Injury blow for Hammers


MarkoArnautovic_3542583k-large_trans_NvBQzQNjv4BqqVzuuqpFlyLIwiB6NTmJwfSVWeZ_vEN7c6bHu2jJnT8West Ham transfer target Marko Arnautovic could face a lengthy spell out of action with a knee injury. The news comes just hours after he handed in a transfer request after a £15m bid from West Ham was rejected by Stoke.

Despite the interest, Arnautovic started the club’s pre-season victory over Swiss side Neuchatel Xamax.

 Arnautovic was forced off shortly before half-time after falling awkwardly in the penalty area when attempting to complete a cross.

The Austria international received medical treatment on the pitch and was assisted off by the Stoke physio. West Ham will now wait and see the extent of the injury before deciding whether to make a second bid on the 28-year-old Austrian.
