Marko Arnautovic could leave West Ham for Champions League football

Marko Arnautovic may leave West Ham to pursue Champions League dream

Speaking to Austrian newspaper Kurier while on global duty, Arnautovic said: "I'm 29 so that's the best age. It was already very, very close this last summer". "But I fully trust my brother in such matters".

In an interview with Austrian newspaper Kurier, the West Ham forward admitted that he has his eye on a transfer.

The Portuguese coach knows Cahill well as the pair won the league together at Chelsea during the 2014/15 campaign when the 61-cap England global played a key role in Mourinho's title-winning side.

According to the agent of Marko Arnautovic, Everton are interested in the Austrian attacker.

Marko Arnautovic's two most productive seasons have come in the last three years, with 11-goal campaigns for Stoke City (2015-16) and West Ham (2017-18), but he's on his way to better with five goals in 10 PL matches so far this season.

West Ham's Marko Arnautovic.

West Ham fans will dread to think where they would be without Arnautovic's influence.

"So it's very hard because of the dressing room area, I don't know how influential he is in the dressing room area at West Ham".

"He's already playing in the Premier League and that's where the best players". For that to happen, he has to play for a top team.

Chelsea fans will need some convincing that Arnautovic is up to the standard required to feature in our front-line, but we ought to get used to the idea of the club targeting him.

The Austrian forward, 29, is combustible but industrious as a player, and his brother says he almost left West Ham for a Champions League club in the summer. But there is still that feeling, that this can not be the end.

However, the 32-year-old has struggled to establish himself under new boss Maurizio Sarri this season with the centre-back yet to start a single Premier League game and has been forced to make-do with run-outs in the cup competitions with David Luiz and Antonio Rudiger the preferred central defensive pairing.

Meanwhile, West Ham are still hopeful of signing Samir Nasri despite concerns over the France international's fitness. Nasri is not eligible to play until 1 January because of a doping ban.
