Chelsea are lining up a swoop for West Ham striker Marko Arnautovic and the player’s agent and brother admits he could be on the move. Blues boss Maurizio Sarri is known to have a new striker at the top of his wanted list when the January transfer window opens and a number of names have been mentioned.
Arnautovic is the latest as rumours have suggested he wants to move on to a bigger club as West Ham have once again struggled in the early part of the season.

The striker’s agent Danijel Arnautovic says a move could happen at some point, but he stopped short of mentioning Chelsea. “That’s possible. It was already very, very close this last summer,” Danijel said. “He’s already playing in the Premier League and that’s where the best players are. But for a player like Marko this cannot be the end.
“He’s a big part of West Ham’s team but I think it’s possible to tease out more of him. For that to happen, he has to play for a top team. “Marko is ready for the next step. A player like him should not play against relegation. He should play for the international spots.
“Marko is really enjoying playing for West Ham. He loves that club and the fans. But there is still that feeling, that this cannot be the end. And everybody should understand that.”
