That is really bad news for the Hammers.

The 27-year-old underwent knee surgery back in December.

At the time, it was though that Masuaku would miss around 6-8 weeks of action (Claret and Hugh).

Arthur Masuaku joined West Ham from Olympiacos in the summer of 2016 for around £6 million (Sky Sports).

It took the Hammers four years before they utilised him in his correct position, however!

The 27-year-old was brilliant for West Ham during the first third of the season.

David Moyes deployed him in the left wing-back role and his ability to travel with the ball made a huge difference to the way in which the Hammers progressed up the pitch.

West Ham fans may have to wait until mid-April to see Arthur Masuaku in action again

Losing him in December was a huge blow for West Ham. In fairness to Moyes and the team, however, they have coped admirably without Arthur.

That isn’t to say that Moyes won’t be desperate to get the Democratic Republic of Congo international back fit as soon as possible.

Claret and Hugh have claimed that West Ham will have to wait a little longer before that happens, however.

Masuaku has a mid-April date pencilled in for his return to action at the London Stadium.

Let’s hope that he comes back in fine form. West Ham need Arthur back ASAP.

A fit and fully firing Masuaku could make a huge difference for the Hammers during the final six or seven games.
