I think he has similarities to Edin Dzeko I think. His scoring record leaves a lot to be desired but if he was scoring 20 league goals he’d be more expensive 🤷🏽‍♂️🤷🏽‍♂️🤷🏽‍♂️

Some food for thoughts: Scamacca has scored a goal every 115 minutes so far, whereas Vlahovic has scored a goal every 109 minutes. Lautaro has scored every 112 minutes so far. So Scamacca is up there considering the goal scoring stats this season.

Sure his goal scoring stats have only been somewhat reasonable only this season, but buying a proven scorer seems to not be in our reach, so somehow we have to go for the gamble.

Also I‘d like the sceptic lots to remember a certain Mauro Icardi we transferred after only scoring 10 goals for Sampdoria.

Scamacca is typical Beppe Marotta transfer. Huge talent, Italian, and low salary.

Vlahovic is typical City, Madrid, or PSG transfer, he is kinda out of reach for us.

In our management eyes, Italian players more luxurious than foregin players.

Icardi was 20 years old, was a 13m signing and was a prolific goal scorer at primavera one year before his outbreak season at Sampdoria. Scamacca is 23, he hasn't been prolific at any level and he's linked with a 40m move. No one would mind Scamacca if we was a teenager or if we were talking about a 20-25m move. And before someone brings it up, yes. You can add counterparts but if the guy fails the only thing that is going to matter is his 40m book value, not how much cash you paid.

Icardi was cheaper and younger, also atleast had a 19 goal Primavera season.

This is just wrong. Book value is one thing but it's not the only thing. Cash flow is important for Inter these days and getting favourable loan deal with cash part being "not too high" is a factor for sure.

I guess the comparables to Scamacca are Jonathan David perhaps? I can't think of other names. Thuram? Eh. Raspadori perhaps too but his profile is a lot different. Any names from outside Italy will be cash only so we need to factor that in too.

And when it comes to Vlahovic, Marotta tried last summer. Rumor was we offered 50m€ but Commisso obviously wasn't having any of that. Vlahovic is indeed on a different league and he's out of our reach for sure without an ownership change.

How exactly is it wrong? Is it wrong book value is the most important thing when you want to offload a player? If he fails there's no market for him and we're stuck with him for years.

Book value is crucial when selling the player yes. But there is a difference if the payment is 20m or 40m in cash. Clubs love cash, players love cash. You always need cash, to run a football club. By including players, you make plusvalenza for yourself and save cash for other stuff.

Having as less book value for the player as possible in a deal to mitigate the risks if the player flops is IMO wrong way to think about a deal. If there are serious thoughts of such risks, you don't do that deal at all. I'm giving our management the benefit of the doubt in this case.

40 million for this dude? Just sign Dybala for 10 million a season he wants. Less of a gamble than 40 million on this dude plus 3-5 million wages.

Unless it’s we give them 7 youth players + money.

I get people hate Immobile because of his performances with national team but he isn't shit. He has his limitations but he can score goals. Immobile was a capocannoniere with freaking Torino. It's not like he was a nobody who was suddenly turned into a prolific scorer by Inzaghi. Now he's also good with Sarri so it certainly isn't a coach thing. He just had two bad spells abroad. It happens.

On the other hand, Scamacca hasn't scored double digit number of league goals in a season at any level. Primavera, Eredivisie, Serie B, Serie A. Perhaps he will suddenly turn into a 20 goal forward but the guy is a gamble. And an expensive one.

I never said he was shit but I stand by my point that Inzaghi got the best out of him.

Get us Immobile. How much would he cost? I don't care about his spells abroad or with NT, I need him to scores goal in Serie A.

Why would they get Inzaghi that injury prone Argentinian instead of Immobile?

Its crazy how we now have to talk about players in accounting terms.

When really, a couple of simple questions should be asked;

Does he have what it takes to come to Inter (Potential)?
Will he make this team better? (Quality)

If yes, then we sign him if the deal fits within whatever cheap skate budget Zhang has provided almighty Beppe

Could be a thing. We need a striker anyway, so if we have the money for a more permanent move, sure, go for it :D
