The agent of West Ham full back Arthur Masuaku has dismissed reports that Roma have made contact with the player.
Francesco Lingenti had previously claimed that Italy's Serie A was a likely destination for the defender, but the agent has now denied claims linking the Frenchman with Roma.
Football Italia quote Lingenti as telling the Italian press: “So far no, there has been no offer, just a few requests for information. There’s nothing concrete at the moment."
Lingenti also hinted at the sort of asking price West Ham are expecting for Masuaku, claiming: “West Ham are asking for a lot of money to let him leave, around €20-22m, and he has a very high salary even for the Premier League."
That, Lingenti believes, makes a deal unlikely, as he concluded: “It would be a very difficult operation to conclude. I have spoken to [Roma director of sport] Monchi, but not about Masuaku. There is nothing to report.”
Masuaku has been a regular feature for West Ham this season, making 24 appearances and scoring once in a 3-0 League Cup win over Bolton Wanderers.
Despite being born in France and playing for both the French Under-18 and Under-19 teams, Masuaku was called up by the Democratic Republic of Congo for two World Cup qualifying games in August 2017, though he failed to make an appearance in either fixture.
