Should Arsenal go for want-away Fellaini in January?

It seems that Belgian players have taken the Premiership by storm this season, and although Eden Hazard and Thomas Vermaelen have been extremely impressive in the first few games, neither were quite as imperious as Marouane Fellaini when Everton beat Man United in the first game of this campaign.

The Belgium international has been steadily improving in the four years he has been at Everton and he has been strongly linked with both Arsenal and Chelsea in the past, and now it seems that he inviting clubs to tempt him away from Goodison Park.

“I am just starting my fifth season at Everton,” Fellaini was quoted as saying in the Belgian press. “This will be one of my last. I have seen everything. In January or at the end of the season I will turn to another club or league.”

Arsene Wenger has made it clear that if a “top top player” becomes available then Arsenal will make a move, and he said just before the transfer window closed: “If we find a special player who can find us a plus we will do it, if not we will not do it.

“I’m relaxed about the window but you want always to improve your squad and if we find a top, top player we will do it.

“We are working very, very hard. We have resources available so if it’s not happening now it will happen in December.”

Could Fellaini fit the bill? Especially if Abou Diaby succumbs to his usual injury problems?

    That was made up by a Belgian paper. He came out and said he wants to stay where he is

    I think it depends entirely on our position in December. If were top 3 with a fit Diaby, Wilshere, Ramsey I simply cant see us buying Fellaini. However.. If were in bad shape in the league with our usual injury issues this one looks like a very popular move. In Arsene we trust!

    fellaini would strengthen our already strong midfield beyond belief!! but the transfer seems highly unlikely but who cares we got diaby,wilshere,arteta,cazorla,rosicky!! THAT MY FRIENDS IS A WORLD CLASS MIDFIELD!!!

    Players have a habit of changing their loyalty as much as the wind changes direction…Feillani will be an asset to any team he plays in!

    Fellaini is definately a plus, he’s available for the Champion League if we are through to the knock stages.
    Hopefully we are still in all 4 competition comes January and his addition, if we get him, it’s definately a plus.

    With our current midfield, we don’t need him. However, if that changed, and we sold one or two, then I’d take him. What we need is another solid, proven striker.

    Definitely would be surplus with our midfeild as it stands. Younger guys should be given a chance first and with players returning from injury we are well stocked. But we will see come January.

    As much as I like him, we don’t need him. I feel Frimpong and Coquelin should be given a chance.

    Good move for wenger. We can’t just rely on the squad we have. We comPete in 4 competitions this season. We need to rest some of our players. Fellaini will bring more depth in the side. Sign him wenger.

    See how he plays now that the window is closed before making a decision on him. I get the feeling he was playing for a move away. He’s a top player, but not a consistent match winner, nor would he be first on the team sheet of our midfield Players.

    Noooo I dont want him. What kinda attitude is that…coming out with a statement like this days after the transfer window shuts. I want players who shut up and play like our captain.
    Long live TV5, true Gooner.

    I hate such players. your club gives their all for you and the minute you become top class you want to move? arteta DID NOT do that! he was loyal and left on mutual consent because he couldnt offer more.Felliani can!!! dembele is another idiot! He would have been fulham’s key player if he ddint leave.

    Not another midfielder. On paper we have arguably the best midfield in the premiership once Wilshere and Rosicky return from their injuries. The existing midfield is going an excellent job and should be strengthened furthermore once those two return. Depending on what the situation with Walcott (who I believe is now one of the central strikers) we could use a striker in January. We have a top quality and versatile midfield at our disposal (the Russian, Welsh and Czech captains aren’t guaranteed a starting berth). What more could we want in the midfield. I think the squad is pretty good. We could use a striker and/or a versatile defender in January should the current squad remain injury free and we offload some of the players we couldn’t offload in the summer.

    I’d love to have his presence in the midfield. He can absolutely dominate a game as he did against Man U. in their opening match of the season. He would give us some much needed goal threat on corners and free kicks. With Diaby staying fit I don’t see it happening though. We still have to shop Arshavin off somewhere! Maybe if AA23 & Rosicky both moved on we’d move for him.

    i think his would be positive for the club it would show everyone that we re serious title challengers especially if we bet chelsea or man city to sign him hes a great player too not particularly bad at anything can tackle,pass,shoot,head,control and is very strong…top player
