Fellaini still an Arsenal target

Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini remains a subject of interest for Arsenal, who will focus their attention on bringing the Belgian to North London after the negotiations with Real Madrid’s Gonzalo Higuain come to end, the Daily Star has reported.

Arsenal hope to sign Higuain in the near future for a fee of around £21m, and Fellaini has been linked with the Gunners this summer, along with Manchester United, who are now managed by David Moyes, the Belgian’s former boss at Everton, where he has spent five years since moving from Standard Liege in August 2008.

Fellaini has impressed many throughout his time at Everton, with Moyes once saying he had the potential to be one of the best midfielders in Europe. After five seasons in Merseyside without a trophy, Fellaini may be keen to move elsewhere for greater success.

While Fellaini, 25, has a £24m buy-out clause in his contract, Arsenal are said to be comfortable with his asking price, though it would break the club’s existing transfer record. Former Arsenal goalkeeper David Seaman would be happy for Fellaini to join, declaring:

“He is a great player. Arsenal have to change their ways a bit to get the best out of the team. He can help with that.”
