Gianluca Scamacca believes West Ham is the perfect fit for him after the Italy international signed a five-year contract following his move from Sassuolo.

The fee for the 23-year-old, whose contract includes the option to extend for a further 12 months, is understood to be around £30million and ends manager David Moyes' long search for a recognised centre-forward.

"I've waited a long time for this moment - it's been a dream to play in the Premier League," Scamacca, who scored 16 goals in Serie A last season, told whufc.com.

The transfer appears to be a real coup for Moyes with Scamacca, who scored 16 goals in 36 matches in Serie A last season, also linked with Paris St Germain and Juventus.

Moyes has had to rely on Michail Antonio to lead his attack since the Hammers sold Sebastien Haller to Ajax in January last year.

"We've been looking to add more strength to our attacking options for a while, so we're delighted to have got Gianluca in," said the Hammers boss.

"He comes really well recommended - and we're looking forward to working with him. He's a young centre-forward with a really bright future ahead of him.

Stuttgart midfielder Orel Mangala is having a medical at Nottingham Forest ahead of a proposed transfer.
The 24-year-old is undergoing his health checks on Tuesday and is poised to become the club's 12th signing of the summer, the PA news agency understands.

Mangala, who has won two international caps for Belgium, played 29 times for Stuttgart last season as they finished 15th in the Bundesliga.

Assuming there are no issues with the medical, Mangala will join up with Forest in time for their final pre-season friendly against Valencia on Saturday.

Toure has completed his UEFA A Licence

Former Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure has been given a full-time role in Tottenham's academy, the PA news agency understands.

The three-time Premier League winner has spent time with the club since December in an unofficial capacity while he worked towards his UEFA A Licence.

Toure completed his coaching course with the Football Association of Wales earlier this summer and will now have his own age group to coach at Spurs.

The 39-year-old has not played professionally since a stint with Chinese club Qingdao Huanghai in 2019 but did train with Sky Bet League Two club Leyton Orient briefly ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.

While Toure, the younger brother of ex-Arsenal defender and current Leicester first-team coach Kolo, has never announced his retirement, he has long held ambitions to move into coaching like his sibling.

A brief spell with QPR working alongside head of coaching Chris Ramsey at the beginning of 2021 saw the ex-Ivory Coast international get a taste for life on the touchline, which acted as a catalyst for his first job after playing.

Toure spent time with Ukrainian Premier League side Olimpik Donetsk and then Akhmat Grozny, of the Russian Premier League, before he returned to his home in England at the end of last year.

Back in London with his family, the former Barcelona ace started helping out at Tottenham's academy in December with the under-18s while he worked towards his UEFA A License and has impressed enough to earn a full-time role as an academy coach with the Premier League side.
