Arsenal show shocking interest in signing Everton star Marouane Fellaini
Arsenal has shocked the football market by approaching Everton with interest in their Belgian star Marouane Fellaini. Reportedly, the versatile forward is ready to move into a big club and prefers to stay in the Premier League.
Arsene Wenger has pounced on the opportunity to sign in Marouane Fellaini. The lanky attacking midfielder, who has a knack for scoring goals, has been in prime form for Everton this season.
Marouane Fellaini has attracted a lot of attention from clubs within the English Premier League. Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United have reportedly shown interest in Marouane Fellaini in the past.
The 24-year-old Belgium international is expected to become Arsenal’s top transfer target during the January transfer window. Marouane Fellaini has split the best defenses in the English Premier League this season.
Following Arsenal’s poor start to the season, Arsene Wenger is keen on adding reinforcements to his strike-force this winter. Arsene Wenger is hoping to replace Arsenal flop Oliver Giroud with Marouane Fellaini in the first team.
Marouane Fellaini has the ability to adapt to any position on the field, although he generally plays as a midfielder with an uncanny ability to score goals in the box.
Manchester United were visibly disturbed by Marouane Fellaini’s superb performance earlier in the season. Sir Alex Ferguson is reportedly secretly preparing a transfer offer for Marouane Fellaini.
Marouane Fellaini has won the respect of teammates from club and country over the past couple of years. Everton manager David Scott Moyes sings hymns in his praise on a regular basis and Chelsea star Eden Hazard suggested Marouane Fellaini was one of the key players in Belgium’s squad.
“It’s not just a case of chucking him up there to collect long balls, he’s a really good footballer,” Everton teammate Phil Jagielka said.
Arsene Wenger, who made three big singings during the summer transfer window, is growing tired of Oliver Giroud’s goalless spell in London. Arsenal insiders have informed that the Frenchman is on the brink of throwing his hat in the ring for Marouane Fellaini.
Just last month Marouane Fellaini informed that he will leave Everton in 2013.
“I am just starting my fifth season at Everton, this will be one of my last,” Marouane Fellaini said. “Let me remind you that I am very happy in Liverpool.”
