“I would definitely be upset if I left”
The striker said it had been a “very difficult” campaign for him personally but could not say which teams he had spoken to – and leaving West Ham would be difficult.
“I’ve been here for eight and a half years now, I’ve become the club’s top scorer and I’ve loved every moment of it,” Antonio said.
“Every moment is somewhere close to my heart and I will always seek it. I love the fans, I loved my time at West Ham.
“It’s just one of those things. I’m not saying goodbye, I’m basically saying, if it happens, it happens and if it doesn’t, it doesn’t.
“I won’t be upset staying and I certainly will be upset if I leave because obviously I’ve enjoyed my time here, but football is football.
“Players move, players stay and eight and a half years at a club, I would never have thought of that because before coming to West Ham I stayed at a club for a maximum of two years.
“I still have a year and a half here. I can’t say I’m going because I still have a year and a half left at the club.”
