Turkish club set to sign West Ham loan star permanently

Turkish club Besiktas are reportedly ready to sign West Ham United loan star Arthur Masuaku permanently. 

The 29-year-old joined the Super Lig club last summer for the 2022-23 season. He has made 22 appearances, netting two goals. 

According to journalist Gokmen Ozcan, Besiktas are prepared to trigger the option to buy in the player’s loan deal.

They will pay the €2.2 million fee to the Hammers in four instalments. The left-back will earn €1.3m per year for the next three years.

A great move for West Ham flop

Masuaku joined West Ham from Greek club Olympiacos in 2016 for around €7m. 

However, he failed to establish himself as a regular at the London Stadium, making only 128 senior appearances during his six years. 

The Hammers decided to loan him out last summer, and the move has worked out well for him. 

He has played a key role for Besiktas, who are currently third in the Super Lig standings. 

The left-back has started 21 league matches this season, contributing three goals and two assists.

He scored in the Black Eagles’ 2-0 win over Istanbul Basaksehir at the weekend. 

The DR Congo international has been averaging 1.8 tackles, 0.9 interceptions and 1.5 dribbles per game while boasting almost 80 percent passing accuracy. 

Masuaku was stagnating at the London Stadium, but he has reignited his career in Turkey.
