West Ham will reportedly dig their heels in to ensure they keep attacker Marko Arnautovic this summer.
According to the Daily Mail, the Hammers are “adamant” they will keep hold of the 30-year-old for next season.
It is understood that Inter Milan are keen on a potential swoop for the Austria international to re-sign him, while Italian duo Roma and Fiorentina are eyeing too.
The report details that Manuel Pellegrini’s side have no intention of losing their best players, with Manchester United targets Issa Diop and Declan Rice still at the London Stadium.
Arnautovic scored 11 goals in just 30 games across all competitions last season, but is certainly capable of performing better.
The centre-forward scored three goals in the final two league games and it looks like he will be in the mix for the next campaign.
He cost the Hammers £20million (BBC) back in 2017 and it seems like he still has unfinished business.
Arnautovic can play a key role for West Ham next season if he knuckles down and starts playing his best football on a regular basis.
The striker can be a target man with his strength and power, while he’s got the technical ability too to score goals in the penalty area.
It looks like Pellegrini wants to give him another go next season and there is undoubtedly major talent, so it could well pay off.
