Arnautovic's signing sees Vitor Pereira’s side strengthen their attacking options with a little less than half of the Chinese league season remaining.
He joins former Chelsea midfielder Oscar and his fellow Brazilian Hulk in Shanghai and his arrival is expected to be followed by the departure of striker Elkeson, who has been heavily linked with a return to Guangzhou Evergrande.

Arnautovic scored 22 goals in 65 appearances for the Hammers.
