West Ham United striker Gianluca Scamacca is close to joining Inter Milan in a deal worth €30 million.

This according to Sky Sport Italia transfer market expert Gianluca Di Marzio, who reports on his homepage that the two clubs are close to a total agreement for the 24-year-old’s transfer, and that he could make the switch very soon.

Yesterday Inter held a very significant meeting with West Ham regarding Scamacca.

The Nerazzurri put forward an offer for the 24-year-old worth around €25 million including add-ons.

Whilst this was not high enough for the Hammers to accept, it was not miles off of their expectations.

Scamacca, who cost around €40 million for West Ham to sign from Sassuolo last summer, is amortized in the Londoners’ balance sheet at around €30 million. Therefore, that is around the amount the Hammers would aim to recoup.

As such, there is clearly a basis for negotiations between the clubs.

If Inter improve their offer a reasonable amount, they can certainly convince West Ham.

This means that the Nerazzurri have now taken a decisive step ahead of Roma in the race for Scamacca’s signature. The Giallorossi are only capable of offering West Ham an initial loan deal.

Di Marzio Anticipates That Gianluca Scamacca Move To Inter Not Far Away

According to Scamacca, after yesterday’s talks, the move is not far away.

He confirms that €30 million is the sum that West Ham will aim for.

However, if the Nerazzurri get close to that amount, then there would be little top stop a deal from happening.

Therefore, Di Marzio anticipates that the final fee for Scamacca could be around €25 million, plus an additional €5 million in add-ons.

Now Inter aren’t wasting any more times.

The Nerazzurri can quickly get through the rest of the talks with West Ham.

Then, within the near future, Scamacca could sign his contract and join up with the rest of the Inter squad.
