West Ham insider ExWHUemployee has revealed the club is ‘unsure’ whether they would be willing to increase their offer for Gianluca Scamacca.

The Hammers made a bid of over £30m for the striker last week and are waiting to hear back from Sassuolo regarding their decision.

But with the club also in negotiations with Chelsea for 20-year-old striker Armando Broja, it’s unclear whether the Hammers would be willing to increase their Scamacca offer if the Italians come back with a counter-offer.

Ex wrote on the West Ham Way Patreon page: “The offer is in for Scamacca but it hasn’t been accepted as yet and the club are unsure whether they want to offer any more for the player. Talks will continue.

“However, this player was a Newman target brought to Moyes whereas Broja was his own.”

The fact West Ham are in discussions over the signing of two strikers is hugely promising for West Ham fans, but it does appear like there might be an internal battle between David Moyes and Rob Newman over who should be signed.

Newman was brought in specifically to identify key targets who would fit Moyes’ preferred style and system, so it’s encouraging that this is beginning to bear fruit following a barron January transfer window when nobody was signed.

But Moyes has also proven to have a good eye for talent, given his recruitment record since returning to the club in December 2019.

With the deal to sign Broja now reportedly being a season-long loan, instead of a permanent one, then it wouldn’t come as a surprise if West Ham pushed forward for both strikers, but that remains to be seen.
