Chelsea Target Everton's Dynamo

Chelsea Target Everton’s Dynamo 

With the departures of Essien and Raul Meireles, it is pretty clear that Chelsea are in the hunt for a good central midfielder who can perform consistently week in and week out. In the past couple of days goal.com, The Daily Mail and many other English and Belgian sources have linked Chelsea with Marouane Fellaini.

Reports suggest that Chelsea are now stepping up their interest in Everton’s midfielder Marouane Fellaini and a bid looks likely in the January transfer window especially after Fellaini expressing this desire to leave and David Moyes declaring him available for transfer “for the right price”.

Well we all know that Chelsea lack options in central midfield after the departures of Essien and Meireles. Lampard is not getting any younger and faster and Mikel is now starting to get consistent but is a bit slow and not that attack minded and creative. 

Chelsea are also looking for a long term replacement for Lampard and I think Fellaini could be a very good player to replace him in the bigger picture. He is fast, creative, physical & strong and the perfect kind of player that Chelsea need in that role.
He could be deployed right behind a host of bright attacking players like Hazard, Mata, Oscar and Moses and would surely help the team attack and fill that defensive hole as well. He certainly has the eye for a pass and his physical attributies are pretty good as well. He is a good header of the ball and can go past people with his strength and power.

In the opening game of the 2012–13 Premier League season against Manchester United, Fellaini received plaudits for his outstanding performance, As he scored the only goal in a 1–0 victory. He scored again in the following game, a 3-1 win away against Aston Villa.

He moved to England to join Everton. At Everton he was the club’s Young Player of the Season for 2008–09.

The Blues have an array of attacking options in the form of Eden Hazard, Oscar, Juan Mata, Ramires, Victor Moses and Marko Marin, but Roberto Di Matteo wants someone who can sit in behind them. The west London outfit have targeted the £25 million-rated Belgium international as doubts grow over the effectiveness of the club’s current central midfield options.

Roberto Di Matteo is favouring a 4-2-3-1 formation at the moment but he does not see John Obi Mikel and Frank Lampard as the future and wants Fellaini on board to fill one of the roles.

Fellaini revealed during the international break that this could be his final season at Goodison Park, claiming: “in January or at the end of the season I will turn to another club or championship.” 

The versatile midfielder signed a new five-year contract last November but is concerned about whether his ambitions can be met at Goodison Park.

In Di Matteo’s preferred 4-2-3-1 system, Lampard and Mikel have started together in three of Chelsea’s four Premier League games, as well as in the one-off C
ommunity Shield and Super Cup fixtures. 

But Lampard turned 34 in June and is in the final year of his contracts and is not regarded as a long-term option in the centre, while Mikel has yet to prove that he can be a consistent performer.

Fellaini has been in great form for Everton recently and has put up solid performances week in and week out!

The Belgian has operated off the main striker this season in an attacking midfield role but has generally been used by David Moyes as a midfield anchorman.

“I won’t say there’s no chance in the next window because everybody is available throughout the world if the offer is right,” the Scot said. “But one thing I know is the transfer window is closed so he’s not going anywhere right now.”

Well as of now we can only keep staying in touch with all these reports and rumours and  see what happens. For me he would be an amazing signing for Chelsea but in football you never know anything so keeping that in mind I’d only like to say KTBFFH!

Do let me know what you think about Fellaini and all these rumours, etc!
