'Not for sale' - West Ham oppose Arnautovic's request for China switch

A Chinese Super League club, believed to be champions Shanghai SiPG, are understood to have launched a £35million swoop for Arnautovic, the Hammers' top scorer.

Arnautovic's brother Danijel, who also acts as his representative, revealed that the player wants to leave and urged West Ham to sell.

The statement said: "West Ham bought Marko for peanuts. They paid £20million for him, which is nothing in the current market", he said.

They bought him to keep them in the Premier League last season and he did that.

However, they now have no room on their roster to sign foreign players, suggesting they may not be the club in question.

West Ham United have won one of their last 21 Premier League matches against Arsenal (D4 L16), a 2-0 win at the Emirates in August 2015. We know that we have a very good player in Marko, a lot of clubs may want him to play for them. Saturday is a new challenge. This is what he wants.

"It is his great desire that West Ham accept the offer from China", Danijel added.

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".

Should she be granted these billions in the divorce , she would become the richest woman in the world. TMZ's sources say Jeff and MacKenzie have known Lauren and Patrick as good friends for 10 years.

That might well be the players wish, and knowing the big money that sides in China pay it really isn't too much of a surprise that his agent might want him to go too, but the club are going to dig their heels in.

Now joint top of the club goalscoring charts with eight, Arnautovic is under contract until 2022.

"Marko Arnautovic has a contract and we fully expect him to honour it".

"If it was £50m between Wilson or Arnautovic I would go with Marko", he told The Debate on Sky Sports. Although after Payet you never know what's round the corner.

'I am sure his head will be in the game against Arsenal.

The Arnautovic camp clearly have their sights set on an exit.

Meanwhile, Jack Wilshere will step up his fight for full fitness next week.

West Ham confirmed on Thursday that Paraguayan defender Fabian Balbuena is out for up to two months after surgery on a knee injury.
