West Ham agree personal terms with striker Scamacca

West Ham have agreed personal terms with Sassuolo striker Gianluca Scamacca, after a £35.5m bid was accepted by the Italian club.

The 23-year-old is expected to fly into London on Monday ahead of a medical on Tuesday, after West Ham and the player struck an agreement on a five-year contract, plus the option of a further year.

The Hammers have agreed to pay an initial £30.5m with £5m in add-ons to Sassuolo for the frontman who scored 16 goals in 36 Serie A appearances last season for the Italian side. The deal includes a 10 per cent sell-on clause for Sassuolo.

Scamacca is set to become West Ham's fourth signing of the summer, following the arrivals of defender Nayef Aguerd, who joined from Rennes for £30m, goalkeeper Alphonse Areola for £7.75m from Paris Saint-Germain after his successful loan stint last season, and midfielder Flynn Downesfrom Swansea City for an undisclosed fee.
