West Ham eye Callum Wilson as Arnautovic alternative

West Ham are interested in Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson as a potential replacement for Marko Arnautovic.

Arnautovic has been linked with a £35 million move to China, with his brother and agent Danijel claiming that the 29-year-old would like the move to happen, while West Ham have strongly insisted their star striker is not for sale.

However, the Austrian would be set for a huge salary hike if he were to move to the far east and with the Hammers having a chance to almost double the £20m outlay that they coughed up just 18 months ago, there is a chance that he could still leave the club this month.

According to the Mail on Sunday, West Ham are looking at Bournemouth forward Callum Wilson as a potential replacement for Arnautovic should they allow him to leave.

Wilson has already attracted the attention of Chelsea this month, with Maurizio Sarri looking to bolster his attacking options, although a move to East London could offer more game time than a move to Stamford Bridge.

Bournemouth are under no pressure to sell, and could therefore demand a hefty price tag for their talisman striker, who has netted nine goals in 20 Premier League games this season.
