Sassuolo striker Gianluca Scamacca is to undergo a medical at West Ham United tomorrow ahead of a £30.5million move, The Athletic understands.

The 23-year-old striker is flying into London tonight, after West Ham and Sassuolo reached an agreement on Friday.

It is thought that the deal contains up to £5million in additional add-ons, while the Italian club will retain a 10 per cent sell-on fee.

Scamacca, who is 6ft 5in, scored 16 goals in 36 Serie A appearances last season. He also made his Italy debut, and featured for the national side against England at Molineux.

David Moyes has been eager to land a striker in this window and the search for attacking reinforcements has intensified after Jesse Lingard opted to join Nottingham Forest rather than return to east London.

A product of Roma's academy, Scamacca joined PSV in 2015, progressing through their youth sides, before signing for Sassuolo in 2017.

West Ham have so far signed centre-back Nayef Aguerd and young midfielder Flynn Downes, as well as securing goalkeeper Alphonse Areola on a permanent basis.

The club start their season against Manchester City on August 7.
