Chelsea is in the market for Everton star Marouane Fellaini
Chelsea have been asked to shell £30 million to sign in the Everton crown jewel Marouane Fellaini. It seems like the Merseyside club has decided to play hard-ball against any club that approaches with transfer interest over their young Belgium midfielder.
Marouane Fellaini still has three years left on his contract with Everton, which is one of the biggest reasons behind his hyped up price. Everton snubbed a £20 transfer proposal for Marouane Fellaini during the summer transfer window.
Everton is desperately trying to hold on to Marouane Fellaini. The 25-year-old has been in phenomenal form for the English club this season. The Belgium international has scored in eight goals in 16 Premier League games this season.
Marouane Fellaini is bent on moving into a big-money club in January or the summer transfer window. The versatile midfielder has already expressed that the primary motive behind his away move is not money, but to increase the opportunity of winning silverware.
Everton posted annual losses of £9 million last, in spite of which David Scot Moyes and the administration are ready to sign in players to persuade Marouane Fellaini into extending his stay at Goodison Park.
Reportedly, Everton are going after Manchester City winger Scott Sinclair and Molde defender Vegard Forren. Everton scouts have been monitoring both players for some time now.
Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich will have to cough up a couple of extra millions to convince Everton into letting go Marouane Fellaini. Chelsea manager Rafael Benitez hopes to use Marouane Fellaini’s compatriot Eden Hazard to convince the tall Belgian to join him at Stamford Bridge.
The 23-year-old English winger Scott Sinclair is on the verge of exiting Manchester City, although he was signed in only six months ago for £8 million from Swansea City.
Meanwhile, the Molde manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is wary of interest in his star defender Vegard Forren. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has warned Everton that he will not let go off his prized asset cheaply.
“We have in mind that Everton may bid for Vegard,” Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told reporters. “There are plenty of clubs who have been to see him many times. We’ll see if anyone really wants him if they make a bid. But he will not be cheap.”
On the other hand, Vegard Forren admits he is quite interested in a move to the lustrous Premier League.
“Everton are a great club,” Vegard Forren said. “I feel ready. I have had many great matches this season and it tempts me to take the next step.”
