West Ham fans react to reports that Marko Arnautovic wants to leave the club

Austrian newspaper Kurier has sent some West Ham fans into meltdown as they report that Marko Arnautovic feels he is currently at the point in his career where he should be playing in the Champions League.

The former Stoke City man has become a talisman at the London Stadium as he leads the line and reaps the rewards of playing more centrally – the Austrian has scored five goals and assisted another in ten Premier League appearances this season.

Joining the Hammers in summer 2017 for a fee of £20m, the 6ft 4in forward has become the first-choice striker and it would be a massive blow to his side if he were to up sticks any time soon, especially as Manuel Pellegrini’s project seems to be finally coming to fruition.

The 29-year-old was linked with a switch to Manchester United in the summer and Jose Mourinho could be tempted into another approach for the player – whom he worked with at Inter Milan – after these reports have surfaced.

Here’s how the West Ham faithful reacted on Twitter.
