The Austria international has become a wanted man after it emerged his contract with Stoke has a release clause in it, supposedly attracting the interest of Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain and several German clubs as a result.

The 27-year-old has also admitted he would like to play Champions League football again, further raising the potential for him to leave the Potters this summer.

Stoke are eager not to lose the former Werder Bremen forward and want him to sign a contract extension, with his current deal set to expire in a little over 12 months time.

Arnautovic has now revealed that his first priority is to perform well at Euro 2016 for Austria and says he will make a decision on his club future once the tournament in France has concluded.

“I have a contract until 2017. My brother, who is also my agent, has already sat down with Stoke”, Arnautovic told German newspaper Bild.

“I cannot say if I will stay there or not.

“I first want to play a strong European Championship, stay healthy and then we will see where I play next season.”
