Wolfsburg star Maximilian Arnold has told the German media he can’t confirm he will see out his contract with the Bundesliga side.

The Germany U21 international is contracted to Wolfsburg until June 2020, and has been linked with a move to West Ham United in recent months.

Speaking to SportBild, Arnold was quizzed about his future with Wolfsburg, and whether he would remain with the German side: “I will give it full throttle for VfL, but I can’t say that I will remain until 2020. Football business moves fast.”

During the last window we covered reports from Germany that West Ham were interested in Arnold after the player was again asked about his future with Wolfsburg. The central midfielder impressed for Germany in this summer’s Euro U21 tournament, which brought him to the attention of West Ham.

The 23 year old gave indications he would be prepared to leave Wolfsburg, but it would be an ambitious move to pull off for West Ham, given the youngster’s standing in Germany.

Rather than a move to the Premier League it’s likelier he would remain in his home country if he did leave his current club, but with Arnold giving hints over an exit, it’s worth West Ham continuing their interest.
