Gianluca Scamacca linked with Roma after West Ham stint

Italian striker Gianluca Mancini has been linked with Roma as the capital club continue their search for Tammy Abraham’s replacement.

Abraham’s injury complicated Roma’s initial transfer plans, forcing the Giallorossi to evaluate various candidates for the job including Mauro Icardi, M’Bala Nzola and Alvaro Morata.

Now, Corriere della Sera reports that Gianluca Scamacca is also being taken into consideration.

The ex-Sassuolo man – struck by a long-term injury – failed to impress at West Ham and seems destined to return to Italy.

Roma could represent a good opportunity for him as they will play in Europa League and have Jose Mourinho entering his third year at the club.
