West Ham Have Received A Bid In Excess Of £35m For Marko Arnautović

West Ham United have reportedly received a £35m bid for Marko Arnautović.

That's according to talkSPORT's Lee Clayton, who said that the bid came from an unnamed Chinese club.

It is reported that the 29-year-old Austria international would receive 'amazing' wages should he sign, making it more difficult for the Hammers to keep hold of him for the rest of the season.

West Ham signed the former Werder Bremen player from Stoke City in 2017, with Arnautović's contract set to expire in 2022.

He has made 46 appearances for the club and scored 18 times so far.

Arnautović had been linked with other Premier League clubs in the January transfer window, which included Manchester United and Chelsea.

In December 2018, Austria teammate Marcel Sabitzer believed that he could "play a major role" at the Red Devils.

"Marko is a great guy," he told Omnisport (via Goal). "I get along well with him and we have played together for a long time with the national team.

"We are good friends and once went on holiday together. I like him a lot and I think he feels the same way about me.

"Everybody can see that he has athletic qualities. He had a lack of maturity and luck in Germany and I think he knows that.

"But his performances in England [in] the past few years have demonstrated his real class and I can see the same in terms of the national team.

"That's why I believe that he can make another step forward and play a major role there [at Manchester United]. I cross my fingers for him."

Should Arnautović leave West Ham?
