MARKO ARNAUTOVIC could join Manchester United, but he’s good enough to play for Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal or Tottenham.

That is the opinion of Paul Merson.

Arnautovic has been linked with a move to Manchester United and reports have suggested that West Ham could keep him, providing they pay him a whopping £200,000 per week in wages.

Although he has more than four years left to run on his present deal, Arnautovic could be snapped up by Jose Mourinho, with the pair previously working together at Inter Milan.

Merson thinks Arnautovic is worthy of a big move and he thinks that he could get into any team in the top six of the Premier League.

“He says he wants to leave West Ham and play in the Champions League and you can’t really blame him. He should be playing for a bigger club,” Merson wrote in his column for the Daily Star.

“Arnautovic is 29 years old and won’t have too many years of his career left to achieve what he wants, so it’s no surprise his agent is talking about him leaving.

“He’s good enough to get into the Manchester City team, at least as a squad player. And he would walk into Manchester United’s team.

“Arsenal? They would take him. Chelsea? Them too.

“He should be careful about agitating for a move though.

“West Ham fans love him and have been very good to him. Don’t upset them.

“But I could see United coming back in for him in January.

“He’s someone who would take the load off Romelu Lukaku and I would have him in the team over Marcus Rashford right now.

“West Ham will talk tough but they are in it to make money.

“If they can get £50-60m for him they would drop him off themselves.

“Maybe that’s why they’re trying to sign Samir Nasri.”
