Scamacca reports are wildly premature

Suggestions that Gianluca Scamacca will never play for West Ham again are wildly premature club insiders insist. The Hammers would want to recover the total £30.5m they paid for him last summer, plus any triggered extras. Roma has offered a loan fee of £4.3m plus an obligation to buy of £18.9m.

West Ham would prefer an outright permanent transfer if they are forced to sell, but if they consider a loan, it must have a significant loan fee with a straightforward obligation to buy based on a short number of appearances. They do not want to allow Scamacca to leave on the cheap.

Scamacca is a contracted player, and the club expects him to continue training and making himself available for match-day squads.

Today a senior club source responded to reports that Gianluca Scamacca has already agreed on personal terms with Roma by saying, “He seems to want out, but unless we get a proper offer, he’s going nowhere”
