West Ham reject bid from China for wantaway striker Arnautovic

West Ham rejected a bid from China for wantaway striker Marko Arnautovic.

BBC Sport says West Ham have rejected a €22m bid for Arnautovic from a Chinese club after the striker said he wanted to leave.

The Hammers regard the offer for the 30-year-old Austrian, who signed a contract extension five months ago, as derisory and immediately dismissed it.

He wanted to leave in January after a lucrative offer from China.

However, West Ham did not receive an acceptable bid and eventually Arnautovic said he was "happy to stay".

While he appears to have changed his mind, West Ham have not.
