Atalanta overtake Roma, Inter in race for Gianluca Scamacca

IF24 Desk

There’s a new frontrunner in the race to sign Italian international Gianluca Scamacca.

According to Goal Italia, Atalanta are the new favorites to land the former Sassuolo man, overtaking Roma and Inter in the transfer battle to land the striker. Aiming to find a replacement following Rasmus Hojlund’s transfer to Manchester United, La Dea are confident they can tempt West Ham into a sale by including a player into the deal.

They’re reportedly ready to submit an important offer that includes defender Merih Demiral, a tempting proposition for West Ham considering their need for an additional central defender.

The news comes just days after Inter entered into talks with the Hammers and were prepared to submit a fresh bid after their recent proposal of €‎20 million was rejected. Meanwhile, the Giallorossi have shifted their focus to other targets, including Atletico Madrid and ex-Juventus attacker Alvaro Morata.
