HYS: Should West Ham make another bid for Marko Arnautovic?

According to reports from Sky Sports, Marko Arnautovic has handed in a transfer request at Stoke City, citing what he sees as a lack of ambition from the Bet365 Stadium outfit.

The Austrian international is one of the Potters’ key players, depended on to provide creativity and goal threat in the final third.

The 28-year-old bagged an impressive eleven goals during the 2015/16 season but couldn’t match that total last time out, scoring six times as Stoke finished the campaign in 13th place.


West Ham are known to be on the lookout for added firepower this summer and although Arnautovic isn’t necessarily the central striker the Irons crave, he could certainly do a job there until better options become available.

In fact, BBC Sport claim the Irons have already seen a bid rejected for the 62-cap international, who Transfermarkt value at £12.75million. So, Hammers fans, should your club table an improved offer? Let us know by voting below…
