West Ham United make transfer decision on Marko Arnautovic

Marko Arnautovic news

West Ham won't sanction Arnautovic's exit in January

West Ham United reportedly have no intention of parting ways with Marko Arnautovic in the New Year despite the alleged interest from Manchester United.

The Austria international joined the Hammers from Stoke City during the summer of 2017 and he has since contributed an impressive tally of 16 goals from just 41 Premier League appearances.

Owing to this, he has been regularly linked with a potential move to Manchester United and his brother and agent Danijel recently suggested that the 29-year-old could join a 'top team' in January.

However, according to The Star, the Hammers have no plans of selling Arnautovic midway through the ongoing campaign and any admirers are expected to be left frustrated until the summer at the least.

United boss Jose Mourinho is currently said to be eyeing a new marksman to compete with Romelu Lukaku, who has been largely disappointing since the season started.

The Belgian begun the season with four goals from just five outings but he has since gone into his shell and failed to score in 10 matches across all competitions.
