Marko Arnautovic delivers West Ham transfer bombshell

"He took every award at the club; best player, signing of the season and the players' award", added Danijel Arnautovic. "They paid £20m for him, which is nothing in the current market", read a statement from Danijel to talkSPORT. It appears that he finds the offer from an unnamed Chinese club as the most appealing, according to a statement from his agent.

West Ham have had some miserable failures in attack for the club over the last decade, with the likes of Mido, Benni McCarthy, Marouane Chamakh and Simone Zaza all struggling upon arrival.

The West Ham striker has recently returned to fitness and has been linked with a shock move to the Chinese Super League.

The club will attempt to lure Arnautovic, who turns 30 in April, with wages understood to be £200,000 a week over a four-year contract.

Last season, Arnautovic struck 11 times in 35 games to help West Ham overcome a dismal start to the season - even if he had a tricky start to life with the club when he was sent off in just his second league game.

Now West Ham have a fantastic offer. He wants to go to a new market and challenge for titles. It is his great desire that West Ham accept the offer from China.




However, the Hammer's will expect to face fierce resistance from the Magpies as the club won't look to sell the player unless they can bring in a suitable replacement.

Manager Manuel Pellegrini, who worked in China with Hebei China Fortune, said: 'I talk with all of the players, always.

West Ham host Arsenal on Saturday and Pellegrini has no qualms about playing Arnautovic despite the speculation. Marko in this moment is a player of our team.

He said: They are rumours.

"If it was £50m between Wilson or Arnautovic I would go with Marko", he told The Debate on Sky Sports.

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".
