Calciomercato reported that AC Milan are prepared to take the initiative in pursuing West Ham talent Gianluca Scamacca this summer. As relays the WHZ, the Serie A giant intends to engage in discussions with the Hammers regarding the striker’s current situation.
Scamacca, who joined the East London club just last summer, had a challenging debut season in England, scoring eight goals in 27 matches. Nevertheless, the Italian international remains in high demand, as several clubs continue to believe in his potential.
During his time at Sassuolo, Scamacca netted 16 goals in 41 appearances, which led to his transfer to West Ham. However, he was unable to replicate that form while wearing the claret and blue shirt.
With 24 goals to his name from 65 Serie A appearances, Scamacca has proven his capabilities in the Italian top flight. This is likely why AC Milan is expressing interest in bringing him back to his home country.
Calciomercato shared: “Milan, which has been monitoring the pitch for some time, is willing to make a first move: in fact, during the week, the Rossoneri will try to talk to the Hammers about the situation regarding the first striker: the attempt is to lay the foundations for a negotiation,”
“However, the Rossoneri are well aware that, at least for now, West Ham are not willing to let the ex-Sassuolo leave on loan after paying out a good €36million (£31million) just a year ago.”
