Marko Arnautovic delivers West Ham transfer bombshell

Marko Arnautovic has scored 19 goals for West Ham.

Shelvey has only made 12 appearances for Newcastle this season and this week went to Barcelona for treatment for a thigh problem.

Now West Ham have a fantastic offer.

Marko Arnautovic has told West Ham United he wants to move to China this month - with the club immediately responding by issuing a statement that the striker "is not for sale". It is his great desire that West Ham accept the offer from China.

This season, the 29-year-old has netted eight times in 17 games to add to his growing reputation.

His agent says the Austria worldwide will continue to give his all to West Ham while he remains contracted to the club, but that he hopes a deal can be reached for a move to China. They paid £20 million for him, which is nothing in the current market.

The Austria global has reinvented himself as a centre-forward, scoring 11 times to keep the Hammers up last season.

Mourinho rules out return to management at Benfica following Man Utd sacking
Former Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has revealed that he never planned taking up any job in Portugal at the moment. They're not signing someone they don't know, they are going for someone they know, someone who has already been there.

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. He wants to go to a new market and challenge for titles.

Arnautovic moved to London Stadium for a club-record £20m fee from Stoke in July 2017 and his contract runs until 2022.

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. At the moment we have no news about him.

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

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

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. Marko in this moment is a player of our team.

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".
