FC Twente coach Steve McClaren hopes Marko Arnautovic will shun interest from the likes of Chelsea and Inter Milan.
The highly-rated 20-year-old is being closely tracked by some of Europe's biggest clubs after he impressed for Twente this term - helping them to second place in the Eredivisie.
Some reports in Holland suggest both Chelsea and Inter have gone as far as to offer personal terms to the young forward, who it is claimed has his heart set on a move to Stamford Bridge.
But McClaren is hopeful is Austrian starlet will remain in Enschede for at least another 12 months.
"Marko is a big talent, who certainly has the capacity to succeed at the top," the Englishman told AD Sportwereld.
"But it would have been better for him to have stayed for another year at FC Twente.
"Then Marko would have been sure of a starting place and he could develop further in a quiet environment.
"I advised him that too, but he is very passionate and ambitious."
Reports suggest Twente want €15million (£13.1million) for Arnautovic.
