A near £24 million summer signing from Stoke City, Mark Hughes will be rubbing his hands with glee that he managed to secure such a large fee for the Austrian.
The winger has been terrible since making the move to London, with the biggest impact made so far a red card for elbowing Southampton’s Jack Stephens in the Hammers 3-2 loss to the Saints at St Mary’s.
It looks unlikely Arnautovic will come good, and Bilic may just have to take a hit on the temperamental forward.
Whether or not another manager is brave enough to take a punt on the player however, remains to be seen.
