Arsenal and Chelsea are keeping tabs on Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini, according to Goal.com.

The report claims that Fellaini is considering his future at Everton with the Belgian having increasing doubts over the clubs ability to compete at the very top.

Everton missed out on a place in the FA Cup final after being beaten by Mersey rivals Liverpool last Saturday and manager David Moyes has done miracles working on a shoe-string budget for several years now. Everton’s financial struggles have been well documented and they may be forced to sell one of their prized assets if a wealthy benefactor isn’t found.

Goal.com suggest that the Belgian international has informed friends that while he wants to remain in the Premier League, he’s not convinced he can fulfil his ambitions at Everton, opening up the possibility of a summer move.

The 24-year-old can play as both a defensive midfielder and in a more advanced attacking role, and has been a huge success at Goodison Park following his £13.9m move from Standard Liege in 2008.

Chelsea are said to be in the market for a midfielder, while Arsenal may also turn to Fellaini if they miss out on top target Yann M’Vila.

      He’ll have a release clause triggered by an offer, Everton need to sell, and they will if the right price comes along. He now wants CL and who can blame him, he’s put in a great shift at Everton, we can’t complain if we can’t match his aspiration. The best he can now do for the club is to get a good price quickly so we can use the money to buy elsewhere. I would be amazed to still se him play for us next season. Reality hurts!

      After the game against Man U do you still think he still lacks Arsenal quality? He was everywhere, winning everything and even scored!
