West Ham are closing in on the signing of Italian international striker Gianluca Scamacca.

Our man-in-the-know ExWHUemployee has confirmed that a fee of £30.6m plus £5m in add ons has been agreed with Serie A club Sassuolo.

Ex has also reported that personal terms are close to complete with the player due to fly in this weekend to complete his medical.

The striker has been a target for clubs including Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus and Arsenal, so this represents a huge coup for David Moyes and the club.
