Marouane Fellaini: Has been linked with move to Chelsea

Fellaini fuelled rumours tipping him for a Stamford Bridge switch on Saturday when he told Chelsea to make a bid if they want to sign him.

The Belgian international has long been linked with a move to West London but the Blues failed to come forward in last month's transfer window.

The 25-year-old has three years left to run on his contract at Goodison Park and manager David Moyes has spoken of his desire to keep him at the club.

Mirallas, Fellaini's Everton and Belgium team-mate, has also called on the towering midfielder to stay put.

He told The Sun: "We definitely want him to stay.

"He's a real strength. Having Marouane in your team helps because he scares the opposition - although he doesn't scare me because we're always on the same team!"

Mirallas says Fellaini was a major factor in his decision to join Everton from Olympiakos last summer, adding: "He convinced me Everton was the place for me."

S I've always envisioned him as a Pirlo or a Scholes, though he needs some of Andy Murray's conditioning and shiny, ankle supports to keep his own from buckling under the tackles that will (inevitably) come his way. He's got the physique and low centre of gravity to flourish, but needs to make himself more resilient.

Time For Another Wenger U-Turn On Wilshere?

A

s a United fan I fell I can say this without accusation of bias, Sergio Aguero is for me the only player close to Ronaldo or Messi, what goes against him is his injury record, Hazard is good in fits but doesn't give enough end product in my eyes, Tevez would be 4th for me
