Austrian likely to stay put.
Werder Bremen’s general manager Thomas Elchin has refuted claims that the club have received any bids for Austrian international Marko Arnautovic, Sky Sports reports.
Over the past week reports in England have suggested that West Ham United have made an approach for the 24-year-old, whilst Real Sociedad and Dynamo Kiev have also been credited with an interest in landing his signature.
However, the Bundesliga giants have firmly denied that they have been in contact with anybody regarding the player’s future.
Eichin is quoted by Bild as saying: “At this point in time we are in no (transfer) talks with any club regarding the future of Marko Arnautovic.
“Marko Arnautovic is part of the first-team squad and has a contract at our club.”
Question marks over his future had been raised as he had found himself suspended from first team duties toward the end of last season for several disciplinary reasons, one such incident included a training ground fight with teammate Sokratis Papastathopoulos.
The forward-cum-winger began his career in the Eredivise with FC Twente where his solid displays both out wide and up front caught the attention of Inter Milan. Sadly, he could not establish himself in Serie A and was moved on to Bremen after making just three appearances.
