Chelsea and Arsenal set for Everton battle?

There have been some rumours emerge suggesting that Arsenal and Chelsea could go head-to-head for the services of Marouane Fellaini who, according to reports has a £22 million clause in his contract.

Fellaini signed a new five-year contract at Goodison Park in 2011 and it is now believed that extension included a buyout clause, and although it can only be triggered by clubs competing in the Champions League, it could still set clubs across Europe clamouring for his signature.

Chelsea have been keen on Fellaini for a long time and with midfield stalwart Frank Lampard looking certain to depart Stamford Bridge in the summer, the Blues’ hierarchy could decide that now is the perfect time to swoop for the Belgian international.

But London rivals Arsenal may not let the Blues have a free run at the 25-year-old, with Arsene Wenger weighing up whether to make Fellaini his record signing as he looks to bolster his midfield options. (The Metro)

Chelsea have already started doing business this month and it seems they are looking to be very busy in this window as they line up the big Belgian star to replace Lampard. But they do not need him right now and should be thinking about strengthening in other areas first.

As for Arsenal, Wenger doesn’t even look close to signing anybody and it seems he will wait until the last minute to do some business. But he could decide to spend it on one or two big transfers like the £22 million rated Fellaini, who would be a great addition to his squad.

    Marouane Fellaini will be a good addition to arsenal. he’s a former team mate of Arteta and play along side Vemelean on the National team and he’s an EPL player, so adaptation will not be a problem. If Fellaini joins us, arsenal will be a serious contender for the premiership next season.
