West Ham left back Arthur Masuaku is poised to leave the club in January with Serie A the most likely destination, according to the defender's agent Francesco Lingenti.
Lingenti has claimed that three sides from Serie A are currently monitoring the Frenchman, with Napoli and Juventus favourites for the defender's signature, reported by Football Italia

"Serie A is our objective and hopefully he'll be there in January. For now, Juventus, Napoli and Genoa are in the lead. However, he'd only go to Juventus if the Bianconeri sold Alex Sandro."
Napoli would be ideal for the Frenchman, with the club in excellent form and a recent injury to left-back
If Masuaku is to be sold, West Ham are said to be holding out for a larger sum than that of what they paid for the Frenchman in 2016.
@AdamGawthrop Zaza, Feghouli, Masuaku, Tore, Nordveit. Every single one of them not good enough. Poor transfer window.— ⚒ Forever West Ham ⚒ (@ForeverWestHam4) November 30, 2016
"West Ham’s asking price is around €9-10m, as they paid €7m to get him from Olympiakos in 2016."
The move would favor both sides if the deal went through, as Masuaku has not had the best of times at the London Stadium, with Aaron Cresswell being preferred for the majority of the games.
As for West Ham, if they were to lose Masuaku they would be in the hunt for a replacement left-back with Aaron Cresswell the only recognized left full in the team.
