Insider details major Tottenham update on reported £20m hunt for dazzling wide-man
Tottenham are not looking to sign Arthur Masuaku from West Ham in the summer transfer window, according to a reliable club insider.
Hammers insider ExEHUemployee, who has consistently revealed major news from inside the London Stadium, claimed on his personal Twitter account on Thursday there is no truth in a report from the Sun that claims Spurs are eyeing up a move for the £20million-rated wide-man.
It is understood that even if Tottenham were interested in signing Masuaku, 24, West Ham would not consider selling him to one of their London rivals.

Masuaku has been in dazzling form for the Hammers this season making 27 appearances in all competitions and scoring one goal.
He is a left-back by trade but has played a lot on the wing this term.
With Masuaku in the squad, West Ham have not lost a Premier League game since before Christmas.

The Sun reported that Spurs are eyeing him up as a potential replacement for Danny Rose.
Football Insider verdict
Spurs fans are probably happy that the club is not actually looking to sign a West Ham player, but Masuaku is certainly someone that they would be lucky to have in their side. Masuaku’s form is perhaps a strong reason as to why the Hammers are not in the relegation zone at the moment with them looking unbeatable when the DR Congo international is on the pitch. With Danny Rose linked with leaving North London, Masuaku would be a good replacement and would do a good job of rotating with Ben Davies. There are of course better options out there, but Masuaku would still be a solid signing.
