West Ham striker Gianluca Scamacca has declared he wants to join AS Roma and play for coach Jose Mourinho.
After a year with West Ham, where he moved from Sassuolo, Scamacca is attracting interest from the Giallorossi.
“Roma is home for me,” he told La Gazzetta dello Sport. “And (Francesco) Totti my idol as a child.
“And what player in the world wouldn’t dream of being coached by Mourinho? I am convinced that Mou would stimulate me and with him I would improve even more.”
Asked if he missed Italy, he replied: “I’ve always had it and I always will have it. But if I had to return to Serie A, it wouldn’t be because I failed in England, that’s not the case. Simply because it would be an unmissable opportunity.
“No, it wouldn’t even be a step backwards for my career: our league remains one of the best.”
