West Ham fans are absolutely furious after a report in the Sun claimed Arthur Masuaku is a target for Tottenham.
According to the report, Chelsea and Monaco are also interested in the fantastic Frenchman, but Tottenham are determined to sign him for £20m as they seek a replacement for the outgoing Danny Rose.
There hasn’t been much to cheer about for Hammers’ fans this season, but the emergence of Masuaku as a wonderful wing back has certainly been one of the bright spots.
The 24 year-old struggled as a full back when he arrived in London, but since being given more license to roam forward he has been phenomenal for the Hammers.
Masuaku has three assists in just 16 league starts, and is completing a superb 3.2 dribbles per game while also pitching in 2.3 tackles and one interception per game.
Tottenham seems like the perfect fit for the flying Frenchman, but it doesn’t seem like West ham fans are going to let that happen.
Fans are incensed by the reports linking him with Spurs, mainly due to the quoted price of £20m, and some of the best Twitter reactions can be found below…

It should be a no just because it's spurs. Haven't spurs sabotaged some deals before when we have wanted their players. Tell Levy to do one.
