Fellaini could leave Everton for an ‘ambitious club’

Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini has insisted that he is happy at Goodison Park but has refused to rule out the prospect of leaving for an ‘ambitious club’.

The Belgian has been linked with a move to European Champions Chelsea in recent weeks despite signing a new long-term deal last season to remain on Merseyside with La Liga winner’s Real Madrid also reportedly interested.

Fellaini has dampened talk that he could leave David Moyes’ side in the summer but admits that he is ambitious and wants to play European football.

He told Belgian radio station RTBF.”If I have got to go, I will go, if not, I repeat, I am at Everton.

“I am ambitious; I want to play in the Champions League or in the Europa League. Last season we finished seventh with Everton, and we were not able to qualify us for Europe, which was a shame.

“If an ambitious club comes in for me? Why not, just to gain experience but I’m on vacation right now, I do not give [speculation] too much attention.”

The 24-year-old is no stranger to transfer speculation having been linked with a move every year since joining the Toffees in 2008 and says he is unconcerned by speculation instead focusing on remaining fit ahead of the next Premier League campaign.

“Every year they say I’ll be transferred to the left or right. But I’m still at Everton! If it comes, I take, if it does not come, I stay at Everton, where I am happy, and where I still have a four-year contract,” he said.

“Everything goes fast in football. You can be transferred tomorrow, as you can be in one or two years. For now, I’m on vacation, I try to arrive fresh at the start of next season. If there are any concrete offers yet? If this is the case, I am not aware.”
