Mark Arnautovic finally on the move

Marko Arnautovic is a player who's never too far away from the headlines and he's making them for all the wrong reasons once again, with him appearing to be publicly seeking a transfer away from West Ham United.

It's the second successive window that the Austrian has tried to depart the London Stadium and despite him evidently being one of the clubs top performers, many fans are now finally calling for the club to let him go.

He joined from Stoke City back in 2017 for a club record £20m and on the whole he's been a revelation, cementing his place as one of the finest attacking players outside the top six.

But his erratic and unpredictable behaviour off the pitch has led to this once fans favourite now becoming public enemy no.1. When he signalled his intention to leave the club in January he was booed by the supporters and it didn't go down well when he was given a new contract shortly after handing in that transfer request.

That extension bumped his salary up to £100,000 per-week, making him one of the clubs top earners. But despite this, 6 months later the club find themselves in the same situation with him.

The Hammers have been active in the market already adding exciting Spain U21 international Pablo Fornals and they're also in for Celta Vigo forward Maxi Gomez. Signing the Chilean would definitely be something of a coup and it would certainly cushion the blow of any potential Arnautovic departure.

The Hammers are believed to have turned down a £19.7m bid from an unnamed Chinese Super League club for the 30 year-old, an offer that was described as 'insulting' by the East Londoners.

Arnautovic was once a firm fans favourite, but they appear to have lost patience with him now after submitting two transfer requests

Despite receiving this offer and knowing of the players wishes, the club insist that he is not for sale and if they were to even consider it, it would take a massive bid after rejecting £35m in January.

But West Ham's commitment to keeping one of their star players hasn't gone down well with Danijel Arnautovic, who's claimed that his brother is being "used by West Ham".

Speaking to Sky Sports News, he said: "He's not a cow or a horse which you bring to market,

"He's a highly talented footballer who is simply being used by West Ham. He's just a number to them.

"West Ham were trying to get rid of Marco right up until the last minute of the January transfer window and they are still trying to sell him right now. To them he's just a commodity.

"West Ham are still speaking to the Chinese club. He is still for sale and it's simply a case of how much money West Ham can get for him."

The Hammers are believed to be keen on retaining Arnautovic so the comments made his brother are all the more baffling, especially when he refers to him as just a number. Manuel Pellegrini agreed to make him one of the clubs top earners so he's hard a "cow or horse".

But despite how good this guy is on his day, it appears that his days at West Ham are numbered and the fans will be glad to see the back of him judging from their response on social media.
