Manchester United have been linked with a move for West Ham forward Marko Arnautuvic, after reports emerged that the Hammers could be set to sell the 29-year old striker after just one season at the club.
The former Stoke forward joined West Ham for £20 million, which was a club record fee for them at the time and, after a slow start, flourished under manager David Moyes, and scored 11 Premier League goals for them, the first player to achieve that feat in a West Ham shirt for more than a decade.
However, despite that, the club may be willing to sell him reports talkSPORT, with both Manchester United and Roma reported as being potential suitors for the Austrian international.
West Ham have signed eight players so far in the transfer window, and twice smashed their transfer window, first with the acquisition of Issa Diop from Toulouse and then with the purchase of winger Felipe Anderson from Lazio, so the apparent willingness of the club to sell Arnautuvic may be an attempt to recoup some of that outlay.
