Arthur Masuaku’s West Ham future in serious doubt

|

Arthur Masuaku, currently on loan at Turkish Super Lig outfit Besiktas, may have played his last game for the club.

What’s the word?

That is according to a report from CaughtOffside, who have relayed ExWHUemployee’s words from “The West Ham Way podcast.”

The relayed quote from Ex, as per CaughtOffside, stated this: “It really seems like he’s kind of found his level out in Turkey and I wouldn’t be surprised if they were to try to sign him at the end of the season.

“I think he’s got one more year left on his contract at West Ham, but I wouldn’t be surprised if, by the way he’s doing at Besiktas, that they look to take him on permanently,”

“World Class” Masuaku

According to a certain Joe Cole, as per BT Sport, the DR Congo international is a “world class player.” But, jokes aside, the 28-year-old has found his feet so far with Besiktas, having made seven starts, garnering two assists along the way.

In the same amount of games as West Ham have played, Masuaku has created ten chances, which would sees him top the charts in the Besiktas squad, and would see him do the same in the Hammers squad alongside Aaron Cresswell, who has been equally as impressive in this metric.

Amidst a wondrous start from Masuaku, who has adapted well to  Turkish football, and the Hammers’ summer acquisition of former Chelsea star Emerson, it would appear that the 7-cap DR Congo international has played his last game for the London Stadium side, with Besiktas boss Valerian Ismael almost certain to activate the option to buy, which was agreed within the loan deal.

David Moyes could most certainly make use of the star upon his return to the club next season, especially in the midst of some over-reliance on 32-year-old Cresswell, though it now remains doubtful, with Masuaku embedding himself well into Ismael’s starting XI.
