Marko Arnautovic delivers West Ham transfer bombshell

Marko Arnautovic delivers West Ham transfer bombshell

But in a blow to his hopes of retaining the forward, Arnautovic's brother Danijel has made it clear that the player is eager to quit the London Stadium.

The statement reads, "West Ham bought Marko for peanuts". It is close to double what they paid for him.

Nasri fell foul of football's anti-doping regulations in 2016 after receiving an intravenous drip created to 'keep him hydrated and in top health during his busy soccer season with Sevilla', but has since been handed a short-term contract with an ambitious Hammers side. "We know we have a very good player in Marko, a lot of clubs may want him to play for them".

Nasri is set to make his first start for West Ham against former club Arsenal on Saturday, live on Sky Sports. He wants to go to a new market and challenge for titles.

But Danijel Arnautovic, who has agitated for a move for his brother before, issued a statement to talkSPORT in which he claimed the striker has a "great desire" to go to China.

Back in the summer Marko Arnautovic was a wanted man.

"They want to continue playing the way they have been so far and I am sure he will have his head in the game against Arsenal". That is Marko. He will never change. He hopes the fans can respect his wishes.

The Blues are said to be in the hunt for AC Milan striker Gonzalo Higuain and Bournemouth forward Callum Wilson as they look to replace the misfiring Alvaro Morata but former midfielder Steve Sidwell believes Arnautovic could serve as a more cost-effective option for the club.

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

Pellegrini, who worked with Nasri when in charge at Manchester City, says the signing did not carry a significant risk, and that the Frenchman was focused on getting back to playing football after his ban, not negotiating on money. Marko in this moment is a player of our team.

According to the Daily Star, as cited on HITC, the Hammers could launch a January move to sign the Belgian, with Perez attracting interest from elsewhere.

"He is a proven goalscorer and he gives you something different".

"His agent has been making noises about him leaving as well and Chelsea could probably get him for £40m because of his age".
