Marko Arnautovic dismisses Manchester United speculation

10 June 2018

According to a report by Daily Mirror, West Ham United are stepping up their efforts to keep hold of Marko Arnautovic beyond the summer transfer window.

The Austrian, who is preparing for the World Cup in Russian Federation, has been repeatedly linked with a move to Manchester United this summer, with Jose Mourinho casting his eye over an global warm-up game last month.

Arnautovic joined West Ham from Stoke City last summer in a club record-club £25m deal.

Arnautovic has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford after enjoying a brilliant season for West Ham in the Premier League.

Pressed for an update on his situation by Sky Sports Austria, he said: "I am happy with my job".

The Red Devils are unwilling to meet West Ham's £60m asking price for Arnautovic and value the attacker at around £35m. Whatever happens will happen. "I've never heard anything", Arnautovic is quoted as saying.

"That's why I can not say anything about it".

The Daily Mirror is reporting that West Ham United are determined to keep hold of the Austria global this summer and have placed a mammoth price-tag on him to ward off interest from interested clubs.

However, it is unlikely that Mourinho would sign either player if United were able to land Gareth Bale this summer.

Arnautovic offers plenty of versatility among his ability to find the back of the net, with the ability to play as a lone forward or in an attacking wide role either side of a focal number nine.
