Boss Moyes is desperate to add a big name centre-forward this summer.

And now he is battling French powerhouse Paris Saint-Germain for his signature.

However, it was back in May 2021 when reports emerged Scamacca’s father was arrested after he stormed into Roma’s training ground and allegedly smashed cars with an iron bar.

The forward was part of Roma’s youth set-up between 2012-15 but never made it as far as the first team.

The man, who was named as Emiliano Scamacca by Gazetta, was apparently wearing a Sassuolo sweatshirt.

Reports say that he entered the sports centre and headed straight for the car park.

He then allegedly destroyed the windows ‘of four or five cars’ – one of them belonging to Roma’s sporting director Tiago Pinto.

Scamacca Sr then went over to a pitch where youth players were training, with coaches and the footballers sent into a panic.


Police attended the incident minutes later and arrested the footballer’s father.

Scamacca the player told Gazzetta.it afterwards: “I am badly shaken by what happened and what I read. I really don’t know how to explain it.

“It is painful for me to talk about this, but perhaps it is necessary. My father has not lived with my mother for a very long time.

“They aren’t divorced, because they never married. I was raised by my mother and my sister. They are my family. 

“We only have an occasional relationship. I see him very rarely. But this is a family issue that I prefer to keep to myself, so I ask people to respect my privacy.”

He added: “My father has never had anything to do with my career, especially in recent years.

“I am very disappointed and shaken by what happened, but I have such minimal contact with my father, I really wouldn’t know what to say.”

Sassuolo chiefs say that they have received a bid of nearly £30m from PSG but have yet to accept.

Now West Ham are also believed to have made an offer larger than that amount.
