Manchester United are the favourites to sign Marko Arnautovic from West Ham United this summer, despite Everton also being interested, according to reports in the British media.

The Sun is reporting that Everton are keen on a move to bring the 29-year-old to Goodison Park this summer following the appointment of Marco Silva as the club’s new boss.

According to the same report, West Ham United value Arnautovic at around £50m, with the Hammers only having signed him from Stoke last summer.

However, the same article claims that Manchester United remain as the front-runners to secure the signature of the Austria international, as Jose Mourinho looks to strengthen his squad ahead of next season.

Manchester United are believed to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as Mourinho aims to assemble a squad capable of winning the Premier League next season.

The Red Devils endured something of a disappointing campaign last term as they ended up in second place in the Premier League table and without a trophy.

Manchester United will be aiming to challenge for the title next term as they bid to win the trophy for the first time since 2013.
