Italy coach Roberto Mancini says Gianluca Scamacca will need time to adjust to the Premier League at West Ham.
The Italian international has started only one League game this season after a big money move to east London over the course of the summer and is yet to find the back of the net.
Speaking to reporters, the former Manchester City boss said: “I spoke to Scamacca.
“He went to a difficult league.
“I think it will take him some time to adapt. It takes some time to become familiar with the pace of the Premier League, but it is a choice that can help him improve.”
