he looks to guide the Hammers to safety.

And the East London outfit will be desperate for their frontman to produce the goods on Sunday when they host Aston Villa.
