West Ham fans were left wondering whether the Dimitri Payet situation would happen again after the latest transfer rumours.
According to Sky Sports News, West Ham rejected a bid from an unnamed Chinese team for Arnautovic.
Although the Chinese club bid £35m, many West Ham fans were still confident he would not leave.
Arnautovic reportedly wants to leave
But his brother – Danijel Arnautovic – has got West Ham fans very worried with his latest comments.
Speaking to talkSPORT, brother and agent Danijel revealed that Arnautovic wants to leave West Ham.
If Danijel Arnautovic is to be believed, the 29-year-old wants to force a move through to China this month.
Danijel told talkSPORT: “He wants to go to a new market and challenge for titles. This is what he wants.
“It is his great desire that West Ham accept the offer from China.”
West Ham have responded by releasing an official club statement, which reads: “Marko Arnautovic has a contract and we fully expect him to honour it. He is not for sale.”
Back in January 2017, West Ham were hit by the gut-wrenching news that star man Payet wanted to leave.
The Frenchman was as popular as Arnautovic at The London Stadium and Hammers fans felt betrayed.
Here are what West Ham fans are saying after it emerged that Arnautovic was seeking an exit.
Want him gone unless his agent/brother is sacked

Marko has done a lot for us I wouldn’t stand in his way if he wanted to leave or blame him but we would want at least 50m

Sounds to me like he is just trying to get him more money at West Ham personally.
Drum up a bit of interest get his (client/brother) a bit more money at a club where he’s happy
