Arnautovic briefly played under Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho during a loan spell at Inter Milan during the 2009-10 season.

The Austria worldwide was West Ham's outstanding attacking player in the Premier League last season after being moved into a centre-forward role by manager David Moyes, registering 11 goals and six assists to help keep them in the top flight.

Arnautovic has scored five goals for West Ham this term.
