Sassuolo CEO Giovanni Carnevali has admitted that Premier League clubs have registered an interest in Gianluca Scamacca, who has been linked with a move to Tottenham ahead of the summer transfer window.

Scamacca has found the back of the net 13 times in Serie A so far this campaign (Transfermarkt) and the striker’s form has seemingly attracted the interest of some top clubs.

The Daily Express previously revealed that the Sassuolo star was ‘appreciated’ by Spurs managing director of football Fabio Paratici and the striker is ‘one to keep an eye on’ for Tottenham during the summer transfer window.

According to Alfredo Pedulla, the likes of Spurs, Newcastle and Manchester United are set to battle it out for the Italy international’s signature this summer.

When asked about the speculation over his future earlier this month, the 23-year-old insisted that moving abroad ‘doesn’t scare’ him (Corriere dello Sport). 

Carnevali has now revealed that Inter Milan have shown interest in Scamacca but suggested the striker could also be bound for the Premier League.

The Sassuolo CEO told La Gazzetta dello Sport: “Inter have shown interest in Scamacca but keep an eye on foreign clubs.

“There are lots of teams interested in Gianluca, including in the Premier League. But he still needs to develop and he might need another season here with us.”

Paratici and Conte will certainly know well of Scamacca’s attributes, given their expertise in Italian football. The 23-year-old is unlikely to be too expensive and could be content with not being a regular starter at Spurs. So, one would expect the Saussolo star to be near the top of Tottenham’s wishlist when it comes to signing a backup for Kane.
