Report claims £6.2 million West Ham man could be sold in the summer transfer window

West Ham United allegedly could try to sell Arthur Masuaku during the summer transfer window.

That’s according to a report from French publication L’Equipe who claim that Hammers boss David Moyes actually tried to move him on during the January transfer window.

The 28-year-old joined West Ham from Olympiacos in the summer of 2016 for around £6.2 million (The Times).

Then Hammers manager Slaven Bilic brought Masuaku to the London Stadium and he was expected to be a big hit at the club.

The Democratic Republic of Congo international is poor in possession and has looked rather lost over the last few years.

His decision making is truly horrendous and when Moyes plays him at left-back, he always seems like a disaster waiting to happen. And the Hammers boss has apparently run of out of patience with Masuaku.

According to a report from L’Equipe, Moyes was trying to sell the 28-year-old in January in order to acquire the funds to bring in Paris Saint-Germain ace Layvin Kurzawa.

And the Scot may well try again in the summer.

He is a total liability when played at left-back. The 28-year-old is the kind of player who Moyes should be looking to move on.

The Congolese Hammer is still under contract at the London Stadium until he summer of 2024. So we should be able to get a decent fee for his services in the summer.

Left-back is certainly an area where Moyes needs to strengthen at the end of the season.

And moving Masuaku on whilst bringing in someone like Layvin Kurzawa from PSG would undoubtedly be a big upgrade for West Ham.
