It’s finally arrived. West Ham embark on their first leg of their pre-season preparations as they take on Sturm Graz II tonight in Austria.

The first-team squad have spent the last week or so training in Austria as they work on their fitness, with tonight’s game the first of a several match schedule.

As expected, the Hammers are carrying some injuries and a handful of first-team stars won’t feature.

Both Andy Carroll and Diafra Sakho, who struggled mightily last season with groin and back injuries respectively, will miss out this evening.

Here is our predicted XI for West Ham tonight.

Arnautovic to complete move to West Ham within 48 hours .
West Ham are set to complete the signing of striker Marko Arnautovic from Stoke City within the next 48 hours for a club record transfer fee of £23million, the Evening Standard reports. It is reported that the 28-year-old has already agreed personal terms with West Ham and the £23million fee has also been agreed. Stoke had already turned down two previous bids from West Ham for Arnautovic – the first being a bid of £15million and the second being a bid of £20million. Slaven Bilic now appears to have got his man with the third bid of £23million being accepted. Bilic has been keen to add a striker to his squad this summer, with Andy Carroll and Diafra Sakho out injured. Arnautovic is set to undergo a medical at West Ham before linking up with the rest of the squad at their Austrian training camp. Arnautovic joined Stoke from Werder Bremen four seasons ago but now looks set for a move to the London Stadium.
