However, they now have no room on their roster to sign foreign players, suggesting they may not be the club in question. They paid £20 million for him, which is nothing in the current market.

Arnautovic was the subject of a reported £35 million ($44 million) offer from an unnamed Chinese club this week.

They are close favourites with the same bet firm at odds of (2.05).

Marko Arnautovic has told West Ham United he wants to move to China this month - with the club immediately responding by issuing a statement that the striker "is not for sale".

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.

But a Hammers spokesperson said: "Marko has a contract and we fully expect him to honour it". Arnautovic is rumoured to have a £200,000 per-week offer on the table, one that would be hard to turn for a player approaching his 30th birthday. He wants to go to a new market and challenge for titles.

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

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.

'Marko is professional and is preparing himself for the Arsenal game.

Mesut Ozil has recovered from a knee injury but we doubt is Unai Emery will name him in his first XI on Saturday.

'I think Marko and all the other players involved in rumours have their heads here and want to continue playing the way they are doing so far. Marko in this moment is a player of our team.
