West Ham complete signing of Austria star Marko Arnautovic



West Ham United are delighted to announce the Club-record signing of Austria attacker Marko Arnautovic.

The talented Arnautovic joins the Hammers from Stoke City, adding proven Premier League and international quality to Slaven Bilic’s forward line.

The 28-year-old, who arrives from Stoke City on a five-year contract, becomes West Ham’s third signing of the summer, following England goalkeeper Joe Hart and Argentina full-back Pablo Zabaleta.

“It feels special to me to be a West Ham player,” said Arnautovic, who has 62 caps for his country.

“Everyone knows that West Ham is a big Club, with big history and I’m happy to be a part of it now. I can’t wait to get started.

“I played against West Ham at the old stadium – I didn’t play last year at the new stadium because I was suspended – but I came to the game and I can only say it is a massive Club with a lot of fans.

“They are crazy for football and this is what I like. The Club is still growing, getting better and better and that’s why I’m here.”

Joint-Chairman David Sulllivan added: “We’re delighted to have completed Marko’s transfer from Stoke City.

“Alongside Pablo Zabaleta and Joe Hart we have brought in three players with vast Premier League experience this summer, and that was one of our key targets as we look ahead to the new season.

“Marko will bring plenty of quality to our front line and I’m excited to see him in a claret and blue shirt.”

An exciting player capable of opening up the tightest of defences, Arnautovic has caught the eye, created and taken chances wherever he has played.

After breaking through as a free-scoring teenager at Dutch club FC Twente, the versatile forward spent a season on loan under Jose Mourinho at Italian giants Internazionale before joining German side Werder Bremen in June 2010.

The Austrian produced the goods regularly in the Bundesliga, scoring 16 goals and assisting 13 more in just 84 appearances over three seasons, including a first senior hat-trick at Hoffenheim in December 2012.

The following year, Stoke City brought him to the Premier League, where his career continued to flourish under Mark Hughes. In four seasons in the Potteries, Arnautovic helped Stoke to three ninth-place finishes, with the Vienna-born forward scoring 26 times and registering 32 assists in 146 games.

Arnautovic is also one of Austria’s biggest sports stars and has been a regular for his national team for the past six years. He started all ten qualifiers and three finals matches at UEFA Euro 2016 and has scored three times in Austria’s opening six 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

Everyone at West Ham United would like to wish Marko the best of luck as he embarks on a new adventure in Claret and Blue at London Stadium.

He's already taught me his technique.

Retired from being generally sad and creepy.

I'd take a good look at his technique, Eerie.

He retired from slapping the goods to your wife?

What a gentleman. Maybe she can move one down to a brown belt.

I have a wife, and she's welcome to flick her bean as much as she wants.

Meanwhile, the karate instructor who had the hots for her retired this year.

About as much as your missus flicks her bean when watching karate instructors in action.

How many times a day you rub your head when watching big unit football players, Eerie?

Indeed Geoff, but you're talking about cunts like Vexed, who's football knowledge isn't worth a rub of salt.

Absolutely spot on! Arnies got all the attributes and skill that Carroll can only dream of! Arnie is our No 9 and Carroll should give the shirt to him and hang his head in shame!

"It is a head scratcher how a bloke who is 6'4 and a unit, skilful, rapid, and a great finisher has not spent his entire career as a central striker."

Indeed, but half of last season people on here were moaning "we're still not playing a striker!!!"... when Arnie clearly WAS our striker. And scoring. He just wasn't playing as a big lump no9 like some bloke whose name I forget.

Re: Marko Arnautovic - signed
The Article that I read said that he was being offered to Roma for under £20 million. That proves it is bollocks.

Re: Marko Arnautovic - signed
100% load of bollocks.

Re: Marko Arnautovic - signed
Looks like very lazy journalism, he has been linked with Roma twice before, once before he joined Inter, then also whilst at Stoke.

Bernie, I hope my instincts are right.

My instincts tell me that article is a steaming, fly infested pile of bull shit.
