Chelsea Transfer News: £20m Midfielder Wants Blues Move

By on June 12, 2012

The summer transfer window is open and Football Talk will bring you all the latest transfer news. Today, a Belgian midfielder talks about a possible move to Chelsea.

Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini has been talking up a potential move to Chelsea, amid rumours the Blues are set to bid for the Belgian ace.

Fellaini has enjoyed an excellent four years on Merseyside after moving to Everton from Standard Liege in the summer of 2008. The 24-year-old has gone on to play 107 games for the Toffees, scoring 14 goals, but now he feels it could be time for a change.

The Belgian midfielder is quoted in the Mirror as saying he would be open to a move to Chelsea as he would have several of his international team mates there, and he’s ready to join an ambitious club who plays in Europe every season.

“They talked about me in Chelsea? If I had to go there, I would have several friends – Eden Hazard, Romelu Lukaku, Kevin De Bruyne, Thibaut Courtois – there are many Belgians!

“If I have got to go, I will go. I am ambitious; I want to play in the Champions League or in the Europa League.”

“Every year they say I’ll be transferred to the left or right but I’m still at Everton. If it comes, I take, if it does not come, I stay at Everton, where I am happy, and where I still have a four-year contract.

“Everything goes fast in football. You can be transferred tomorrow, as you can be in one or two years.”

Only last week the Mirror claimed that Chelsea were closing in on a £20m move for Fellaini, although Real Madrid are also thought to be keeping tabs on the player after their move for Athletic Bilbao star Javi Martinez stalled.

FT Verdict

Chelsea have been linked with Fellaini for months now and with the player seemingly open to a move to Stamford Bridge, he may just be the third Belgian to join the Abramovich revolution this summer, after the clubs capture of Eden Hazard and Kevin De Bryne.

    you guys are dreaming, no chance in hell chelsea could bring in all of those players and even come close to financial fair play. forget about modric and hulk is over priced. fellani could be a good buy but id prefer to allow romeu to develop as he did well when he played

    Hey guys we need strikers like bojan kirkic, lewandoswki, hulk or pedro cuz these are young and can prove in chelsea slowly. Sorry to say this guys falcao is not he player for chelsea because he may get flop like torres. As u see roman wants revolution in the team so in my opinion i would like to see players signing for chelsea like fellani, mountinho, javi martinez.

    June 23, 2012 at 5:53 am

    Fellaini,Dembele,Moses,chelsea can afford this guys with 40m pounds instead of using it to one player and i believe Torres and Lukaku will enjoy striking role amongst these three players and please CFC should do their fans a favour by selling Sturridge cos he is akill joy

    Chelsea really nid a gud enforcer & striker in d person of Hulk to replace Drogba,den leave Lukaku as a back up in other competitions.Then lets buy d likes of Fellani to replace Essein,cos Essein is nt himself again.Also we nid a gud Right back like Van der Weil & nt Maicon.For Modric,we dnt nid him again,Hazard & Marin Marko are ok 4us.

  17. abolaji

    June 23, 2012 at 1:28 pm

    we only need hulk,felani and peraira of porto for the right back and no more.
