Besiktas are trying to sign Arthur Masuaku on the cheap from West Ham United ahead of the summer transfer window.

That’s according to Sabah who claim that Besiktas are trying to sign the 29-year-old Hammers left-back for just €1.2 million (£1 million) rather than the €2.2 million (£1.9 million) purchase option they have.

However, he never made any kind of positive impact for the Hammers, and was shipped out from the London Stadium on loan to Besiktas in the summer of 2022.

It seems as though Masuaku’s time in East London is all but over. But how much will he eventually leave for?

The Turkish giants want to sign Arthur Masuaku permanently, but are only willing to pay around £1 million for his signature.

The option they agreed with West Ham to sign him was closer to £2 million (Sabah).

Now, in my opinion, Hammers boss David Moyes should be shipping Masuaku out as a matter of urgency, regardless of the fee we get for him.

In fact, I would go as far as saying we should even be prepared to lose him on a free transfer if need be.

The left-back’s poor concentration levels and shocking positional awareness have cost the Hammers on numerous occasions over the years.

The sooner we get rid of him the better in my opinion.

And if that means West Ham losing him for just £1 million to Besiktas in the summer transfer window, then so be it.
