No Way Back for Masuaku

By Gonzo

Hammers defender Arthur Masuaku is currently on loan at Turkish side Besiktas.

The 29-year-old has done reasonably well since moving to Turkey, and recent reports claim that Besiktas  look certain to exercise their option to sign the player permanently at the end of the current campaign.

It is evident that Masuaku does not have a future at West Ham, and therefore a permanent move away from the The London Stadium would be ideal for him.

Arthur needs to play regularly at this stage of his career, and Besiktas can certainly provide him with that opportunity in the coming seasons. The Turkish outfit have the option to sign him permanently for a fee of just £2 million.

Masuaku has has blown hot and cold (mostly cold) since his move to West Ham in 2016 and the club will be delighted to get him off their books at the end of the season.

Despite being decent enough going forward, the wing-backs defensive ability was questioned regularly before his move to Turkey. His poor positioning, defensive acumen and lack of concentration were a major problems for David Moyes during his time at the club, but he seems to have improved since the move to Turkey.
