West Ham source dismisses link to global midfielder

West Ham source dismisses link to global midfielder”

Danijel Arnautovic, who is also the player's brother, sent a strongly worded statement to talkSPORT revealing the player's intention to move to the Far East.

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

West Ham have rejected a £35million bid from a Chinese Super League club, believed to be the champions Shanghai SIPG, for the 29-year-old Austrian worldwide.

Real Betis are keen to snap the striker, but West Ham are eager to ensure that they are not left short of options in the final third.

A West Ham United source has rubbished rumours that the club are interested in signing Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez, according to the Claret and Hugh website. It is close to double what they paid for him.

The 29-year-old, has scored seven Premier League goals this season. "It is his great desire that West Ham accept the offer from China", added Danijel Arnautovic.

It is understood West Ham will not consider selling him this month because of the difficulties they may face in replacing him. Hoping like the other times Arnie will set the record straight by confirming he hasn't been pushing to leave West Ham.just yet anyway.

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. At the moment we have no news about him.

Pellegrini said: "We know that we have in Marko a very good player so maybe a lot of clubs may want him to play for their team, but he's a player of West Ham and at the moment we don't have any news about him".

"I don't want to talk about things that might happen".

Pellegrini dismissed Arnautovic's angry reaction to being substituted after 20 minutes of Saturday's FA Cup...

"Marko and all the other players involved in rumours have their heads here", he said.

"I'm not surprised Maurizio Sarri has demanded a striker this week because they need one badly and they could probably get Wilson from Bournemouth for £30m".

'I am sure his head will be in the game against Arsenal and it will not affect his performance'. Although after Payet you never know what's round the corner.
