Inter Milan reportedly remain off the mark in their attempts to sign Gianluca Scamacca from West Ham United.

In recent days, the 24-year-old has emerged as the club’s favorite target to bolster the attacking department.

The well-traveled Italian international enjoyed a stellar 2021/22 campaign at Sassuolo. However, he couldn’t quite replicate his goal-scoring form after earning a switch to East London.

Therefore, the Hammers could be open to a sale while naming their price for the Roman native.

According to Il Corriere dello Sport via FcInterNews, West Ham are requesting 30 million euros for Scamacca. For their part, Inter Milan could be willing to reach 25 million in addition to bonuses.

Therefore, the source believes that the two clubs still have some work to do to bridge the gap and finalize the transfer of the Italian bomber.

Moreover, the Nerazzurri could also propose an initial loan deal with an obligation to buy. Thus, the talks will also revolve around the formula.

The report adds that Inter have identified Scamacca as their most suitable target after failing to find a breakthrough in negotiations for other candidates.

As the source explains, the track that leads to Atletico Madrid striker Alvaro Morata remained lukewarm.

On the other hand, Arsenal are asking for 50 million euros to part ways with Folarin Balogun. Inter have no intention to splash such figures on the USMNT star.
