Sassuolo striker Gianluca Scamacca is in talks with PSG over a potential move to France, reports GFFN. The 23-year-old striker has already turned down a move to Arsenal due to his desire to remain in Italy.
The Italian signed a new deal in April until 2026, and Sassuolo are set to command a hefty fee for his services. Arsenal remains interested but PSG have reportedly moved ahead of them in the race to sign Scamacca.
PSG-Scamacca Potential Deal
Scamacca bagged 16 goals in the Serie A this season, attracting interest from all over Europe. PSG have spoken to the player regarding a move, but he will take some convincing to leave his homeland Italy. Although Kylian Mbappe renewed his contract, the future of Icardi is very uncertain. The youngsters could form a great pair upfront for several years, so the interest is justified.
Multiple reports claim that PSG are preparing a bid in the region of €45m.
Gianluca Scamacca: Rise to the Top
A former Roma and Lazio academy product, the Sassuolo talisman has been on fire this season. He has scored 16 times in the league this season, with a very impressive all-round game. His form has earned him a place in the Italian side too recently earning his 5th cap. Although he hasn’t netted for the national team yet, it doesn’t look like this drought will last for long.
Scamacca loves to make runs in behind and is a huge set-piece threat and presence in both boxes. The young striker has the world at his feet but still has a lot of room for improvement. His ball retention isn’t the best, but he’s still 23 years old and should be able to improve at any of the big clubs in the near future.
He joined a list of Elite youngsters including Haaland and Vinicius Jr. when he crossed 15 goals in the 21/22 campaign.
His Future: What Lies Ahead for the Bagman?
Sassuolo are already looking for replacements as Scamacca has attracted a lot of interest from many clubs after his stellar campaign.
According to The Athletic, PSG leads the race for his signature but West Ham, Arsenal, and Newcastle all remain interested.
Sassuolo director Giovanni Carnevali has admitted that clubs are beginning to take notice of Scamacca.
“There’s nothing concrete yet for Scamacca, just some contacts with some clubs. Of course, after playing with the National team the interest is now growing,”
At 23, he has a promising career ahead of him, some of his old clubs must already be regretting letting go of him at such a young age.
Ex-Roma sporting director Walter Sabatini rues Scamacca’s 2015 exit:
“I did everything I could to keep him.”
With many potential suitors coming his way this summer, Gianluca Scamacca is definitely a player to keep an eye on for the next decade or so.
