Chelsea will continue their summer spending with a move for £20m-rated Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini, according to the Mirror.

Chelsea have already spent £40m on Eden Hazard and Marko Marin this summer, while a £38m deal to sign Brazilian striker Hulk is also close to being completed, and the Mirror claims that Blues owner Roman Abramovich is ready to take his spending towards the £100m mark by splashing a further £20m on the Belgian ace.

Fellaini has been a stand-out performer at Goodison Park in recent seasons having made the move to Merseyside from Standard Liege in 2008.  David Moyes played him in a more advanced role behind the striker last season, but it’s thought Chelsea would utilise him in his more familiar role as a defensive midfielder.

The Mirror believe that the 24-year-old could be available for £20m this summer, as Everton continue to struggle due to their financial woes.

FT Verdict

Chelsea have been linked with Fellaini for some time now and with Abramovich in the mood to spend, we can see the giant Belgian midfielder finally making the move to London this summer.

    Essien may be sold so may be maluda and the like of ferera. Fellaine and michu are better, younger and more economical. Michu can be used as a prolific striker in europa league other than spent torres and demba ba in epl, fa and capital one with torres
