West Ham: £90k-a-week star could be 'bargain signing' at London Stadium

George Cannon

West Ham United striker Gianluca Scamacca could turn out to be ‘a bit of a bargain’ in the long run, according to journalist Dean Jones.

The talented 23-year-old has made a very promising start to life on English shores and has played a key role in the Hammers transforming their early season woes in recent weeks.
What is the latest news involving Scamacca?

Back in July, West Ham splashed out £35.5 million prise Scamacca away from Serie A outfit Sassuolo, with the player penning a five-year contract worth £90,000-per-week that includes the option of a further 12 months.

David Moyes couldn’t hide his excitement at the Italy international’s arrival at his unveiling, stating that he has a ‘really bright future’ in the game and that he’s ‘looking forward’ to working with him.

"We've been looking to add more strength to our attacking options for a while, so we're delighted to have got Gianluca in,” said the Scottish tactician.

“He comes really well recommended - and we're looking forward to working with him. He's a young centre-forward with a really bright future ahead of him."

And Scamacca has lived up to those expectations so far, scoring a handful of goals both domestically and in Europe, including some memorable strikes against Fulham and Silkeborg IF.

What has Jones said about Scamacca?

Jones believes that Scamacca could emulate former West Ham forward Marko Arnautovic as he also ‘brings things to life’ in the final third of the pitch.

In an interview with GiveMeSport, he said: “He could be like an Arnautovic-type figure that brings things to life at moments when you need them.

“They've got a really good player, and to be honest, at £35 million, he might turn out to be a bit of a bargain.”
How good is Scamacca?

Scamacca established himself as one of Europe’s most exciting young attacking talents last season after he racked up 16 goals in 36 Serie A appearances for Sassuolo.

And the 6 foot 5 giant has hit the ground running since making the switch to West Ham, finding the back of the net on six occasions in 12 games across all competitions.

Scamacca’s form has played a pivotal part in West Ham winning five of their previous six fixtures, easing the tension and pressure that was building on Moyes’ shoulders.

Keeping this level of performance up on a consistent basis will now be the task for Scamacca, and all the indications so far suggest he is more than capable of doing just that.

Amazing what difference it can make when you sign an actual striker isn’t it.
