WEST HAM and Shanghai SIPG have agreed on a £25million transfer fee for Marko Arnautovic, according to reports.
The Austria international has passed his medical with the Chinese Super League side, but still has to agree personal terms.
According to talkSPORT, Arnautovic’s switch to China could be completed this weekend.
The 30-year-old is determined to end his spell with the Hammers this summer after he handed in his second transfer request.
He has been trying to engineer a move away from the club since the January transfer window.
Shanghai SIPG tried to lure him away from London with a lucrative £300,000-per-week offer.
But the move failed to materialise and the 30-year-old was handed a contract extension.
The club have now cut their losses with the Austrian star – who joined the club from Stoke City for a club record £20m fee.
Manuel Pellegrini has given Arnautovic the green light to leave as he wants to get rid of his disruptive influence.
