Marko Arnautovic's Brother & Agent Claims West Ham Striker Wants China Move

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

The Austria forward moved to east London in July 2017 for £20m, plus an additional £5m in potential add-ons, and is West Ham's joint-top scorer this season with eight goals in all competitions. "We know that we have a very good player in Marko, a lot of clubs may want him to play for them". It is close to double what they paid for him.

The player's agent and brother Danijel Arnautovic told talkSPORT on Thursday it is his client's "great desire that West Ham accepts the offer from China".

A tough trip to the Emirates Stadium lies in wait for West Ham this weekend, a ground at which Nasri spent three years earlier in his career, and the two-time Premier League victor is determined to show his quality in what will be a "crazy" atmosphere.

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

Wilson may be the answer to the forward search and he's proving this season he can tear it up in the Premier League.

It is understood West Ham will not consider selling him this month because of the difficulties they may face in replacing him.

"He is not for sale", West Ham said in a statement. He wants to go to a new market and challenge for titles.

West Ham's board are not known for releasing the grip on the purse strings too regularly, and given the large outlay prior to the season beginning, the former Manchester City boss may need to deal in free transfers, or use the loan market if he is to make the sufficient additions to his playing personnel this month.

"I'm sure things like that are parallel to performance and he'll have his head in the game against Arsenal (Saturday 12.30pm)".

"Marko and the other players involved in the rumours have their heads here, they want to continue the way they're playing". [emz_dj]If Arnie wants to leave then get as much as we can for him and get him out of the club. Players of his quality and other players like Declan Rice, Felipe Anderson, other clubs will want them, but that is one thing. Although after Payet you never know what's round the corner.
