Some West Ham fans have called for David Moyes to re-sign Marko Arnautovic this summer.
The 31-year-old joined the Hammers from Stoke City in the summer of 2017 for around £20 million (BBC).
Arnautovic went on to rack up 22 goals and 12 assists in 65 games for West Ham (Transfermarkt).
And with David Moyes in need of another established forward this summer, the Austrian would not be a bad shout.
A couple of months back, Arnie actually hinted, albeit jokingly, that he would be open to a return to West Ham one day:

The Austria international was a divisive figure at the London Stadium, however. On his day, he was quite simply brilliant. But the 31-year-old angered Hammers fans by demanding an exit from east London on more than one occasion.
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.
Could the 31-year-old make it up to the Hammers faithful, however? Or has he burned his bridges in east London?
Moyes had great success with the former Stoke man during his first stint in charge at the London Stadium.
And some West Ham fans seem to think that re-signing Arnautovic would be worth a shot…
Yes. Gives us a much-needed attacking option and could be the key to unlock Haller’s potential. As much as I love Antonio, we all know he’s not going to survive 38 games next season playing the way he does. -Lee

If he is happy to be 3rd place striker then I’m not against it, Moyes did get the best out of him and him and Haller would be a good partnership.

i’d take him back 100%
I can understand why he left, he needed to financially secure his family’s future, We’d all do the same.
