Agent: I'd rather see this 27-year-old striker go to Chelsea, Antonio Conte perfect for him


Agent Rob Groener says Chelsea or Bayern Munich would be the perfect club for Stoke City striker Marko Arnautovic.

Groener is the ex-agent of the 27-year-old and believes new manager Antonio Conte could be a "father figure" for the Austria international.

The Austrian was tipped by many to become one of the stars of the Serie A when he joined Internazionale in 2009 but failed to impress in the Italian league.

He enjoyed a number of positive seasons since joining Stoke City but could leave the club during the summer transfer window.

"I'd rather see him go to Chelsea. There he could count on more support," Groener told Voetbal International.

"The problem was in my eyes that he had the wrong managers.

"He needs a father figure; someone who works him but also accepts him. Potentially he is a player for Chelsea or Bayern Munich."
