Italian club Sassuolo have sent a classy goodbye to West Ham’s new striker Gianluca Scamacca that shows how highly rated he is.
West Ham have been linked with the former Sassuolo striker all summer and Hammers fans can finally celebrate the arrival of the 6ft 5in 23-year-old Italian.
Italian transfer ITK reporter Fabrizio Romano gave the ‘here we go’ on the blockbuster West Ham move for Scamacca on Monday.
That had all but confirmed Moyes’ 18-month search for striker number 50 of the David Sullivan and David Gold era was at an end.
Hammers News confirmed Scamacca’s first words as he jetted in to sign on the dotted line and complete his medical were “Yes I’m happy” when asked about signing for West Ham.
And late last night the Italian’s arrival was officially confirmed on the club’s official website.
As ever with signings from foreign leagues there is the usual debate in football circles whether the towering but fleet-footed forward will be a success in the Premier League with West Ham.
But Sassuolo have sent a classy goodbye to West Ham’s new striker Scamacca that shows how highly he is rated.
“Gianluca Scamacca sold to West Ham,” Sassuolo stated on their website and social channels alongside a handshake emoji.
“Since that distant 2017 you have grown a lot.
“And the last year with us in neroverde was truly spectacular!!!
“The future belongs to you! Good luck Gianluca!”
We’re not crying, you are.
What a classy farewell to West Ham’s new number seven.
Sassuolo clearly rate Scamacca highly and believe he will go on to be a top player.
Landing the 6ft 5in Italy international at just 23 years of age after a brilliant season in Serie A is a serious coup for the Hammers.
It is further evidence of the new recruitment philosophy and strategy put in place by the manager and head of recruitment Newman.
And it proves beyond any doubt the manager and the ex Man City talent spotting chief are the ones genuinely calling the shots over all signings at West Ham.
