Newly-promoted Fulham are keen to sign West Ham United defender Arthur Masuaku in the summer transfer window.

That’s according to high-level club insiders Claret and Hugh who suggest that his ex-Olympiacos boss Marco Silva is keen to bring him to Fulham this summer.

Masuaku joined West Ham from Olympiacos in the summer of 2016 for around £6.2 million (The Times).

He has really impressed at times for the Hammers but he has disappointed in equal measure and if we’re being honest, there has been far more of the latter than the former.

David Moyes clearly doesn’t trust Masuaku in the left-back role and it seems as though he could now be set for a summer transfer away from the London Stadium…

Masuaku could be moved on in the summer transfer window

Claret and Hugh reckon that the 28-year-old could be shipped out of the London Stadium this summer along with Ryan Fredericks.

Fulham are allegedly keen to sign Fredericks on a free transfer whilst Masuaku could cost around £5 million.

Aaron Cresswell and Ben Johnson are both well ahead of the 28-year-old in the left-back pecking order at the London Stadium.

It could even be argued that youngster Emmanuel Longelo is a better option than the former Olympiacos man.

David Moyes absolutely should sell Masuaku if he can this summer.

Whilst West Ham will probably be lucky to get £5 million for the 11-capped Democratic Republic of Congo international, moving him on for a small fee would be a very sensible move this summer.

Moyes could and should be looking for someone far more suited to playing Premier League football than Arthur Masuaku at the end of this season.

And selling Masuaku in the summer transfer window would be a move in the right direction for West Ham.
