Frenchman Masuaku, who joined in the summer of 2016 from Greek giants Olympiakos, has struggled to make much of an impact at the London Stadium with England international Aaron Cresswell preferred at left-back.
Masuaku made a public denial of the claims, insisting he did not know the man claiming to represent him.
In order to avoid any misunderstandings i’d like to stress out that neither me or my agent (Panos Galariotis) know mr. from Italy... So everything that is published is completely false.— Arthur Masuaku (@ArthurMasuaku) November 13, 2017
I’m only focused on helping my team achieve its goals.
Boasting speed and a wicked crossing ability, Masuaku has been unable to show the Hammers fans his best as he fails to gather any kind of momentum or consistency due to a number of injuries.
However, making six appearances this campaign, Masuaku has caught the eye with two assists and now Napoli are said to be considering a move for the Hammers' number 26.
West Ham fans reacted in divide fashion on Twitter, with some sections of the London Stadium faithful claiming he simply is not good enough and that he should be sold.
Some fans, though, would rather keep him or gather in "£15million at least", if the possibility was available.
