Arnautovic has made no secret of his desire to depart this summer, having scored 26 times in 145 appearances for the Potters since joining from Werder Bremen in 2013.

The Austria international has been a target for the Hammers all summer but they have been unsuccessful with two previous bids.

However, Stoke have now named their price and it’s understood that West Ham will return to meet their £22million asking price next week.

Potters boss Mark Hughes will use the funds to reinforce his squad as Stoke attempt to improve on a disappointing 2016-17 campaign.
