West Ham has agreed to sell troublesome striker Marko Arnautovic to Chinese Super League club Shanghai SIPG for £23million according to Sportsmail.
The London club rejected offers believed to be around £32.5m, for the 30-year old in February and he subsequently agreed on an improved contract while pledging his allegiance to the club's cause.
However, his brother and agent Danijel has continued to look for a more lucrative move and told West Ham of his desire to leave last month.
Manuel Pellegrini and the club's hierarchy have decided it would be better to sell than keep a disruptive influence and the fee will go towards finding a replacement.
Maxi Gomez of Celtic Vigo and Salmon Rondon of West Brom are among their targets though Gomez wants to join Valencia.
Stoke City are understood to be due to receive around £460,000 from Arnautovic's sale owing to a 20 per cent sell-on clause.
