Marouane Fellaini: Continues to be linked with a big-money move away from Everto

The Belgium international continues to see his long-term future at Goodison Park called into question, with Europe's top clubs falling over themselves in an effort to get to the front of the transfer queue.

Everton would be reluctant to part with a man in the form of his life, and one who has matured into a talismanic part of their plans, but money talks and the club have been prepared to part with key figures for the right price in the past.

Fellaini has made no secret of his desire to compete on the grandest of stages, but insists he would be happy to remain on Merseyside if David Moyes can oversee a top-four finish this season.

"I want to play in the Champions League, and if Everton finish in the top four then I'm happy to stay here - I'd love to do that with Everton," the 25-year-old midfielder told the Daily Mirror.

"I want to do that. I want to improve as a player and give everything for Everton.

"They brought me here from Standard Liege and gave me my chance to play in the Premier League and I always want to repay them for that. I want to go to the next level in the Champions League.

"We've got some very good players here, but if we can bring in one or two more in January then it will be a big, big help."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
