Everton star Marouane Fellaini wanted by Chelsea and Man City signs 125,000 a week deal at Arsenal
TRANSFER Balls: A week in the life of Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini. When we last covered the story, Fellaini was on his way to Arsenal, the Gunners had made a bid and the Belgian has rejected a contract worth £70,000-week. Now read on…
Everton Manager Roberto Martinez:
“You are not talking about a player who is out of the squad or in negotiations with another club. I won’t look to speak to him about this because there is nothing to speak about. What I want is him to be ready for the next season, to be ready to take an important role at the club and understand that it is a big season for him. As an individual, he has got an exciting year in front of him and I don’t think he is personally thinking, ‘Am I going to be here?’ I don’t think that’s in his head.” – Thame Today
…Everton have yet to receive offers for the midfielder, who has a clause in his contract that would allow him to move in the event of a £24m bid. The clause expires in mid-August… Arsenal and Chelsea are interested in the 25-year-old – The Times
The British transfer window is about to open and Arsenal look set to make some big moves in the coming days. It’s understood Arsene Wenger has been given a transfer kitty of around £60m. Everton’s towering power-house midfielder Marouane Fellaini is a key target for Wenger and he could be ready to trigger the £24million release clause in the Belgium internationals contract. – Winner Sports
What was £70m is now £60m. Also, the Premier League transfer season begins on the final day of the season and ends on Augusta 31. Other than the that the report is accurate.
CaughtOffside understands that Wenger is set to make a £22m bid for Toffees midfielder Marouane Fellaini, an offer that will trigger the Belgian’s release clause which should set in motion a move to bring the 25 year old to the Emirates Stadium.
£22m or £24m, someone should tell Arsenal. The site adds that Arsenal will offer Fallaini £125,000-a week.
The Daily Mail says Fallaini wants £100,000-a week to play for Arsenal.
The Week says Fellaini earns £75,000-per-week at Everton.
Also, we learn that Zenit St Petersburg or Manchester City are eyeing Fellaini.
