Gianluca Scamacca has extended his contract with Sassuolo, despite rumours linking him with a move away from the club this summer.
Scamacca’s form this season has seen him garner interest from a number of Italian sides, with Milan regularly touted as a potential suitor considering their current striker situation heading into the summer.
But, announced on Sassuolo’s official website, it has been confirmed that Scamacca’s contract has now been renewed through to June 2026.
While a renewal suggests the 23-year-old will stay put with Sassuolo, the likelihood is that it allows the club to negotiate his departure from a stronger position in the summer.
Scamacca has bagged 13 times already this season and is largely expected to make a step up to one of Italy’s top sides, considering his potential.
Sassuolo can now demand a higher transfer fee for their prized asset, making any potential pursuit of the Italian immediately more complicated.
