BREAKING: @stokecity winger Marko Arnautovic hands in transfer request - Sky sources. #SSNHQ

Im making this a discussion and not a suggestion as, while I am personally a fan of the player, I dont know that he fits in to what we need right now. Can he play number 10 or not? Does he provide the competition for our wingers we need if there is a god and we manage to get shot of Sako?

It also seems unlikely he would leave Stoke to come to us but its something to talk about until we announce <anyone> :D

Only rumours i see link him to West Ham.

I'd love Baby Zlatan to come to palace.

Could well fill our troublesome number 10 position, but I suspect the reason for the transfer request is he wants to make a step up to a club playing European football.

That said, London > Stoke!

He's a weird one when we beat Stoke 4-1 last season he looked unintrested and not bothered by the score them once we got the fourth he started running around like a madman and scored a screamer

Not worth the trouble that follows him.

His stats on paper have been impressive, scores and assists plenty from midfield which is an area we could have done more with last season.

Id wager he wouldnt cost 50m like certain other midfielders im a fan of either :p

Would fit perfectly into a 4 3 3 - scores goals, creative and powerful. As others have said, I suspect he is looking for European football and I doubt we would be a destination from Stoke other than being a London address. From a career perspective he probably should have left them last Summer and credit to Hughes for persuading him to stay. I think he will go this time.

The sort of player that I expected to end up at Everton. He needs to lift his game again if he is to realise his talent. Has too often seemed to be too comfortable playing 'within his ability' rather than pushing the envelope.

15m - surely will take more than that now. Crazy game of Monopoly.

Think West Ham are taking the piss personally :D

Very good player if we can afford, can play a number of positions.

11-07-2017, 07:03 AM
Bags of talent, but comes across as a bit of a tw@t to me. We seem to have a good group here at the moment and think he could upset the apple cart. He's going to want CL/Europe or at least contenders anyway I reckon.

11-07-2017, 07:56 AM
Attitude problem, lazy, looks genius at times and then non-existent for 10 game spell. No way Jose

11-07-2017, 08:00 AM
Nah. Lazy.. moody.. inconsistent.

Fk me Hughes was pissed off then :D

11-07-2017, 11:19 AM
if hes handed in request its because he (through an agent) has agreed personal terms with another club and stoke don't want to let him go.
unless hes gagging to come to us nothing to see here.................

Attitude indeed but very good player.

Again I prefer to sign players in the position they actually play. He plays more as a LWF or CF but we really need an out and out ACM.

Strange on his side as he signed a new deal not too long ago.

Top knot ****. No.
