Stoke City fans are worried about the rumours linking Marko Arnautovic with a move to Everton.

The Toffees are believed to be willing to bid £12.5 million for Arnautovic, with Sky Sports suggesting the Austrian is close to a move to Goodison Park.

Stoke fans are desperate for Arnautovic to stay, and they have shown their frustration at the rumours on social media site Twitter.

Arnautovic was one of Stoke’s most important players last season, when he delivered his most consistent campaign to date.

The powerful winger was renowned as a player who would blow hot and cold, but last term Arnautovic was largely excellent.

Ronald Koeman reportedly feels that he could be an excellent addition for his Everton side.

The Toffees have masses of funds to spend this summer, but they have only made one signing to date.

If Everton did manage to complete a deal for Arnautovic it would be a signal of their intent for the season ahead.
