Manuel Pellegrini denies that West Ham is interested in Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson if Marko Arnautovic leaves the club.
Chinese Super League teams Guangzhou Evergrande and Shanghai SIPG are interested in signing Arnautovic, who joined West Ham last summer.
The Austrian international has announced his desire to move to China this month, but Pellegrini will only approve the deal if he can substitute.
West Ham has been paired with Celta Vigos Maxi Gomez and Wilson as a potential substitute for Arnautovic, but Pellegrini, whose side play against Bournemouth on Saturday, insists the Hammers have no chance for the English striker.
"He's a very good striker, but the rumors we want from him are not true," Pellegrini told Wilson.
"We have our players, we have Javier Hernandez, we have Lucas Perez, we have Andy Carroll, we have Marko Arnautovic in our squad, I'm happy with all these players.
"If we do not have Arnautovic, things can happen when they happen, we'll see."
