West Ham star Nasri: I cried for first time in my career

West Ham United manager Manuel Pellegrini is determined to keep Marko Arnautovic at the London club amid interest from the Chinese Super League in the Austrian forward.

Last season, Arnautovic struck 11 times in 35 games to help West Ham overcome a dismal start to the season - even if he had a tricky start to life with the club when he was sent off in just his second league game.

The report details that Wilson is in their sights as a potential replacement and they'd have to pay over £35million for the England internatonal, as he's been earmarked for around the £50million mark.

West Ham could move for Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson if Marko Arnautovic leaves, according to The Daily Mail.

'West Ham bought Marko for peanuts, ' he said, referring to his 2017 move from Stoke. "This is what he wants" the statement read. "He took every award at the club; best player, signing of the season and the players' award", added Danijel Arnautovic.

Now West Ham have a fantastic offer. He wants to go to a new market and challenge for titles.

An tug-of-war is brewing as West Ham insisted on Thursday they would not allow Marko Arnautovic to leave this January after the forward's brother and agent declared the 29-year-old "greatly desired" a switch to China.

Shanghai SIPG are the side said to be interested and have reportedly offered a wage packet of £200,000 per week over a four-year deal.

"Those are all rumours", said the Chilean.

Declan Rice (CDM) - An exciting prospect, the tough tackling midfielder signed a new long-term contract in December tying him down until 2024.

Samir Nasri played sixty minutes during the FA Cup game but the former Arsenal man will not be starting this weekend.

"I predict with complete confidence that we'll look back at the whole thing and laugh on the day of Marko's testimonial in 2026 as he tearfully hangs his boots up and joins the coaching staff". I don't think they will go. But you never know what can happen in the future.
