In news that has positively shocked our Everton fans here at the Football Transfer Tavern it has been claimed by the Daily Mirror that their star player would be interested in joining Chelsea.
Marouane Fellani has long impressed us here at the tavern and after yet another stellar season thus far the Belgium international has been strongly linked with a move to Chelsea who are thought to be monitoring the player ahead of a potential summer bid.
Chelsea are willing to spend big in order to be able to push for the title next season and it seems Fellani would be happy to join them. He claimed: “Am I interested in Chelsea? It’s normal, right? I’ve never played in the Champions League!”
However he also added some reassuring words for Everton fans noting that: “I’m happy here, I know everyone, I get along with my team mates. It’s my home. On the other hand, I also want to take the next step. Fate will decide. Everton paid £20million and do not want to sell me for nothing. If a big club wants me, they will have to pay the price.”
Fellaini’s current club are still reeling from yesterday’s last minute defeat away to Norwich City and the Toffees know that they must maintain their good early season form to push Arsenal and Tottenham close for fourth place. David Moyes’ men face Arsenal soon and must pick up points against those directly in competition for a Champions League place in order to realise their dream.
