West Ham United fans are worried that Marko Arnautovic will leave, after his latest comments over his future at the London Stadium.
Arnatuovic, who is on a £70,000-a-week contract with the Hammers, has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United recently, but West Ham are understood to be desperate to keep their talisman.
Arnautovic said, as translated by Football.London: "I am happy with my job. Whatever happens will happen. I've never heard anything, that's why I cannot say anything about it.”
West Ham fans have taken the rather vague answer from Arnautovic to questions over his future as a signal that he could depart.

Off he goes to play in Carabao Cup . Would take 55m— mike warren (@mikewarren66) June 8, 2018
That statement by him is cryptic for I am off .But it is up to West Ham if they have the balls to say no .If West Ham want to go to the next level you have to keep players like Arnautovic not sell them .— peter (@pnorth30) June 8, 2018
that doesn't say anything. sounds dodgy to me.— anthony powys (@tonypowys1) June 9, 2018
Losing a player of Arnautovic’s quality would obviously be a major blow to West Ham, but the deal could be valuable.
Arnautovic is now 29, and he is unlikely to ever be worth more than he currently is.
West Ham have been quiet in the transfer window so far, but are expected to spend big following the appointment of Manuel Pellegrini as manager.
