West Ham will reportedly listen to offers for technically-gifted defender

West Ham United are open to selling Arthur Masuaku in the summer transfer window, according to The Daily Mail.

It has been reported that Masuaku is among a number of players West Ham will listen to offers for.

Manuel Lanzini, Felipe Anderson and Jack Wilshere are among the players named in the report who are for sale.

West Ham United spell

Masuaku has been on the books of West Ham since the summer of 2016 when he joined from Greek giants Olympiakos.

The 26-year-old is a left-back by trade, but he has operated as a left-sided midfielder on occasions as well, with West Ham’s official website describing him as a ‘technically-gifted’ player.

According to WhoScored, the DR Congo international left-back made 10 starts and seven substitute appearances in the Premier League for West Ham during the 2019-20 campaign, providing one assist in the process.

During the 2018-19 campaign, the left-back made 19 starts and four substitute appearances in the league for the Hammers, providing one assist in the process, according to WhoScored.

West Ham United exit?

Masuaku has made mistakes from time to time at left-back, and if West Ham are able to sell him and sign a better player for the position, then it would be sensible.

Personally I think Masuaku would be more suited to a central midfield role. He is mobile, gets his foot in and his ability on the ball and his skill would help us retain possession. Just my opinion tho.

Re: Sunday newspapers (includes West Ham)
Didn't we have him and Antonio as fullbacks for a while? Might as well put Lanzini in goal.

Thank you most kindly Mr Alan.

Arthur Masuaku has NEVER been a "defender". He's a winger. Another chap who WHU have paid millions, while not even understanding what he can do. Christ!

Technically gifted, except at defending.

I agree with that list of players for sale. Good decisions being made by? Moyes? I would be a bit sad to see Lanzini go though.
Thanks Alan
