The 25-year-old is known for being extremely temperamental and his reported desire to be paid around £100,000 a week could prove a major stumbling block. However, it would be almost guaranteed to be money well spent, as in Fellaini we would have a player desperate to prove himself ahead of next summer’s World Cup in Brazil.
Although he does prefer to play a more attacking role, the former Standard Liege man could prove to be the perfect foil for Mikel Arteta in the middle of the park and it shouldn’t take them long to strike up an understanding, following their time together at Everton. After Jack Wilshere’s strong finish to the campaign in his preferred number 10 role, it now looks to be the position where he will be played throughout next term and Fellaini would undoubtedly replace his steel; for the first time for almost a decade, we would have someone who can dominate in the air.
Despite his wages, Fellaini would be an excellent addition to our squad. With some other exciting stars set to sign in the summer, he could well turn out to be a key man as Mr Wenger looks to build a side capable challenging for the title, a development long overdue in the eyes of fans hoping to cash out at betfair.com.
