West Ham respond to Marko Arnautovic's agent over claims he wants out

Arnautovic, who has scored eight goals this season and is the club's record signing, is a favourite with supporters.

The Saturday lunchtime kick-off in the Premier League will see Arsenal and West Ham United take on each other at the London Stadium.

However the Hammers are now in a fight with the Chinese Super League for their second top scorer this season with a bid of £35 million tabled for the striker, from an unnamed team from the far east.

As Gold strained to produce a series of throaty chuckles, assembled journalists asked him why Arnautovic had recently began learning Mandarin, purchased property in China and asked for his latest month's wages to be paid in Yuan.

The Gunners are now fifth on the Premier League table - three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea and a win would help them maintain that gap. He wants to go to a new market and challenge for titles.

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

West Ham United instantly released a statement stating that Arnautovic is not up for sale, but some Hammers fans are not happy with Arnautovic's willingness to leave the club he joined for in 2017 for £20m from Stoke City, and some fans are happy to let the Austrian leave providing they can get a decent fee for him.

West Ham have had some miserable failures in attack for the club over the last decade, with the likes of Mido, Benni McCarthy, Marouane Chamakh and Simone Zaza all struggling upon arrival.

'It is his great desire that West Ham accept the offer from China'. He hopes the fans can respect his wishes.

Within minutes, a clearly irked West Ham responded by simply saying: 'Marko has a contract and we fully expect him to honour it.

But West Ham could enter the race to bring in Wilson as their replacement for star man Arnautovic.

"Players of his quality and other players like Declan Rice, Felipe Anderson, other clubs will want them but that is one thing".

"I don't want to talk about things that might happen". I don't think they will go.
