West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini has reinforced his desire to keep Marko Arnautovic after Sky sources revealed the club rejected a £35m bid from an unnamed Chinese club for the forward.
The Austrian had been heavily linked with a move away from the London Stadium in the past couple of months, with Manchester United and Chelsea both rumoured to be interested in the player.
A West Ham spokesperson said: "Marko has a contract and we fully expect him to honour it". They paid £20m for him, which is nothing in the current market.
The West Ham boss does not believe the transfer interest will distract the Austrian global from Saturday's visit of London rivals Arsenal in the Premier League, live on Sky Sports.
West Ham could move for Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson if Marko Arnautovic leaves, according to The Daily Mail. It is close to double what they paid for him. We know in Marko that we have a very good player and maybe a lot of clubs may want him to play for their team.
The statement, issued to the radio station Talksport, went on: "He knows the West Ham fans love him and he has a special connection with them, but things move on, this is the world of sport, and he hopes they can understand".
Since arriving from Stoke City in summer 2017, Arnautovic has established himself as a key player at West Ham.
This season, the 29-year-old has netted eight times in 17 games to add to his growing reputation. Marko in this moment is a player of our team, players of his quality and other players like Declan Rice, Felipe Anderson, other clubs will want them but that is one thing.
"I think he would be a superb signing for anyone".
"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".
