Marouane Fellaini

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…

June 28:

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

June 27:

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.

June 26:

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.

June 25: 

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.
