Premier League Star Set For Shock Move In January
Marko Arnautovic has hinted that he might look for a move away from West Ham to live out his dream of playing Champions League football.
Arnautovic joined West Ham from Stoke for £25million last summer and is one of the Hammers best players, however, he might already be looking for a move.
The Austrian is currently on international duty and speaking to Kurier, a news organisation from his homeland, he said: "I'm 29 so that's the best age. It's clear that I want to compete with the best players. But in this affair, I totally trust my brother."
Arnautovic was reportedly a target of Manchester United in the summer but it is believed West Ham blocked the move.
The 29-year-olds brother, Danijel, is his agent and has suggested that he might leave West Ham as soon as January, talking about it, he said: "That's possible. It was already very, very close this last summer."
"He's already playing in the Premier League and that's where the best players. But for a player like Marko this cannot be the end.
"He's a big part of West Ham's team but I think it's possible to tease out more of him. For that to happen, he has to play for a top team.
"Marko is ready for the next step. A player like him should not play against relegation. He should play for the international spots.
"Marko is really enjoying playing for West Ham. He loves that club and the fans. But there is still that feeling that this cannot be the end. And everybody should understand that."
The bookies believe that Man United is the most likely destination for the Austrain forward as Jose Mourinho has previously worked with him at Inter Milan. He's currently 4/6 to join the Red Devils and we wouldn't be surprised to see him make the big move.
