It is being reported that West Ham are making a move for Olympiakos left-back Arthur Masuaku.

SDNA in Greece is reporting that the French defender is on the verge of sealing a move to the club. They claim that the 22-year-old talent flew into London this morning in order to finalise the details of a move and to undergo a medical with the Hammers.

The deal is rumoured to be in the region of €10 million (£8.5 million) although ESPN report that the move is more likely to be nearer the £6 million region.

West Ham have been looking for a new left-back all summer but the search was recently intensified with the injury suffered by their only natural left-back on the books, Aaron Cresswell.

West Ham were on the brink of signing Inter Milan defender Davide Santon on loan last week but the deal collapsed after he failed a medical at the club.

Masuaku, who joined the Greek side from Valenciennes in 2014, is a former French under-19 international who has been linked with a move to the Premier League previously.

West Ham, according to Sky Sports, have also agreed a fee with Swansea City for forward Andre Ayew. He will undergo a medical and complete a £20 million move as soon as The Swans tie down a deal for Atletico Madrid striker Borja Baston.
