Bologna striker Marko Arnautovic has been the subject of interest from West Ham since leaving the club.
That’s according to one of his agents, Tiziano Pasquali, who says some of the biggest clubs in Europe are chasing the Austrian striker.
Arnautovic has been in fine form over the last year, with 15 goals and one assist in 34 games in all competitions for Bologna.
That means he was among the top goalscorers in Serie A, with the same goal tally as Victor Osimhen and a better record than the likes of Edin Dzeko and Lorenzo Insigne, among others.
It means there is plenty of interest in him, with several reports making it clear that clubs around Europe are eyeing up a move.
Former club West Ham, where Arnautovic spent two years and scored 22 goals in 65 games, are one who’ve made a call.
“There are no chances to see him in Salerno,”- Pasquali’s told Salernosport24, relayed by TuttoBolognaWeb.
“The stadium is warm and the fans wonderful, and maybe it could have been discussed with Sabatini…Has anyone called me? No, and I was surprised.
“Before we closed with Bologna, West Ham had called us, and now some of the most important clubs in Europe are asking about him.
“I wish Salernitana to get to a level where they can think about taking such a highly rated player.”
Whether West Ham are still keen remains to be seen, however, that would be a little hard to believe.
The Hammers certainly do need a striker and they have some good memories of Arnautovic, but he’s now 33 and it’s difficult to believe David Moyes would be keen on a reunion.
Indeed, Arnautovic is the exact opposite of the type of player Moyes would want at the club at this point.
