David Moyes has told both Chelsea that Marko Arnautovic ‘is ready’ for a top four club, but West Ham should not let him go.
Arnautovic has been in top-class form for the Hammers this season and has transformed himself into one of the most dangerous, and powerful strikers in the premier league over the past 12 months.
His form, and performances, have led to speculation that we are lining up a January moves with Maurizio Sarri not impressed with his current front-line.
And Moyes says Arnautovic is ready to join a top club in the coming transfer windows, telling the Sky Sports website: “Marko is really important to West Ham. They need him.
“He can play for a top-four club, he’s good enough.
“He’s got the ability. He can play with the top players and considers himself a top player – you’ve got to remember he’s already been at the likes of Inter Milan before.
“But where do you get that level of striker or forward player now? They’re really hard to find.
“Marko’s change from a winger to a centre forward has really reinvented him.
“When we arrived at West Ham the punters weren’t having him, and to be fair if you had watched him a lot at Stoke you’d have questioned him.
“But the minute he moved to centre forward he was a revelation. He changed completely. He can score, he’s powerful, he’s quick, he’s got energy.
“That was always the thing questioned about Marko – did he run, what was his attitude like – but we found him great to work with.
“There was a period last season where he was making more sprints in the Premier League than any other player.”
Is Arnautovic good enough for a move here?
The answer is no he is not and I hope that he doe not end up at Stamford Bridge, it is that simple.
