Both Crystal Palace and West Ham have made an enquiry for striker Marko Arnautovic.
According to Il Resto del Carlino, cited by Sports Witness, both Palace and the Hammers have ‘already made an enquiry’ for the 32-year-old and ‘would represent a threat’ to Bologna’s chances of landing the Austrian.
And, as to be expected, the transfer update has had plenty of Eagles fans talking on social media.
Arnautovic, who currently plies his trade with Shanghai SIPG, is expected to leave the Chinese Super League in the summer following a government crackdown on spending.
The former West Ham forward has scored 20 goals in 38 appearances for Shanghai. He made the move to China in a deal worth £22.5m back in 2019, but it seems as if a return to Europe could be on the cards.
Should Crystal Palace sign Arnautovic?
Palace fans react
These Palace fans weren’t happy at the links, with on describing Arnautovic as a ‘washed’ forward.
“Why would we do this?? Like really tho…why??”
“Another washed player on extortionate wages, perfect”
“Cool, let’s blow our budget on the Austrian Adebayor”
“How many more overpaid underachievers are we going to be linked with? And why is it always West Ham?”
