Gianluca Scamacca is coming into his own at West Ham and can be seen “bouncing off the atmosphere” at the London Stadium.
What’s the word?
The insider is impressed with his recent turn of form and believes the Italian international is “working hard.”
Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, Jones said: “Scamacca seems so motivated to be a success. I mean, he’s working hard. Even when things don’t come off for him, he’s trying hard to go again and make things happen.
“He’s a really useful player. He’s bouncing off the atmosphere, too. I think he’s just loving life in the Premier League and being at this level.”
A goalscoring nightmare
Quite simply, Scamacca’s threat in front of goal when he is on-song is potent and would cause nightmares for any team.
Yet that assertion is made even more catastrophic when you add in the fact that the Italian is an enabler for Michail Antonio who can “come off the bench and cause nightmares” himself, according to Will Lebeau on Twitter.
The 23-year-old has been a revelation for the Hammers since returning from international duty with Italy and picked the best time to turn his fortunes around.
He emerged just when Moyes needed him most, scoring in the all-important 2-0 win against Wolves at the start of the month, where a defeat could well have landed the Irons boss in a whole host of trouble.
Scamacca has scored two goals since, bagging against Anderlecht in his 20-minute Europa Conference cameo and carrying that form on in what was his third Premier League start against Fulham.
Whilst he failed to score in his fourth Premier League start, it was not for the want of trying, having registered seven shots – though his 0.44xG total does not paint these efforts in the best light.
Nevertheless, the impact that €36m (£31m) Scamacca has had so far is entirely promising and may benefit 32-year-old Antonio in the long-run as a second-fiddle striker.
