MARKO READY FOR THE NEXT STEPThe striker wants to compete with the "very best". Brother and Advisor Danijel is planning a big transfer.It's Sunday and a hectic bustle at Schwechat airport. An accumulation of people. Not an easy task to identify the people you are looking for, when suddenly a face appears which the KURIER did not expect.It's a face that stands out in this crowd. That of Marko Arnautovic. A short welcome and the usual small talk then but then a quick change to talking business. The question of plans for the future can already be asked. "I'm 29, so in the best age. It's clear that I want to compete with the very best. But in such matters I trust full of my brother." A few words and he's gone.A statement that allows scope for interpretation. At the official media meeting of the ÖFB on Tuesday before the match in the Nations League against Bosnia Herzegovina Arnautovic diplomatically turned to the question of his future and said: "We do not belong where we are now."So why not ask, brother? Danijel Arnautovic has always been the advisor to Austria's most gifted kicker. A call is enough and lo and behold: You are on the right track. "Marko feels extremely comfortable at West Ham. You can see that every week. But there is also the feeling that it could not have been this yet. And he's ready for the next step, "says Danijel, who is three years his senior (see interview).International GamesA really big club should still be on the horizon for the Viennese. So it's about playing for titles and also in the Champions League. In fact, the Marko Arnautovic has not often done so. Five times, to be exact. In 2010, he even scored twice in the jersey of Werder Bremen against his former clubs Inter Milan and Twente Enschede.The fact that he can still officially call himself Champions League winner, is due to the season before, when he was under star coach Jose Mourinho in the squad of Inter Milan. But does Arnautovic really feels like a Champions League winner? After all, Mourinho had not granted him a single minute in the top flight. "With me is Champions League winner, but I am not," the technicianTop club as a goal Maybe that's why Arnautovic wants to go there again, to the big stage. That he could succeed with West Ham may be doubted. Although he came in the summer of 2017 for a transfer of the equivalent of 28 million euros from Stoke City and should earn 477,000 euros a month in London, there was already another transfer within reach last summer, according to Brother Danijel. And that despite the contract until 2022. In any case, the top club has already been the target for some time. Three years ago, Arnautovic said in an interview: "I still have something to achieve, I still want to go to a top club." The next year should be ready.Brother Danijel in interview: "Marko should not be fighting against relegation" KURIER: Your brother talked about trying to compete with the very best. What could he have meant by that?Danijel Arnautovic: You're asking me? Why did not you ask him yourself?He was a bit curt. Well, he plays in the Premier League because he is already among the best. But for a player like Marko it can not have been like that. What do you think he feels when he turns on the TV on Tuesday or Wednesday? But every player's heart is bleeding when he knows he has what it takes to play.How are you, as a brother and consultant, happy with him? He plays very well and has scored five goals in ten games. He is a great support at West Ham. I think you can tease out a bit more with him, but that will only succeed if he really plays for a top team. Marko is ready for the next step. Someone like him should not fight against the drop, but play for the top spots and be an international player. Was not that the goal of West Ham before the season? This may be. And you have to say very clearly: Marko feels extremely good at West Ham. You can see that every week, too. He loves this club and his fans. But there is also the feeling that it could not have been this. Purely from a sporting perspective. And then everyone That sounds like a goodbye. That is also possible. It was very close in summer already. Actually close enough to touch.Which clubs were interested and why did not it work? There were two clubs playing Champions League this season. I can not reveal more. So there are options. And we are probing.

It’s really frustrating how long it’s taking our board to nail this kid down with a new contract. It will be unforgivable if we lose him to Man Ure.
If there's any truth that he may be interested in joining Everton, I personally feel that we should try for him too.
I'll see if I can find the text of the original interview that this news report is based on.
Edit: here we go https://kurier.at/sport/fussball/marko-ist-bereit-fuer-den-naechsten-schritt/400322832 in ?German
He's gonna be 30 soon,so a fairly short term purchase but we'd demand a LOT of money for him....money I think it's unlikely we will get for his age
So what happens next,let's hope he doesn't throw a strop like Payet...but It's a conversation for next year
I understand why he would want to be in the champions league while he's in his prime
OFB is the Austrian FA.
Marco was born in Vienna thus "the Viennese".
Arguably you would say with Lukaku and Rashford United is unlikely,so that leaves chelsea who probably want a bit more than Arnie
It also reminds of the old problem that your best players leave for champions league football and when they do that you are prevented from ever achieving champions league football.
Definitely not this season and for a massive fee next year. unfortunately Arnie give the impression he is capable of sulking as Payet did.
He is a massive part of our attack though so it'd hard to replace someone with that sort of impact (who'd actually want to come to us as opposed to a champs league team lol)
I think if he wants to play in the CL, I doubt it'd be for an English club. He'd have to go abroad again
If he is so concerned with how Marko needs to play CL football what on earth was he doing at Stoke.
Because he’s just turned it into a meaningless gesture.
I’m off to have a cry now.
Everything else has come from his agent/brother.
