An update on West Ham United’s ongoing efforts in the Premier League to bolster the club’s front line ahead of next season was provided on Thursday evening.
Securing new blood, of course, has emerged as a priority at the London Stadium with the aim of the 2022/23 campaign.
It comes with Irons totally over-reliant on key man Michael Antonio last time out, lacking any reliable backup option for the Jamaican international.
Until recently, the killer most inclined to associate with David Moyes’ forces this summer was of course Armando Bruga.
Amid suggestions that Tomas Tuchel may have stepped in personally to ensure the Albanian talent remains on the Chelsea books for now, although the powers that be at West Ham have had to turn their attention elsewhere.

And now, as noted above, the first alternative option on the part of Moyes and co. been detected.
According to a report by Sky Sports, Irons is pressing hard to secure the signature of famous Italian international Gianluca Scamacca.
Those efforts have pushed the London stadium transfer team to go further than making an opening bid for the Sassuolo star, who is understood to have crossed the €40m mark.
“Positive discussions”, in turn, are currently underway between the two clubs.
