West Ham defender Arthur Masuaku set for January exit

West Ham will allow Arthur Masuaku to leave in January provided they receive a suitable offer for him, according to Claret and Hugh.

The 27-year-old has fallen down the pecking order at the club and with Ben Johnson’s rise to prominence coupled with his versatility, David Moyes is open to letting Masuaku leave.

The report claims that Masuaku could attract a fee in the region of around £4million for the Irons.

Makes sense

There are no hard feelings between Masuaku and anyone at the club, but the fact that he’s not rated by the manager should be enough reason for him to be shown the door.

Add to that, his injury record has been far from impressive as he was ruled out for months after sustaining an injury back in April.

He has only featured twice for the Hammers since then, which is not something one would expect from a first-team player.

Getting £4million from his sale would prove to be decent business and hopefully, they can find a market for him.

Masuaku, who has been labelled “unbelievable” in the past by Slaven Bilic, could benefit from a fresh start at a new club.

Despite Johnson doing well, he’s also a backup at right-back and the club desperately need to sign a new left-back either in January or the summer as Aaron Cresswell is already 31 and not growing any younger.
