Former West Ham midfielder Trevor Sinclair wants the club to get rid of Marko Arnautovic. And Sinclair has called for West Ham to sign Salomon Rondon as his replacement.
This echoed his antics in January as he tried to force a move to China. Now, another Chinese club has come in with a bid of just under £20m, which West Ham have rejected (BBC Sport).
Sinclair, like many West Ham fans, is now fed up with this Arnautovic situation. The 2000 Hammer of the Year runner-up said: “Always on the cards and not the type maverick you can win with in these situations! Sell and bring Rondon in is the best way forward. Thoughts Hammers fans?”

Marko Arnautovic out, Salomon Rondon in: Good move?
Rondon is a top target for West Ham (The Mirror). The Irons want the Venezuela international and hope that Rafa Benitez’s Newcastle United departure will help them win the race.
Last season, he netted 12 goals on loan at Newcastle from West Brom. The Baggies failed to win promotion so they will struggle to keep Rondon this summer. And Slaven Bilic could help out his former team by sanctioning this transfer.
But the 29-year-old should not be the only striker West Ham pursue. Andy Carroll and Lucas Perez have both left, while Arnautovic and Javier Hernandez could still leave.
Rondon could be a good addition for the Hammers. But Manuel Pellegrini needs at least two other strikers to compete with him next season.
Boca Juniors also want Rondon. Read more here.
