Chelsea Transfer News: Interest Mounts In £20m Fellaini

By on December 7, 2012

Russian giants Zenit St Petersburg have confirmed their interest in Chelsea target Marouane Fellaini, according to the Metro.

Fellaini has become one of the most sought-after midfielders in Europe after an impressive start to the season with Everton, which has seen him score eight goals in 13 games so far including key goals against Arsenal and Manchester City.

His form has alerted the likes of Chelsea, with the European champions believed to be lining-up a bid in excess of £20m this January.

However, the Blues will face stiff competition for Fellaini from big-spending Zenit after the Russians confirmed they are monitoring the 25-year-old ahead of the opening of the transfer window next month.

‘The management team expect to strengthen the midfield during the winter transfer window,’

‘The signings will be players of very high quality. For example, the Belgium international Marouane Fellaini is on the list – he has proved himself in his games for Everton.’

A spokesperson for Zenit is quoted as saying by the Metro.

While the Belgian international has insisted he’s happy at Goodison Park he has made no effort to hide his desire to play in the Champions League and for a club fighting for trophies each year, so it’s going to be tough for Everton to hang on to him for much longer.

    We dont need Fellaini, we already have a player in the squad that has the potential to be an amazing defensive midfielder,
    DAVID LUIZ! The main transfer that needs to happen in january is FALCAO! And if using Luiz as a midfielder leaves us short at the back look at Hummels as a great potential player to solidify the backbone of the squad, as the current squad doesnt have that stable core we had with terry, lampard, drogba but we can have the new gen of chelsea’s backbone with falcao as the striker, oscar as the mid and we have potential with either cahill or ivanovic as being the new leader in defence but please, just play David Luiz in defensive midfield, as the guy is too well suited and skilled for the position and currently plays as centre back for us with a midfielders mentality and movement.
