Chelsea set to test Everton nerve

Chelsea set to test Everton nerve

Chelsea are set to make a transfer bid for one of David Moyes's top Everton players.

It's not the first time that Marouane Fellaini has been linked with a big money move, but a £22million bid for the Everton midfielder from Chelsea is going to have to be heavily considered if the report from the Mirror is accurate.

The Belgian International made the move to Goodison Park from Standard Liege back in 2008 and he has become a big fan favourite during his time as an Evertonian.

He's been linked with the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City before, but he thankfully signed a new five-year extension in November to stay at Everton, which puts us in a better negotiating position.

On the pitch Fellaini is invaluable and £22million is not going to replace him on the pitch, the problem comes with our financial position off it.

Are we in a position to turn it down?

I would bite their hand off If I was you - players like podolski and marin are getting bought for 6-8 million. so £22 million for fellani.....well i just can't quite believe it. everton would solve their financial problem and be able to get a replacement for him easily! boy do I wish we could take Jelavic off your hands though!

No thanks, not nearly enough for Fellaini. I would not sell him this summer, unless a ridiculous fee came in, keep him this summer, no pressure to sell since we tied him up on a 5yr deal, and hopefully have a good summer add Pienaar and maybe a few others and push for Europe. If we need money sell Rodwell or Jagielka. Fellaini should be kept at all costs, only 24, and he is world class and will only get better.

<< Chelsea fan in peace.... I wouldn't want us to pay £22m. I'm sure he's worth the dough, but there are other (cheaper) players out there who can do the job or us. I'm against all this high spending when there are some real bargains out there to be had if you look hard enough!
03/05/2012 11:20:00
hes a quality player everton must keep as rob says its not enough considering his age,ability,long contract & willingness to like any pienaar deal to involve baines,rodwell,jagielka or jelavic going to spurs!!why should everton do business with chelsea when in all liklihood they will both be contesting uefa cup positions next season.tough times ahead for chelsea if they dont win the champions league.massive respect to everton hope the come ahead of l'pool & get the investment they really need to kick on.

He's not worth £2million never mind £22 million. If we was any good we would have taken him ages ago. Anything over £5million snatch their hands off Toffeeboys. You heard it first from Willy the Football Guru and top ranker.
03/05/2012 13:49:00
Fellaini world class.. HAHAHA. Solid player but come on, 22 million! Take it and Run!
03/05/2012 14:52:00
Haha, oh Willy, you silly silly boy. Have you not seen the matches between Everton and City? Fellaini has the likes of Silva, Barry, Nasri and the other mercenaries absolutely *****ting themselves. In fact, still remember the beautiful spin move by Fellaini on Bellamy that left him completely embarrassed. Haha, Willy top ranker? I think you spelt *****er wrong.
03/05/2012 14:55:00
Don't get me wrong now he is a premiership quality midfielder i'd love at spurs but just think 22 million is a bit too much
03/05/2012 15:01:00
Oh the irony coming from a Spurs fan. I am guessing you haven't seen a lot of Fellaini there lad. But hey, I guess Modric is a world class playmaker with his grand total of 4 goals and 4 assists in 35 games and surely worth 40mil haha. I mean Steven Pienaar has 7 assists in 12 games for Everton this season, even Fellaini has 4 assists this season and he is a DEFENSIVE midfielder.
03/05/2012 15:07:00
Well I guarantee i've seen just as much as Everton as you have of spurs and between the two teams there is not one world class player as off today. Difference is we have potentially two in Bale and Walker and Fellaini is not off the same standard as them in my opinion. Luka modric wanted out all season and will be gone this summer so wer gonna take whoever wants him for every dime they got and everton should do the same with fellaini cos once a club like chelsea come calling their heads turn
