The 31-year-old joined the Hammers from Stoke City in the summer of 2017 for around £20 million (BBC).

A couple of months back, Arnie actually hinted, albeit jokingly, that he would be open to a return to West Ham one day:

Arnautovic left West Ham for SIPG Shanghai in the summer of 2019 for a fee believed to be worth £22.4 million (BBC). And he has scored 10 goals in 16 games for his new club (Transfermarkt).

Unforgivable attitude prior to exit

And the West Ham fans have never really forgiven the Austrian for his embarrassing conduct during his final few months at the London Stadium.
