West Ham to sell Masuaku, only lasted a year

West Ham United are ready to cut their losses on Arthur Masuaku this summer and will sell him just a year after he joined from Olympiacos, The Daily Mirror reports.

What’s the word?

West Ham spent £6m to bring Arthur Masuaku to the Premier League last summer but the Hammers now seem to be set to let the full-back leave for a fraction of that price, with the 23-year-old enduring a poor debut season at the London Stadium.

Having not featured for West Ham since a 5-1 drubbing at the hands of Arsenal in December, Masuaku’s future in East London is looking bleak but the Hammers will have to accept a financial deficit as Olympiakos, who hold first refusal on the player, won’t match the figure they received last summer.

However, they could snub a move altogether and opt for a cheaper alternative.

What’s the other option?

Olympiakos currently have Juan Carlos Paredes on-loan from Watford and are looking to tie up a permanent deal for the Ecuadorian international, which would be a cheaper option for the Greek side and one that’s easier to negotiate.

For West Ham, it leaves them even more short-handed as they will have to find another suitor for Masuaku – and that could mean they get an even smaller fee for the French defender.
