Report: Napoli interested in West Ham defender Arthur Masuaku

Napoli have reportedly joined the hunt for West Ham defender Arthur Masuaku.

According to a report from Foot Mercato, the DR Congo international has emerged as a possible target for the Serie A club, who could sell Faouzi Ghoulam.

Apparently contact has already been made with Masuaku’s representatives.

Masukau, 26, has been with the Hammer since 2016 following a transfer from Greek giants Olympiacos.

The ace has made 86 appearances for the club to date, and is continually in competition with Aaron Cresswell for a place in the starting XI.

 

The Masuaku exit links come just months after he signed a new contract until 2024 that includes the option for two more years.

Also interested reportedly interested in the left-back is Marseille.

TBR’s view – West Ham should wait till summer

West Ham shouldn’t be thinking of selling Masuaku mid-season, as there is a risk that any replacement might not hit the ground running or pose a good enough challenge to Cresswell.

The Irons should therefore wait until the end of the season before deciding whether to get rid.

As suspect as £6.2 million signing Masuaku (BBC Sport) can be sometimes defensively, he does offer a fair attacking threat and is surely worth keeping around if West Ham are to fight for their Premier League status.
