Man Utd handed blow in their pursuit for Premier League no.7

The Premier League outfit West Ham United’s management will reportedly turn down any offers for their star man and reported Manchester United target Marko Arnautovic during the January transfer market.

Manchester United have been connected with a move for the Austria international star, whose brother and the agent suggested that a January departure could be possible in order to fulfil the striker’s potential.

Arnautovic himself has moved to dismiss rumours that he could depart from the club, though, and the local free daily newspaper The London Evening Standard reports that The Hammers will resist any attempts to prise the star away from the London Stadium.

West Ham United would likely be able to at least double their money from the £23 million they paid to sign Marko in 2017, but the board are not interested in selling their key forward.

Serbian-born striker star has thrived since being played in a central attacking role for his team and has netted five goals in 11 Premier League appearances thus far this season.

Meanwhile, Jose Mourinho’s side are also pursuing other attacking targets and one of them is Gremio forward Everton Soares who has €60 million buy-out clause in his current contract.
