Sometime today, or tomorrow, we expect West Ham United Football Club to announce a second signing following on from the acquisition of Joe Hart.
Numerous news feeds, including the BBC, are reporting that, at the third attempt, West Ham United have had a bid accepted for Marko Arnautovic.
After having bids of the magnitude of £15 million and £20 million rejected, our source is suggesting that Stoke City have accepted a bid from the Hammers said to be in the region of £24 million.
The Austrian forward, 28-years-of-age, joined Stoke City from the German side Werder Bremen four years ago.
Stoke, knowing their man was just twelve months into a four-year deal, pushed the price up for the player who, last season, scored 7 times in 35 games in all competitions.
We await official confirmation from within the inner sanctum of the London Stadium.
