For weeks now, Paris Saint-Germain has been heavily linked with a move for Sassuolo forward Gianluca Scamacca. However, this could all change soon.
Sassuolo CEO Giovanni Carnevali confirmed on Thursday that not only is PSG open to signing Scamacca, but West Ham United is also in the running for such a move as well. He noted that PSG is “offering” €35 million for the Italian international, while West Ham is keen on shelling out €5 million more than the Ligue 1 side’s proposal for him.
From PSG’s standpoint, the club is not planning to go all out to bring in Scamacca before the ongoing summer transfer window closes.
According to RMC Sport’s Loic Tanzi, Scamacca is “no longer considered” to be PSG’s top attacking option for this transfer window. He adds that for Scamacca to take his talents to the reigning Ligue 1 champions, Sassuolo will have to lower its demands for the forward.
As it stands, PSG is set to have the likes of Pablo Sarabia and Mauro Icardi as manager Christophe Galtier’s main backup forward options for this season. Still, this can all change over the remainder of the summer window.
