Exclusive: West Ham working on three signings, one is in final stages of negotiations

Posted by

West Ham United are working on three signings, Fabrizio Romano has revealed in his latest exclusive CaughtOffside column via Substack.

Hammers fans will be excited to hear that negotiations for Sassuolo striker Gianluca Scamacca are now in the final stages, and after that there could be other big names on the way to the London Stadium.

Romano adds that Amadou Onana has been targeted by West Ham, and they’re likely to move for him again once the Scamacca deal is done.

On top of that, David Moyes’ side are working to agree terms with Eintracht Frankfurt left-back Filip Kostic.

“Gianluca Scamacca is expected to become a new West Ham player soon,” Romano explains.

“The deal is at the final stages for €36m plus €6m add-ons, plus a sell-on clause worth 10%. Sassuolo have already accepted the proposal while West Ham and Scamacca’s agent Alessandro Lucci are settling the tax details with the player.

“West Ham have also been discussing Filip Kostic with the same agent. There has already been a €12-13m offer made to Eintracht Frankfurt, but negotiations with Kostic on personal terms are still at an early stage.

“Finally, West Ham have also submitted a €38m bid for Lille midfielder Amadou Onana, but there is still no definitive agreement. The Hammers’ priority is to sign Scamacca, and then put their focus into negotiating the Onana deal further.”

West Ham have been challenging for the European places in the last couple of seasons, and signings like this could really propel Moyes’ side to even greater heights.

  1. So Scamacca’s deal is all but done leaving two others to deal with.Why wait until Scamacca’s deal is finalised before moving on to Kostic and Onana.Is it too much to deal with 2 a ta a time or is it,as women say,men can’t multitask?

  2. I understand what you are saying steve but we have been waiting 3 years now for a top class striker and feel no matter what get all our focus and attention over the line for Scamacca first. Then we can shift our primary focus on to other targets, especially at LB and with Antonio at 32 and injury prone a backup striker like Brereton Diaz. I do like Onana who looks like a power house in midfield.

    1. Hi Muffybean, of course you are absolutely right,its just me being sarcastic and a little impatient,as usual. I am hoping that we get all our targets and manage to push the “top 4” this season.

  3. Doing two concurrent negotiations with the same agent may not be possible and Scamacca and Kostic share the same rep. It looks like the club are the sticking point with Onana. They’re probably testing the market before progressing. And West Ham will need to update what’s possible budget-wise at the end of each deal.

  4. All fantastic news for us hammers fans but we’ve been waiting a long time for this to happen and only when I see these potential signings in claret and blue will I believe it’s happened
