Some West Ham fans have identified Salomon Rondon and Aleksandar Mitrovic as two ideal replacements for Marko Arnautovic if the Austrian leaves this summer.
The Irons are no strangers to speculation about the 30-year-old’s future given he was also linked with a move back in January, which was ultimately unsuccessful.

Now that rumours have resurfaced that he will leave the club, supporters have begun to plot who will take his place.
One striker whomWest Ham have reportedly already been interested in is West Brom’s Salomon Rondon, who bagged 11 Premier League goals while on loan at Newcastle last season.
And the other one who those in claret and blue are getting excited about potentially joining Manuel Pellegrini’s squad is Aleksandar Mitrovic, who also scored 11 league goals with relegated Fulham during the 2018/19 campaign.
Here are some of the responses from Hammers fans:
Rondon and Mitrovic in

Sell Arnie and get Mitrovic and Rondon. Simple

If arnie goes we need three new strikers. Mitro, rondon and Husillos to work his magic and find a gem for fairly cheap I reckon

Disagree. Rondon done very well for Newcastle. I’d take Mitro & Rondon. I think he’ll go 433 with to forward CMS (lanzini and Fornals)

He’s got to go know. Disappointing for us and probably means we’ll end up having to keep Hernandez. Add this to the frustrations of the wasted time on Gomez. We really should be getting Mitrovic and Rondon now

Would honestly take £25m for Arnie at this point. £5m to Stoke for their 20% sell on clause and spend the rest on Rondon or Mitrovic job done

I’d take Mitrovic and Rondon
