West Ham officially announced the departure of Gianluca Scamacca yesterday with a shoer 82-word statement which read..

West Ham United can confirm that Gianluca Scamacca has departed the Club and joined Atalanta BC. The 24-year-old has moved to the Italian Serie A side on a permanent transfer for an undisclosed fee.The centre-forward spent a single season at London Stadium and scored eight goals in 27 appearances, including five in the Hammers’ run to lifting the UEFA Europa Conference League.West Ham United would like to thank Gianluca for his efforts and wish him well for his future career.”

The Italian striker endured a difficult season at West Ham following a £30.5m move from Sassuolo last summer, scoring eight goals in 27 appearances, he is not thought to have triggered any of the £5m of add-ons.

Atalanta are paying a €25m (£21.5m) transfer fee for the striker plus a further €5m (£4.3m) in ‘semi tough’ add-ons bring the potential package to £25.8m

West Ham amortised the £30,5m transfer fee over the five-year contract of their player meaning £6m has already been written off on paper leaving £24.5m on the books.

Taking to X formally known as Twitter, the Italy international wrote: “Dear West Ham. While my time in London didn’t go the way I had planned, some of my greatest life moments were made here. And for that I’m forever grateful Thank you to the players and staff for making me feel so welcome, and the fans for their continued support. I will continue to support this fantastic club from home in Italy, and will be keeping in close touch with the lifelong friends I have made whilst in England Thank you for everything, Ciao.”
