Marko Arnautovic is Stoke City's newest player. The Austrian forward, 24, has been officially announced by the Potters after a move from Bundesliga outfit Werder Bremen.

Arnautovic will be hoping to put in a more solid performance with his new club than he managed last year -- but underperforming with Bremen last season is hardly a marked blemish on his record, since that was true of the vast majority of his teammates.

In Arnautovic, Stoke are getting a dangerous, physical forward who can also play out wide when required. He's signed with the Potters on a four-year deal, and according to the Daily Mail the transfer fee was around £2 million. Not too shabby -- even if he doesn't work out this will hardly cripple Mark Hughes' side financially.

Also, he can take penalties better than Jonathan Walters.
