West Ham poised to make £14m Rondon offer

Marko Arnautovic hands in transfer request at West Ham West Brom man set to be subject of £14 million Premier League bid

West Ham are now in talks to sell their talisman Marko Arnautovic to a Chinese Super League club, according to the player's brother.

Could this have been a ploy by the agent to endear West Ham fans to the player even further before this possibly inevitable Chinese bid was to come in?

West Ham's initial reaction was to tell the Austria worldwide, who signed a new deal five months ago, to honour his contract.

"'The team is the most important thing and players who want to play for a team moving in the right direction is the most important thing'". Please go off to China to get the payday you apparently so desperately need, and allow West Ham to grow in your wake.

And, adding to this information, BBC Sport's Simon Stone revealed that the Chinese club in question would be Shanghai SIPG, and that the fee the Irons were so disappointed in was £22.4m.

Gayle, in fact, was the only frontline West Indies batsman to perish in single figures and the only one who did not strike a six. West Indies started the match in next-to-last place on three points, courtesy of a solitary win over Pakistan and a washout.

Arnautovic again wants to leave though, amid fresh interest from China, and has reportedly put in a transfer request, while the Hammers have already rejected one bid of around the £20m mark.

But now, as reported by Sky Sports' Kaveh Solhekol on Twitter, the Hammers have accepted a deal to sell him, despite acknowledging its foolish economics, out of a desire to get rid of a disruptive player.

The latest episode marks the second time this year that Arnautovic has tried to force his way out of the club and West Ham have now decided that the 30-year-old will only be a negative influence if he stays. You can't keep having this going on every six months, though.

"You don't want that going on constantly every transfer window, you want it sorted".
