The end of Marko Arnautovic‘s cantankerous London act may’ve walked West Ham United right into a top upgrade on the Austrian.

Arnautovic left town for $27.6 million after Manuel Pellegrini and his players grew tired of the player’s antics and lack of loyalty, and now the Irons are being linked with a $45 million move for Eintracht Frankfurt’s Sebastien Haller on a four-year deal.

Haller was a big part of an electric attack, combining with Luka Jovic, Goncalo Pacienca and Ante Rebic for 52 Bundesliga goals. Jovic’s 17 paced the group, but Haller was just two behind in 80 fewer minutes.

He added nine assists and was the highest rated player on the roster according to advanced stats site WhoScored.

Haller scored five more times in the Europa League, and is just 24 years old. This would be a huge addition for West Ham, which has plenty of suppliers highlighted by Felipe Anderson.
