Marko Arnautovic has made it clear he wants to move to a top-four side – and some Reds fans are keen to see Liverpool move for him.
According to Sky Sports, Arnautovic said: “I’m 29 so that’s the best age. It’s clear that I want to compete with the best players.”
If he does force his way out of West Ham, there’s likely to be a few suiters. Lots of Reds fans, though, would love Jurgen Klopp to make the move, as these tweets show.
I’m seeing some talk about Arnautovic and Liverpool. That’s some good talk.

Liverpool should be all over Marko Arnautović. He would be the prefect back option for us. I think he would thrive under Klopp

He'll Provide us with that something different. Can see him finishing off Robbos crosses.

Would love Arnautovic. Be a perfect signing for us and yes Klopp is a massive fan

There’s certainly no doubting he has ability and that he would work well for the Reds – but at 29, he’s not exactly a signing that would be typical of Liverpool.
He does have some excellent statistics, however, as Simon Brundish examined on Twitter.

He’s a player that Liverpool’s transfer gurus will no doubt be keeping an eye on – time will tell whether we make a move for him or not.
