RUMOURS: Arnautovic scouted by Paris Saint-Germain

The Austrian forward has been in fantastic form along with his striker partners in the Potters line-up but has turned down a new contract at the club

Paris Saint-Germain are scouting Marko Arnautovic, who has rejected a new contract offer from Stoke City.

According to various sources, Arnautovic's demand of £80,000 a week would break Stoke's current wage structure, with the Potters offering significantly less than the Austrian is asking for. 

Arnautovic has been in fine form this season, netting seven goals for Stoke and two for his country, and is attracting interest from Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain, who are prepared to offer significantly more than the £2 million that the Potters paid Werder Bremen for the Austrian in 2013. 

The Stoke forward currently has 18 months remaining on his current deal and the club still remain hopeful of reaching an agreement.
