Arnautovic’s Brother Confirms Chelsea And Other Premier League Clubs Are “Tracking” West Ham Ace

West Ham striker Marko Arnautovic’s agent and brother has revealed that both Chelsea and Everton are interested in the forward.

The Austrian international was previously pursued by Manchester United over the summer, and it seems the player could be the subject of bids in the January transfer window.

Daniel Arnautovic has said that although the forward is happy at the Hammers, his ambitions may lead him to seek a move to another club in the future:

“It’s not that he really wants to leave, but we believe this is the moment in his career when he has to take a step forward and try to win a few trophies, maybe even the Champions League.”

“There are a lot of Premier League clubs tracking him. Chelsea and Everton, for example, but not only them.”

The 29-year-old has scored five goals in ten Premier League matches so far this season and has been a revelation for West Ham since being moved to a central striker role midway through last campaign.

Arnautovic joined from Stoke City for £20million in the summer of 2017 and signed a five-year contract that keeps him at the London Stadium until 2022.

Interest from other clubs would likely be rebuffed by the Hammers but his brother’s comments do suggest a player keen for the club to move in the right direction.
