West London side Chelsea have been dealt a big blow in their pursuit of star player after West Ham United boss Manuel Pellegrini made it clear that Marko Arnautovic is not for sale.

Marko Arnautovic has been on the wish list of the West London who are keen to have a forward in the team with Spanish striker Alvaro Morata and French forward Olivier Giroud.

The 29-year-old is also being wanted by an unknown Chinese club with reports that a fee of £35 million as tabled to have his signature, according to Sky Sports sources.

However, the Blues have to look elsewhere for addition as the London club made it clear that he has a contract with the club and would not be sold in this winter transfer window as the contract must be respected ted.

The West Ham boss acknowledged that Marko Arnautovic is being wanted by a number of sides but there is no way they can land him as the club have made up their mind on the stand.

Marko Arnautovic is expected to play against North London side Arsenal in this weekend clash as the manager hopes he is able to concentrate on the game and not be distracted by transfer speculations.
