Report: West Ham will be forced to sell player if he plays 13 more games this season

West Ham will reportedly be forced to sell Arthur Masuaku to Besiktas if he plays 13 more games for them this season.

That’s according to a report from NTV Spor who claim that Besiktas manager Senol Gunes actually wants to get rid of the 29-year-old in January, because of this clause.

Masuaku has been really disappointing since joining Besiktas on loan from West Ham in the summer transfer window.

And as a result, Gunes is already looking to find a replacement for the 11-capped Democratic Republic of Congo international.

The only impression that he has made out in Turkey has been a negative one by all accounts.

West Ham could be forced to sell Arthur Masuaku

Now, should the 29-year-old get back in favour with Besiktas boss Gunes, the Turkish side may well be forced to buy him.

The left-back has played 12 games for the Turkish outfit so far this season, but he suffered an injury at the start of this month.

However, should he go on to play 25 games (13 more), a clause will be activated whereby Besiktas are obligated to sign Masuaku permanently from West Ham for around €2.2 million (£2 million) according to NTV Spor.

As mentioned earlier though, it appears highly unlikely that that will happen.

And that’s a real shame for the Hammers.

Arthur Masuaku is clearly not good enough to be playing Premier League football.

And West Ham will want to sell the former Olympiacos man as soon as they can.

The good news is that he is out of contract at the London Stadium in the summer of 2023.

So worst ways, we can just release him then.
