Tottenham Hotspur fans are not interested in their club pursuing a possible deal for West Ham United forward Marko Arnautovic this month.
Arnautovic is keen to leave the Hammers in January for the Chinese Super League, where he would receive incredible wages.
Tottenham certainly do not pay as well as the major clubs in China, but Arnautovic would be open to a move across London, according to Jonathan Walters.
Walters played with Arnautovic at Stoke City and the Burnley forward has told BBC Sport that Tottenham should move for his former teammate this month.
Spurs are very light in attack with Harry Kane facing a spell on the sidelines due to an ankle problem.
However, it would be fair to say that the London club’s fans are not interested in signing 77-time Austria international Arnautovic from their bitter rivals.
The 29-year-old has scored 19 times in 53 appearances for West Ham since arriving from Stoke, but is not wanted at Tottenham by the fans.

We would never pay the wages he would get over there and that is all he’s after.

No thanks….as good a player as he is, he is definitely one of those “stepping stone” players who would see us as step in the right direction to a “bigger” club.

We should be aiming higher than Arnautovic; he only looks decent cause West Ham are terrible

Arnautovic is moody, sulks, all about him, in fact he is a melt. All the things Poch hates. Dont matter how good he is, a players character is No1 priority with Poch. Walters clearly doesnt have a clue how THFC operate
