WEST HAM transfer target Gianluca Scamacca’s father is alleged to have DIRTYED Roma stars’ cars rampage at a training ground.
The Hammers have placed a £34m bid for the Sassuolo star.
Boss Moyes is keen to add a big-name center forward this summer.
And now he’s battling French powerhouse Paris Saint-Germain for his signature.
However, it was as early as May 2021 when reports surfaced that Scamacca’s father was arrested after he stormed Roma’s training ground and allegedly smashed cars with an iron bar.
The forward was part of Roma youth team from 2012 to 2015 but never made it into the first team.
The man, dubbed Emiliano Scamacca by Italian newspaper Gazetta, appeared to be wearing a Sassuolo sweatshirt.
According to reports, he entered the sports center and went straight to the parking lot.
He is then said to have smashed the windows of “four or five cars” – one of which belonged to Roma’s sporting director Tiago Pinto.
Scamacca Sr. then went to a field where youth players were training, causing coaches and footballers to panic.

The police took up the incident minutes later and arrested the footballer’s father.
Scamacca, the player, told Gazzetta.it afterwards: “I’m really shocked by what happened and what I read. I really don’t know how to explain it.
“It hurts me to talk about it, but maybe it’s necessary. My father hasn’t lived with my mother for a long time.
“They are not divorced because they never married. I was raised by my mother and my sister. you are my family
“We only have occasional contact. I see him very rarely. But this is a family issue that I prefer to keep to myself, so I’m asking people to respect my privacy.”
He added: “My father has never had anything to do with my career, especially in recent years.
“I’m very disappointed and shocked by what happened, but I’ve had so little contact with my father that I really don’t know what to say.”
Sassuolo bosses say they have received an offer of almost £30m from PSG but have yet to accept it.
Now West Ham is said to have made a bigger offer.
