West Ham United: GSB ‘dreaming’ of signing Marko Arnautovic this summer - West Ham Transfer Rumours

According to a report by Il Resto del Carlino, via Sport Witness, GSB and West Ham United are ‘dreaming’ of signing former striker Marko Arnautovic this summer and are ‘on his trail’ along with Crystal Palace and Bologna.

West Ham ‘dreaming’ of Arnautovic

Arnautovic, who scored 22 goals and assisted 12 others over 65 appearances for West Ham over his last spell (Transfermarkt), could now return to Europe in the summer two years after departing east London for the Chinese Super League.

Can you name all 10 of these former West Ham players? Let's get started! Who is this with Nobes?

Bologna have apparently already held talks with the Austrian’s representatives but this report claims they will face stern competition to sign Arnautovic from both the Irons and Palace.

It is also said that GSB are ‘dreaming’ of his return to the capital and are even preparing a salary offer of around €4 million (£3.4m) per season to convince the striker to make a return.

Transfer Tavern take

He was a fan favourite at the London Stadium during his last stay and manager David Moyes even called him ‘unplayable‘ due to his mixture of physical strength, pace and class on the ball – but we believe the boat has sailed with Arnautovic.

Linked striking targets such as Tammy Abraham and Ivan Toney come as much better options given their age and goal returns over the last two season.

Abraham has scored 21 goals in 37 Premier League starts over the last two seasons, with Toney bagging an incredible 29 goals and 10 assists in the Championship this campaign alone (WhoScored).

Meanwhile, Arnautovic hasn’t played in a top division for two years, so bringing him back to London would undoubtedly be a gamble, especially on a big contract.
