Conte targets West Ham striker Arnautovic for Inter Milan

The ink isn't dry on Antonio Conte's contract as the new manager of Inter Milan, but he is already eyeing a Premier League raid; with Marko Arnautovic in his sights.

The former Chelsea manager has already been linked with moves for Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku and Chelsea full-back Victor Moses, but a move for West Ham striker Arnautovic would certainly dampen any expectancy at the London Stadium for next season.

However, West Ham could reluctantly do business with the Italian giants in order to finance their moves for West Brom striker Salomon Rondon and Celta Vigo's Maxi Gomez.

The Austrian international tried to leave for the Chinese Super League in January, only for the Hammers to turn down two bids in excess of £40million.

But they may now be tempted to take £30m for the hitman, who cost them £24m from Stoke in 2017.
