West Ham rule out Arnautovic sale; Bookies wonder how striker will react against Arsenal

Marko Arnautovic’s hopes of a mega-money move to China may have been scuppered – so how will he react if he appears for West Ham United against Arsenal this Saturday?



Arnautovic’s future at the London Stadium has been one of the big talking points since the winter transfer window opened earlier this month, and reports in recent days have linked the West Ham forward with a £35million move to the big-spending Chinese Super League before the end of the month.

The 29-year-old Austrian’s brother has claimed the player is keen on making a switch to China, but the Hammers have insisted they expect him to honour the contract he signed when he joined the club back in the summer of 2017 and, as a result, he is now just 1/2 to still be a West Ham player when the January transfer window slams shut.

So having seen his dream of a big-money move to China go up in smoke, the bookmakers are wondering just how Arnautovic will react if he features in the Hammers’ Premier League clash with Arsenal this weekend?

The Austrian striker is as short at 13/10 to score anytime and 13/2 to score two or more, but William Hill is not ruling out the possibility of a public tantrum and has gone 6/1 that he is subbed off and storms straight down the tunnel, while offering 16/1 that he is shown the red card. 

“It will be interesting to see the reaction of Arnautovic and the West Ham fans during the early kick off,” William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly told Bettingpro.com.

“The odds indicate he could make it onto the scoresheet, but it is not out of the realms of possibility that he storms off the pitch and down the tunnel.”  

Latest William Hill Odds:
