Arnautovic Injury & West Ham Bid

Arnautovic Injury & West Ham Bid

Early on Tuesday morning the press were full of reports that Stoke City had officially rejected an offer for Marko Arnautovic from West Ham.

With news of a formal transfer offer, West Ham seemed to move incredibly quickly with what the BBC reported as being a £15million offer that was rejected.

It's believed West Ham have, or will, come back with an offer in the region of £20million to force the issue now.

Arnautovic of course played the opening 45 minutes of the game against Neuchatel Xamax earlier this week but reportedly limped off at half time having suffered an injury.

Sky Sports were reporting that the Austrian had picked up a knee injury and could now be set for a spell on the sidelines as Stoke continue to assess how bad the problem might be.

If the problem is a serious one, that might well end the speculation surrounding the 28 year old largely before it's begun.
