West Ham striker Gianluca Scamacca urged to return to Sassuolo by head coach

Sassuolo head coach Alessio Dionisi has urged wantaway West Ham striker Gianluca Scamacca to return to the club.

Scamacca left Sassuolo last summer to join West Ham for a £35.5million fee (Sky Sports) after scoring 16 goals in 41 appearances for the Serie A outfit.

Now, the striker is already being linked with a move away from the London Stadium after just one season and Dionisi has added fuel to the fire with his recent comments.

Speaking on Wednesday 28 June, Dionisi told reporters, “We are on good terms, I spoke to him [Scamacca] a few months ago,” as reported by Football Italia (29 June).

“If I had to give him tips, I’d talk to him directly. The only thing I’d tell him is to pick Sassuolo. He will make the best choice with his entourage.”

It is hard to see Scamacca staying at West Ham past this summer.

With the player reportedly keen on a move away and people speaking very openly in public about his future, the striker seems destined to leave the London Stadium this summer.

It is a real disappointment after he arrived in a big-money switch, but he is clearly not suited to the club or English football and a return to Italy seems like the smartest move for the 24-year-old. Whether or not that will be to his former side Sassuolo remains to be seen.

A switch to Roma has been rumoured and this would likely be the more favourable destination for the Italian with the chance to play European football under Jose Mourinho.


West Ham

For the Hammers, it is another striker who hasn’t worked out and they will once again be left scratching their heads as they continue to search for a long-term solution up front.

In other West Ham news, talks continue as club’s attempt to rescue ‘minor’ issue in big-money transfer.
