Manager Manuel Pellegrini explains Marko Arnautovic absence

Manager Manuel Pellegrini explains Marko Arnautovic absence

Guangzhou Evergrande are reportedly in talks with West Ham over signing Marko Arnautovic, and have made an offer in the region of €40m for the forward.

Joshua King added a second to confirm victory in the 90th minute but it was Wilson's 54th-minute effort that proved decisive as Eddie Howe's side registered only their third league win since the end of October.

"(But) Pellegrini's knowledge of who he might get and who might come because of his reputation (as a top class manager), he'll have a plan, I don't think West Ham need to be anxious.

Arnautovic has been linked with a move to the Chinese Super League and the Austria international's agent and brother confirmed he wants to leave West Ham.

And Sky Sports News reporter Sheth explained why Bournemouth could prefer to sell Arnautovic to West Ham rather than Chelsea FC.

"If I say the player must stay, the player will stay". I am not telling the club about it.

Hence West Ham have chosen to hold onto Marko Arnautovic for the second half of the season - atleast. If it's a good deal for both parties we will arrange to be without Marko.

DeMarcus Cousins' first Warriors points came on this massive dunk
Nonetheless, DeMarcus is one of the greatest talents in this league. "We want him to be that player that he knows he can be. Having won seven of their last eight games, the Warriors have well and truly put their early season bumps behind them.

"If they agree, we don't have any problem to change".

The latest player from these shores being targeted by the Far East is Marko Arnautovic.

No player has been booked more this term than Bournemouth's Jefferson Lerma, who has accrued nine yellow cards.

"We will know what will happen about it in the coming days".

But unlike Arnautovic, Gomez thrives in the air, having won 3.8 aerial duels per game, which, in fact, is better still than any other West Ham defender except Angelo Ogbonna.

"Of course we are disappointed about the result", he said. On the face of it, you'd think West Ham would be more of a rival than Chelsea FC are.
