Premier League club West Ham United have reportedly turned down a big bid from an unnamed Chinese club for one of their star players.

According to the report from the stables of The Guardian, West Ham United have rejected a £19m bid for Marko Arnautovic.

The Austrian international attacker was also the subject of a big bid from China during the winter transfer window earlier in January.

Chelsea target Arnautovic submitted a transfer request during the winter transfer window before he made a remarkable u-turn to stay at the London Stadium and also sign a new four-year contract worth £10m on a yearly basis.

The player wants the club to consider the new Chinese bid this summer but West Ham United are reluctant to sanction his sale this summer.

The former Werder Bremen and FC Twente star has been told to concentrate on his job at the club.

Marko Arnautovic became a West Ham United player in the summer of 2017 after his transfer from Stoke City who received a reported £24m from the Hammers for his signature.

The controversial Austrian player has scored eleven Premier League goals in each of his two seasons with East London giants West Ham United.
