"I'm a guy who, mentally, I'm really strong, but for maybe the first time in my life, I cried about my career because I thought it was over", Nasri told West Ham's official website.

A West Ham United source has rubbished rumours that the club are interested in signing Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez, according to the Claret and Hugh website.

The report details that Wilson is in their sights as a potential replacement and they'd have to pay over £35million for the England internatonal, as he's been earmarked for around the £50million mark. Stoke are also believed to have a sell-on clause that would entitle them to 20% of any future transfer fee, with his contract due to expire in 2022.

A bid worth £36million from an unnamed Chinese Super League club has been turned down with manager Manuel Pellegrini determined to keep hold of his star asset.

They bought him to keep them in the Premier League last season and he did that.

With three weeks of the window remaining, though, there is a recognition that West Ham will continue to monitor Shelvey's situation and it could be they end up in a position where they can put pressure on Newcastle.

Real Madrid open talks with Jose Mourinho
Jose Mourinho has only been out of a job for a few weeks, but he is already set to return to our television screens. The other thing I have learned is to respect the clubs who want me, and those who don't want me".

It is his great desire that West Ham accept the offer from China."He knows the West Ham fans love him and he has a special connection with them, but things move on, this is the world of sport, and he hopes they can understand".

But a Hammers spokesperson said: "Marko has a contract and we fully expect him to honour it". He wants to go to a new market and challenge for titles.

West Ham host Arsenal on Saturday and Pellegrini has no qualms about playing Arnautovic despite the speculation.

It is understood West Ham will not consider selling him this month because of the difficulties they may face in replacing him. He hopes the fans can respect his wishes.

Will be hard to replace but i trust Pellegrini to do it. [tomster36]This whole thing about Arnautovic is annoying!

"Those are all rumours", said Pellegrini. [emz_dj]If Arnie wants to leave then get as much as we can for him and get him out of the club. Marko in this moment is a player of our team.
