Arsenal To Meet With Fellaini Over Possible Free Transfer

Marouane Fellaini

So if Fellaini does join the Gunners, how would he fit in?

Arsenal are reportedly interested in signing Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini and have moved ahead of AC Milan in the race to bring him in this summer.

Before United's campaign had ended, Jose Mourinho was confident that Fellaini was close to signing an extension.

Reports in France suggest that Arsenal are scheduled to meet with Marouane Fellaini this week over a potential free transfer.

Talks over extending his Manchester United deal appear to have broken down, which means he will soon be able to negotiate a move elsewhere and end his five-year stay at Old Trafford.

As such, the news emerging today - that Fellaini's representatives will meet with Arsenal ahead of the expiration of his contract on June 30 - will be met with mixed emotions from fans of the Red Devils.

Arsenal will surely have to improve on Fellaini's contract worth £80,000-a-week, that he has turned down at United.

The big Belgian defensive midfielder has always been linked with a move from Old Trafford this summer but the smart money had him heading to Roma or AC Milan.

Emery was also keen on Fellaini during his time as Paris Saint-Germain's manager and wanted to sign the Belgian in January.

Fellaini has been selected in Belgium's World Cup squad and the Red Devils had hoped he would sign his extension before he travelled to Russian Federation for the World Cup.

Are you surprised by Arsenal's reported interest in the midfielder?
