Marko Arnautovic intends to see out the forthcoming season at Stoke despite reported interest in him from Everton
According to sources Marko Arnautovic , who scored 12 goals for Mark Hughes’ side last season, is close to moving to Goodison Park.
It is understood, however, the player wishes to remain at the Bet365 Stadium for the foreseeable future – even if Everton boss Ronald Koeman does make a move to take him to Merseyside.
Arnautovic has 12 months left of his present deal and would be available on a free transfer next summer but Stoke have offered him a new four-year contract.
The 27-year-old, who is represented by his brother Danjel is understood to be chasing a wage of around £80,000 a week.
