Arsenal are preparing to gazump Manchester United’s bid for the Belgian, who was heavily linked to both of the EPL giants at the start of the season, with apparently Manchetser United having the edge due to Fellaini’s former manager David Moyes. Manchester United have already had their combined bid rejected for two of the Toffees’ best men Fellaini and Leighton Baines reported to be around £28m which Everton termed it as ‘insulting’.
The Express are reporting that Arsenal are set to reenter the race for the Merseyside midfielder by lodging in a £20m bid which is considered to be enough to secure his services as Fellaini is attracted to sign the deal for any Champions League playing club.
t’s clear we’re looking to add to our midfield options before the window closes following injuries to Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Mikel Arteta, with reports linking us with bids for the likes of Yohan Cabaye, Paul Pogba and Geoffrey Kondogbia in recent days, so it wouldn’t be a huge surprise if Wenger made a move for Fellaini.
Fellaini will be the ideal player to land at Emirates as Arsenal lack the power in the midfield. Fellaini with his exceptional hold up play and energetic physical presence can go past any midfield in the league. His versatility and knack of scoring goals makes him a lethal player, which is exactly what Gunners need in their midfield.
