Former Premier League striker Peter Crouch has thrown his weight behind transfer rumours linking one of his former teammates with a move to Manchester United.

Peter Crouch and Austrian international star Marko Arnautovic were teammates at Stoke City for four years before the former left to join London club West Ham United in a £25m deal.

The ex-Three Lions of England player is certain that Marko Arnautovic is good enough for Manchester United.

He was speaking via his column in the Daily Mail as monitored by the Daily Express.

Arnautovic has already spoken about his desire to play for a Champions League playing club.

West Ham United are a decent club in the top flight of English football but they are a long way away from challenging teams like Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea for a Champions League spot.

Since he signed for West Ham at the start of last season, Marko Arnautovic has established himself as a key player for the Hammers.

He has scored 19 goals in 52 games for the East London club with eight goals and two assists in 17 games this season.

The Austrian forward has been able to score seven goals in the Premier League this term.

Marko Arnautovic has been in the news in recent days after the Hammers rejected a £35m offer for the player from an unnamed Chinese Super League club.
