According to reliable West Ham insider ExWHUemployee, Arthur Masuaku will not be sold unless a ‘ridiculous’ offers comes in for the left-back.
Turkish media outlet Fotospor claimed a couple of days ago that Fenerbahce want to sign the West Ham man this month.
Masuaku has been incredibly inconsistent during his time at the London Stadium, however.
He is somewhat of a liability defensively, and often flatters to deceive when he plays.
The Democratic Republic of Congo international has impressed on the rare occasion when he has been deployed further forward as a left winger.
It could be argued that Masuaku is actually more suited to playing as a left wing-back in a 3-5-2 system. And that is one reason why Ex suggests the former Olympiacos man will not be sold this month:
Masuaku will not be sold! Moyes is very keen on the player and unless a ridiculous offer comes in for him. He see him as a good left wing back with Cresswell potentially being used as a centre back again in the future as well.

If true, this will split the Hammers fanbase.
Masuaku is an incredibly frustrating player to watch. And in truth, he just hasn’t done enough in the three-and-a-half years that he has been at West Ham.
Aaron Cresswell isn’t the best himself. But he is certainly ahead of the 26-year-old in the current pecking order.
And perhaps the Hammers would actually be better off selling Masuaku this month, if they receive a decent fee for his services.
Of course, if this were to happen, David Moyes would have to bring in an upgrade immediately. Otherwise it would not be worth selling the Congolese defender in the first place. Whether any bids will actually come in for him, however, remains to be seen.
