Arnautovic asks to leave Hammers, club adamant he is not for sale

However, they now have no room on their roster to sign foreign players, suggesting they may not be the club in question. They paid £20m for him, which is nothing in the current market.

The report details that Wilson is in their sights as a potential replacement and they'd have to pay over £35million for the England internatonal, as he's been earmarked for around the £50million mark.

Arnautovic risked the wrath of supporters when he told the club he wants to leave and challenge for titles after an offer - believed to be closer to £28million - was turned down by West Ham, who told their star to honour his contract.

While some Hammers seem adamant that Arnautovic won't leave during the January transfer window, a plethora of fans have fired into the Austrian amidst the transfers rumours, and here's a flavour of what some of the fans have said about these recent goings-on and many have likened this situation to that of the Dimitri Payet saga.

Shanghai SIPG are the side said to be interested and have reportedly offered a wage packet of £200,000 per week over a four-year deal.

The West Ham chief then proceeded to repeatedly and somewhat manically stress his delight that the whole issue was absolutely and definitely closed.

Nacho Monreal has been out for a couple of weeks now but he should start in left-back role vs West Ham on Saturday.

'It is his great desire that West Ham accept the offer from China'.

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

Will be hard to replace but i trust Pellegrini to do it. [tomster36]This whole thing about Arnautovic is annoying!

"Those are all rumours", Pellegrini said. But in some moments every club can sell some players, bring in another one and it's part of the process that you are doing to grow, so we cannot just talk about one name.

'Marko is professional and is preparing himself for the Arsenal game. 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.

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. I don't think he will leave'.
