According to various sources, Arsenal are set to talk to Marouane Fellaini’s representatives in a late bid to lure the Belgian to the Emirates on a free transfer.
The lanky midfielder, 30, will be a free agent in the coming weeks when his current Manchester United deal comes to an end.
He’s so far rebuffed their offer of a one-year contract extension and had been heavily tipped to join AC Milan, who reportedly tabled a three-year deal.
Arsenal were heavily linked with Fellaini before he moved to Old Trafford in a deal worth £27.5 million.
“I will not reveal the details, but Arsenal wanted me this summer,” he said in September 2013, not long after joining the David Moyes revolution. LOL. Arsenal went on to sign Mesut Ozil instead.
We’ve no idea if there’s any truth in this rumour and honestly, we’re not exactly drooling at the prospect of Fellaini joining us.
Some reports seem to be claiming that Unai Emery is a fan – he apparently tried to lure him to PSG – and we guess, if there’s a positive, it would stop him from scoring last minute winners against us for United.
