Everton ace Marouane Fellaini has sparked debate in the Football Transfer Tavern by welcoming bids from Chelsea for his services.
The Toffees midfielder has been in scintillating form this season pushing Everton towards a top four place and plenty of clubs around Europe are interested in signing the Belgian.
The 25-year-old is keen on a move to Stamford Bridge in order to further his career and play regular Champions League football – something that as much as Everton are improving, they cannot guarantee the hairy powerhouse.
It is unlikely that Chelsea will bid for any players until they confirm their permanent manager for next season as Rafael Benitez is clearly not involved in any deals going on at the club at present.
Linking up with compatriot Eden Hazard will be another bonus for the £30 million rated midfielder who has told Chelsea that if they want to sign him, they simply have to make a respectable bid.
Fellaini claims he is happy at Goodison Park at the moment but he knows that the West London club want to sign him even though he hasn’t spoken to anyone about a move.
“If Chelsea want to sign me, then they need to come forward with a bid for me. I have heard about Chelsea’s interest but I’ve honestly not spoken to them,” Fellaini told The Sun.
“Every season I’ve been here, top clubs have been asking about me but, for now, I’m happy at Everton.
“It might feel better to play Champions League football for Everton than Chelsea, as they gave me my debut in England.”
