Manchester United are reportedly interested in signing Austria international forward Marko Arnautović, according to Sky Sports.

The Premier League side, who finished second in the English top-flight this term, have been linked with a surprise swoop for the West Ham United winger this summer.

The 29-year-old, who has 70 international caps for his country, scored 11 goals and provided eight assists in 35 appearances in all competitions for The Hammers this season.

Arnautović, who joined West Ham only last July following his reported club-record £25m move from Stoke City, has netted 33 times in 156 Premier League outings overall for both clubs.

However, the report claims United could look to lure the left winger to Old Trafford ahead of the 2018-19 campaign, as Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho was spotted in the stands during Wednesday night’s international friendly as Austria defeated Russia 1-0 ahead of this summer’s World Cup finals.

Arnautović has four years remaining on his contract at the London Stadium, although West Ham have no intention of selling the Austrian, though they value him at £50m.
