West Ham United left-back Arthur Masuaku is allegedly a transfer target for Fulham ahead of the summer transfer window.
That’s according to a report from the Daily Mail who claim that the 28-year-old Hammer is one of six summer transfer targets for Fulham boss Marco Silva.

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…
Fulham eye summer transfer window swoop for Masuaku
The Daily Mail reckon that the 11-capped DR Congo international is a transfer target for Marco Silva.
And with Arthur barely getting any game-time with the Hammers, a move to Craven Cottage could well be on the cards for him this summer.
If we could get a decent transfer fee for Masuaku, Moyes absolutely should sell him.
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.
Whilst West Ham probably won’t get anywhere near the £6.2 million that we paid for him six years ago, 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.
The 28-year-old is the Hammers’ sixth longest serving player behind Mark Noble, Aaron Cresswell, Angelo Ogbonna, Manuel Lanzini, and Michail Antonio.
It seems as though he won’t become our fifth longest servant when Mark Noble hangs up his boots in the summer though.
