New West Ham manager David Moyes has reportedly been given the green light to go ahead and sell striker Marko Arnautovic during the January transfer window.
Arnautovic only joined the Hammers from Stoke City last summer but has so far failed to deliver and has disappointed large sections of the fan base.
He has also yet to score his first goal for the club. Meanwhile Moyes is expected to be handed a significant transfer budget for the January transfer window as the Hammers will be looking to bolster their squad in order to improve their chances of avoiding relegation.
The 54 year old Moyes is said to be interested in signing Harry Artur from Bournemouth as well as Lamine Kone from Sunderland.
Kone will likely not cost much considering that the Black Cats are languishing in last place on the Championship standings.
Moyes could also turn his interest towards William Carvalho who was a top target of the East London club during the summer transfer window.
