Chelsea Approach For Fellaini : The Belgian Is Seen As A Perfect Replacement For Frank Lampard

Chelsea’s long time Belgian target, Marouane Fellaini could be the latest player to join the club. He is seen as the perfect replacement for club legend Frank Lampard

Fellaini has been on Chelsea’s radar for some time, while Manchester United have also shown interest, while team-mate Leighton Baines is believed to also be a target for both clubs.Chelsea are reported to have made a bid between £25m-£30m and this should be enough to get his services.


Everton have had losses in the past year and the cash strapped club could sell one big player to cover up for their losses. The departure of either Baines or Fellaini could see the club overcome the £10m loss from last year. Apart from this, the club has a £40m debt which also needs to be cleared.

But Manager David Moyes still feels he could retain all his players.

“I don’t really study the figures because it’s not my department,” he said.

“I just know that we sold players last year, but there’s not that kind of pressure this time.
“We only sold Jack Rodwell recently and last season we sold Mikel Arteta, so we have already raised some money.
“We have got a small amount of money I could use this month, but it’s only enough to get me a loan deal. Last January we had to sell to bring players in, but I’m not planning to sell anyone this time.”
