A return in Serie A cannot be ruled out for West Ham’s striker Gianluca Scamacca as Milan and Juventus are keeping tabs on him, Daniele Longo reports.
Scamacca joined the Hammers from Sassuolo last summer for a reported fee of €42 million bonus included and a percentage (10%) of a future sale, after he had scored 16 goals in 36 Serie A games last season.
He then failed to become a starter in London, scoring only eight goals in 27 games across all competitions with only three of them coming in Premier League.
His season was cut short when, a couple of weeks ago, West Ham announced that he was set for an operation on his knee injury.
Despite this problem, Milan and Juventus are monitoring the situation, in case West Ham will be open for a sale.
It has been reported that the Rossoneri will be looking for a new striker in the next transfer window and Scamacca is highly praised by technical director Paolo Maldini but, in the case of an offer, Milan might only propose a loan with an option to buy.
Juventus are interested in Scamacca too but he might become a real option for the board only if either they sell Dusan Vlahović or they fail to trigger the buy option for Arkadiusz Milik.
