West Ham have completed the signing of 22 year old left back Arthur Masuaku from Olympiakos. The former France Under-19 international won two Greek Superleague titles, as well as the Greek Cup, during his two-year stint at the club, who signed Masuaku after he impressed after breaking into the Valenciennes side as a teenager.
Signing a left back had become a top priority for Slaven Bilic and the West Ham board, following the injury to Aaron Cresswell in a pre-season friendly.
“It’s a big honour for me to be part of this club,” Masuaku told West Ham’s official website. “I was speaking with my agent about some opportunities, but when he told me about West Ham and also the coach, I didn’t think twice, so in my mind, it was West Ham.
“Now, to be able to play with players like Dimitri Payet, I was thinking on the way here, it’s going to be crazy. I can’t wait to play with him and also all the rest of the team.”
It is thought that Masuaku signed for around £6m.
Welcome to West Ham, Arthur!
