Well, this is awkward.
New West Ham manager David Moyes probably hasn’t even met Marko Arnautovic yet, but he’s already thinking about selling off the forward in January.
The Hammers forked out an eye-watering £24million for the Austria international just six months ago.
But he’s now top of a list of players the new boss is thinking of getting rid of, according to reports.
Arnautovic, 28, has scored just twice for the club and has widely been regarded as a flop since he joined from Stoke City over the summer.
And according to the Mirror, Moyes has been given the go ahead by the board to overhaul the squad as he sees fit.
The same report suggests the Hammers could make a move for Bournemouth’s Harry Arter in the New Year.
And the club could re-ignite their ill-fated move for Sporting Lisbon midfielder William Carvalho.
The Portugal international has been on Moyes’ radar since he was at Everton and he even reportedly interested when managing Manchester United.
The Scot could also re-kindle his relationship with Sunderland defender Lamine Kone (naturally), who he managed while at the Stadium of Light.
Moyes took his first training session on Wednesday after being named the new Irons boss.
Photos showed his taking the session at Rush Green despite many players being away on the international break.
A move back to Stoke would likely be out of the question for Arnautovic, after he quit the Bet 365 Stadium for a £130,000-a-week deal at the London Stadium.
Stoke made a £20m profit on the forward, four years after they signed him from Werder Bremen.
Mark Hughes said: “It got to the point where it was unredeemable, unfortunately.
“A lot of things had come to pass and the only outcome was for us to make sure we got a very, very good deal, which was as a club think we have. Marko moves on and we do.”
