Marko Arnautovic delivers West Ham transfer bombshell

Arnautovic, who has scored eight goals this season and is the club's record signing, is a favourite with supporters.

"He is not for sale", West Ham said in a statement.

However the Hammers are now in a fight with the Chinese Super League for their second top scorer this season with a bid of £35 million tabled for the striker, from an unnamed team from the far east.

Selling him would leave them short of time to find a replacement before the end of the January transfer window.

Wilson may be the answer to the forward search and he's proving this season he can tear it up in the Premier League. He wants to go to a new market and challenge for titles.

"I'm a guy who, mentally, I'm really strong, but for maybe the first time in my life, I cried about my career because I thought it was over", Nasri told West Ham's official website. "He took every award at the club; best player, signing of the season and the players' award", added Danijel Arnautovic.

The Chinese ministry of foreign affairs said it was "greatly concerned" and that it expects Poland to "justly" manage the case. Polish state television TVP reported that the men have proclaimed their innocence, but Zaryn said he could not confirm that.

"Until he is no longer a West Ham player, he will give everything to the club".

Writing in his column for BetVictor, Owen said: "Arsenal are unbeaten in their last 11 away games against West Ham in all competitions, but if there is to be a victor at the London Stadium I feel it will be the hosts, as I still have my reservations about the Gunners defensive capabilities". That is Marko. He will never change. [emz_dj]If Arnie wants to leave then get as much as we can for him and get him out of the club.

But a Hammers spokesperson said: "Marko has a contract and we fully expect him to honour it". He hopes the fans can respect his wishes.

Will be hard to replace but i trust Pellegrini to do it. [tomster36]This whole thing about Arnautovic is annoying! But we need to hear also what the player wants, what the club wants and I'm not talking about Marko Arnautovic, I'm talking in general.

West Ham host Arsenal on Saturday and Pellegrini has no qualms about playing Arnautovic despite the speculation.

Mesut Ozil has recovered from a knee injury but we doubt is Unai Emery will name him in his first XI on Saturday. I don't think he will leave'.
