West Ham United fans digest rumours club are willing to offload Arnautovic

Marko Arnautovic took time to settle in at West Ham United when he signed from Stoke City last summer.

However, when David Moyes took over from Slaven Bilic as manager in November, the Austrian began playing as the focal point of attack, and the goals came.

In total, Arnautovic scored 11 times in 31 Premier League matches and he also created six assists.

The 29-year-old swiftly became one of the team’s most important players, and even kept Javier Hernandez out of his favoured position.

This summer, the Hammers have been busy in the transfer window, recruiting seven new faces, the most recent of which being Felipe Anderson.

The Brazilian provides West Ham’s new boss Manuel Pellegrini a different dimension in attack, and due to his arrival, questions have been raised over Arnautovic’s future.

According to a report in Italian publication Leggo on Tuesday, the East London outfit are open to selling the Austrian, who is believed to be interested in a move to Roma.

The news has shocked some West Ham fans on Reddit, while others have taken the speculation with a pinch of salt.
