The Marko Arnautovic saga continues to rumble on at West Ham.

He handed in yet another transfer request yesterday, according to Sky Sports.

Is all as it seems, however?

Not according to well-renowned West Ham insider ExWHUeomployee.

He took to Twitter yesterday, and suggested that the Hammers ace is purely angling for more money:

So it seems as though the 30-year-old could be after more money, despite having agreed a new contract as recently as January.

Now is the time to put an end to all of this.

West Ham must make a stand by selling Arnautovic, even if they can’t get top dollar for him.

It just makes no sense to keep the Austria international any more.

He has made it quite clear that he is not committed to the Hammers. It just makes no sense to keep him.

Arnautovic earns £100,000 per week at West Ham, according to Spotrac, so getting him off their wage-bill would give Manuel Pellegrini more wriggle room in the transfer market this summer.

The Chilean is reportedly in the market for Maxi Gomez, Moussa Marega and Salomon Rondon, and it could be argued that all three would be upgrades on the former Stoke City man.

The 30-year-old has proven that his heart isn’t in it, and West Ham must not buckle by giving him what he wants this time.

It’s time to say goodbye to Marko, and all the trouble that accompanies him.
