This is the first time that West Ham forward Marko Arnautovic will be reacting to the speculations linking him to the West London side Chelsea ahead of the winter transfer window which reopens in coming weeks.

Marko Arnautovic has been on the radar of the West London side for some weeks with reports that an official offer will be submitted to the West Ham United in January.

The 29-year-old striker became a West Ham player in the summer of 2017 from Stock City with a fee of about £24 million and he has been able to settle to score a total of 16 goals and nine assists in 46 matches in all competitions.

In his reaction to the speculated interest from the Stamford Bridge, Marko Arnautovic stated that he will not have to speak on the issue but will only concentrate as the West Ham player that he is.

He noted that he is more bothered about his side’s game against Manchester City on Saturday which he wishes to give his best performance and await what comes after it.

The West London side has got Brazilian international Willian and Spanish forward Pedro in their team but they seek to strengthen the attack with Marko Arnautovic.
