Samir Nasri admits that he was in tears thinking his career was over when he was handed an 18-month ban, but is glad he has been given another chance to do "the best job in the world" as West Ham gear up to face his former side Arsenal.

West Ham should be keeping Arnautovic in an ideal world given he's a major presence in attack, but teammates Javier Hernandez, Lucas Perez or Andy Carroll are not putting serious pressure on him for a starting position.

West Ham United have rejected a bid worth more than £35 million for Marko Arnautovic from an unnamed Chinese club.

The other huge sticking point, however, is that Newcastle boss Rafa Benitez would not sanction the sale of a midfielder, whose value would be in the region of £20million, unless he was able to bring in a suitable replacement.

The Austrian had been heavily linked with a move away from the London Stadium in the past couple of months, with Manchester United and Chelsea both rumoured to be interested in the player.

But, similarly to Shelvey, Benitez would not sanction business that would undermine Newcastle's attempts to beat relegation.

West Ham host Arsenal on Saturday and Pellegrini has no qualms about playing Arnautovic despite the speculation.

The 29-year-old, has scored seven Premier League goals this season.

Danijel's statement will have come as a hammer-blow to West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini, who said earlier on Thursday that he is determined to keep Arnautovic.

That might well be the players wish, and knowing the big money that sides in China pay it really isn't too much of a surprise that his agent might want him to go too, but the club are going to dig their heels in.

Will be hard to replace but i trust Pellegrini to do it. [tomster36]This whole thing about Arnautovic is annoying!

He said: They are rumours. At the moment it's all so slow and predictable and the whole game is being played in a 30-yard space.

"I'm not surprised Maurizio Sarri has demanded a striker this week because they need one badly and they could probably get Wilson from Bournemouth for £30m".

"Wilson would help because he makes good runs and he's scoring goals right now".

The Hammers have had a long-term problem with their search for a striker and the latest target may be the man to put an end to it. Although after Payet you never know what's round the corner.
