Arnautovic wants Inter comeback

West Ham United forward Marko Arnautovic is reportedly keen on a return to Inter, who could see him as a cheaper alternative to Romelu Lukaku.

According to Sky Sport Italia and Tuttosport, the Austrian would like to re-join the Nerazzurri, the club he spent one season on loan with from FC Twente in 2009-10.

As the London club rates him at around the €25m mark, Inter could be interested, seeing him as a cheaper alternative to the €80m that Manchester United want for Romelu Lukaku.

The paper claims that although Arnautovic isn’t a first-choice option, new Coach Antonio Conte has become a fan from watching him play in the Premier League over the past few years, and his ability to be able to play as a centre-forward and second striker makes him even more interesting.

The Austria international joined the Hammers from Stoke City for €22.3m in 2017, and he scored 22 times in 65 games while providing 12 assists over that two-year spell.

Arnautovic played three times for the Beneamata during the 2009-2010 season before he headed to the Bundesliga to join Werder Bremen for €6.2m.
