Loads of West Ham fans have been discussing the possible exit of Marko Arnautovic, and there’s plenty of talk about a move for Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson.
West Ham fans were stunned when Arnautovic’s brother and agent, Danijel, requested that the club sell the Austrian international this month.
The 29 year-old is the subject of a £35m bid from an unnamed Chinese side, and Danijel has urged the club to accept it.

While the Hammers have staunchly denied the possibility of selling the player, it could be only a matter of time before he goes full Dimitri Payet and forces a move away from the club.
With all the talk of potential replacements for the man with seven Premier League strikes this season, plenty of fans are eyeing Bournemouth front man Wilson.
The English international has scored nine and added five assists in the league this season, and is thought to be a target for Maurizio Sarri’s Chelsea.
The Hammers would likely have to splash the entirety of the Arnautovic fee if they were to sign Wilson (Bournemouth value him at £50m), and fans are completely split on the idea.

Thats a stupid tweet, Wilson is an international and younger, scores more goals than Arnie. But he wouldn’t come to us anyway when Chelsea are looking at him. We have played better this season with Arnie out the team i know its hard to take but there are the facts!

I would take Wilson in a heartbeat.

100% take wilson but not for 50 million.. if we lose arnie there is plenty of replacements we could look at especially if he left in the summer

Agree he is not an adequate replacement. We would need to get into the 50mill bracket to get anywhere near armies quality

If Arnie left for 45 to 50 million I’d love to see us go and sign Callum Wilson.
