Chelsea looking to steal Fellaini

07 June 2012 02:22

European champions Chelsea are looking to bolster their midfield options with a summer swoop for Marouane Fellaini. It’s believed that the Everton midfielder could be available for around £20 million.

Roman Abramovich is prepared to take his summer spending to the £100m mark if they can strike a deal with Everton.

Chelsea have already spent huge money in recent weeks by signing Marko Marin from Werder Bremen for £8m and Lille’s tricky winger Eden Hazard for £32m.

The club is also very close to agreeing a deal with Porto, for the Brazilian Hulk which is said to be around £38m.

The champions of Europe are keen to add an enforcer to their midfield and Fellaini tops the list.

Phil Jagielka accepted that the club would struggle to hold on to Fellaini, and it’s understood the Merseyside club will sell for around £20m.

This could spark a mass exodus from Everton as Leighton Baines is being closely tracked by Manchester United and Napoli along with Tim Cahill hinting at a move to the Middle East.

Chelsea are also looking at Ajax’s Gregory van der Wiel who is the first choice right back for Holland this summer. A series of good performances this summer could attract more interest from a host of clubs as well as Chelsea.
