Mourinho tips West Ham as Premier League title contenders

"They are good players, they are creative players, they can create, but naturally they are not the kind of guy that is a killer".

And he will be followed to East London by former Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez after the club agreed a £16m deal with Bayer Leverkusen.

Arnautovic came through his medical on Friday and becomes West Ham boss Slaven Bilic's third summer signing following the arrival of Joe Hart on loan and Pablo Zabaleta on a free transfer.

In a statement on the West Ham website, the club said a deal has been made between the clubs and the player will travel to London to finalise personal terms and undergo a medical.

Arnautovic, 28, is a versatile attacking option that should compliment fellow West Ham new boy Javier Hernandez quite nicely.

Whatever the outcome, and judging by Thursday's pre-season friendly victory against Fulham in Austria, Manuel Lanzini will remain West Ham's most important player.

If, as expected, Hernandez does sign for West Ham, it will mean the club's long hard search for a striker could be finally over.

Pak troops violate ceasefire along LoC
India and Pakistan blame each other for the ceasefire violations in which civilians from both sides have been affected. The Pakistan army pounded Indian posts and forward villages, prompting India to retaliate in equal measure.

West Ham now have Andy Carroll and Diafra Sakho as strikers, but the two have frequently struggled with injury issues.

"I think they are terrific signings", he told talkSPORT.

The 29-year-old is familiar face to the Hammers supporters after impressing for Manchester United in the past.

Still, West Ham had the third-highest average attendance in the Premier League - almost 57,000 - last season, behind only Manchester United and Arsenal, and the club looks set to at least challenge in the top half in 2017-18 after an 11th-place finish last season.

"I thank him for that fantastic work to bring us two very important players for us, but we need a bit more". A signing like Chicharito, however, could help the club in their quest to grow.

Arnautovic scored 26 goals during four seasons at Stoke after joining the club from German Bundesliga side Werder Bremen in 2013.
