Serie A giants circling West Ham defender


Serie A giants Juventus and Napoli are circling West Ham star Arthur Masuaku as both look to prize the DR Congo away from East London this January, reports Calcio Napoli.

Masuaku has failed to hold down a regular place at the London Stadium this season, however that has not deterred the Italian duo from placing their interest in the former Olympiakos man.

Both AC Milan and Genoa are also thought to be keeping an eye on his situation.

Napoli lost first-choice left-back Faouzi Ghoulam to a cruciate knee ligament injury that could rule the Algeria international out for the season, and hence will look to Masuaku as a replacement for the remainder of the campaign.

Juventus on the other hand are looking to bolster their squad, and with rumours that Alex Sandro could be on his way out of the club after the New Year, are already eyeing replacements.

Masukau joined the Hammers in the summer of 2016 for a fee of around £6.2 million, however has made only 23 appearances in Claret and Blue so far.
