'Has to improve': Midfielder says 23-year-old West Ham player needs to get better with left foot

West Ham United’s Gianluca Scamacca has been hailed as Italy’s best striker by international teammate Davide Frattesi.

Midfielder Frattesi has been a reported target for the Hammers, but it seems like he is going to stay in Serie A and move from Sassoulo back to Roma.

He is very close with Scamacca and told CMW that he thinks the 23-year-old deserves to be starting every game for his country.

Frattesi on Scamacca

He said of the man he is so close with personally: “In my opinion he is the strongest Italian striker because last season he showed it.

“Immobile scores a lot but in my opinion in terms of pure quality, he knows how to do everything. I always told him that if he had the nastiness that Vlahovic has when he goes on the ball, it becomes difficult for defenders.

“There were days when he was unplayable. He has to improve with his left foot. But for the physique he has, technically he is so strong.”

Italy are not at the World Cup despite being the current European champions, as they were eliminated in qualifying by North Macedonia.

Scamacca took some time to settle at West Ham but found his scoring form in the Europa Conference League before getting the chances to transfer that to the Premier League.

He will now hope to come back firing once again after the World Cup break, when the Hammers will look to climb the table.
