Tottenham Hotspur signing Arthur Masuaku from West Ham United would surely make everyone involved feel disappointed.

The Sun claim that Spurs are trying to buy the West Ham United left-back.

But the transfer makes little sense to go through with for either Tottenham or West Ham.

Masuaku has been inconsistent ever since he moved to West Ham, but there is a feeling that he could be the strongest left-back in their squad.

 

Although Aaron Cresswell is a better defender, Masuaku’s ability in attack makes him a real threat down West Ham’s left.

The skilful wide-man started to come to the fore towards the end of the season, and there is excitement around West Ham that he could be a key player next term.

A move to Spurs for Masuaku would surely disappoint West Ham fans, and Tottenham supporters are unlikely to be keen on the idea either.

Spurs fans are desperate to see their side make a signing, but question marks would linger over their ambition if the £20 million full-back (Daily Star) was to arrive.

Tottenham would be taking a risk to bring in a player who has looked so defensively vulnerable during his time in England.

And Spurs would be far better off looking elsewhere if they do want to sign a left-back this summer.
