West Ham United will complete the signing of Mario Arnautovic within 48 hours according to reports.
The London Evening Standard claim that a club record fee of £23million had been agreed with Stoke City, with the player already agreeing personal terms with the East London club.
The Hammers have already seen bids of £15m and £20m rejected for the 28-year-old but have now come to an agreement for the Austrian winger.
He is expected to have a medical in the coming hours before finalising the move and joining up with his new teammates on a pre-season training camp in his home country.
Arnautovic has made 145 appearances for Stoke, scoring 26 goals in his four seasons with the club.
The Hammers are also close to announcing a deal for Joe Hart who has already passed a medical with the club, and will sign on an initial season long loan from Manchester City.
