West Ham United are closing in on signing Marko Arnautovic from Stoke City.

Richard Keys has suggested that West Ham United are overpaying for Marko Arnautovic.

Arnautovic is set to move to West Ham from Stoke City in a deal worth £24 million, according to the Sun.

However, Keys feels that the Hammers are not getting value for money by snapping up the Austrian.

West Ham are also closing in on a deal to sign Javier Hernandez, as per The Sun, as Slaven Bilic’s side step up their recruitment drive.

West Ham have already brought in Joe Hart and Pablo Zabaleta this summer, but more additions are planned, with Bilic eager to improve his attacking options.

Arnautovic will be expected to add power and creativity to West Ham’s forward line next season.

Arnautovic was a fans’ favourite at Stoke, where he often was Mark Hughes’ side most dynamic attacking player.

West Ham get their season underway with a match against Manchester United on opening day weekend.
