West Ham United forward Marko Arnautovic declares himself "fit, ready and hungry" for the new season.

West Ham United forward Marko Arnautovic has declared himself "fit, ready and hungry" for the new season.

The Austrian international, who moved to the London Stadium from Stoke City last summer, netted 11 goals in 31 Premier League appearances in his debut season to keep the Hammers in the Premier League.

Speaking to Sky Sports News, the 29-year-old praised the club's summer transfer business and said that the team's new arrivals are also raring to go.

"We have some great signings," Arnautovic said. "They are hungry guys who want to come and show themselves in the toughest league, the Premier League, it's a very hard league.

"The gaffer has changed a lot here, he wants us to play from the back, no long balls and chasing balls, we have to defend our balls but we have to defend our goal properly first then we go forward.

"I hope I will score more than 11, I will start from the first game. I was not happy at the start of last season, more disappointed than anyone else. I am fit, ready and hungry for the next season."

West Ham, who play Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday, have signed the likes of Jack Wilshere and Felipe Anderson ahead of the new campaign.
