West Ham have made it clear this afternoon that Marko Arnautovic is not for sale at a crazy price of around £19 million!
Reports that a Chinese club have bid for the striker are true but the asking price is of no interest to the Hammers following an offer last summer of £35 million.
Sky Sports News were first on the scene with the news that the 30 year old is allegedly asking for a transfer although at this stage there is no confirmation of that being the case.
However, he and his brother are being tempted by the offer from the orient which would see them both involved in a get rich quick exercise at the club’s expense given the absurd offer which has been received.
ClaretandHugh was told by a senior source inside the club via e mail that the offer was between £19m to £22m and that there was no question of it being accepted.
We were told:” The player signed a new deal with the club in January and we expect him to honour his contract.”
