West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini has said speculation about Marko Arnautovic is all rumours adding a lot of clubs would like him to play for him but there is no news to tell. He added that he is confident that the 29-year-old striker had his head in the right place for this weekend’s Premier League match against Arsenal.
Speaking at this lunchtime pre-match press conference at Rush Green Pellegrini told reporters hungry for news on Arnie “They are rumours. We know Marko is a very good player so maybe a lot of clubs will want him to play for their team but at the moment he is a West Ham player and we want to keep him.”
Rumours emanating from Head of Talksport Lee Clayton suggested that the club had turned down a £35m bid from an unnamed Chinese club and that the Austrian had been offered personal terms worth up to £400,000 per week to move to Far East.
