New Reported: £27m Sam Lammers alternative on form with Atalanta….

Former West Ham striker Gianluca Scamacca is finding his form with Atalanta after replacing under-fire Rangers forward Sam Lammers in Italy.

The Italian side paid a reported £27m to hold off the likes of Inter Milan and AS Roma to sign Gianluca Scamacca but a hamstring injury hampered his bright start to life in in Italy.

Now back amongst the goals for Atalanta – the striker netted twice and assisted another in the 3-0 win over Empoli – the Italian side will be delighted to have their new striker on form.

In total, Gianluca Scamacca has netted four goals for Atalanta with the other two another double in a 3-0 win over Monza before the hamstring problem.

The Italian side lost three strikers in the summer transfer window with Rasmus Hojlund (Manchester United), Emmanuel Latte Lath (Middlesbrough) and Sam Lammers (Rangers) being sold off.

Gianluca Scamacca finds Atalanta form as Sam Lammers toils

With the some £70m+ raised in these deals Atalanta were able to fund a deal for Gianluca Scamacca who didn’t exactly come cheap.

The Italians also spent around £25m to bring Almeria striker El Bilal Toure to the club and the Ivorian has also had a bright start to life in Italy, scoring seven Serie A goals already.

Rasmus Hojlund is still without a Premier League goal for Manchester United, Emmanuel Latte Lath has been used primarily as a substitute at Middlesbrough and Sam Lammers, well, we’ve written enough about that.

On the surface it looks a solid transfer window for Atalanta who will now look to build both Gianluca Scamacca an El Bilal Toure up to potentially sell on for even bigger money.

Equally underwhelming stints at Eintracht Frankfurt, Empoli and Sampdoria followed, something which has Rangers asking why Michael Beale spent £3.5m to bring him to Ibrox.

But as Sam Lammers toils, another Rangers summer signing is beginning to show something more positive in the final third of the park.
