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.

The Daily Star claim that the Hammers have placed a £60 million asking price on the head of Arnautovic.

However, his comments to Sky Austria have caused doubt among supporters of the London club.

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.

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.
