Patient Fellaini happy to let Everton prove their ambitions

Marouane Fellaini believes Everton could match his ambitions.

The Belgian international has been one of the stars of the Premier League this season, and his form hasn’t gone unnoticed by rivals clubs as well as those from abroad. Arsenal and Chelsea, for instance, are believed to be lining up bids for his signature in January, whilst Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho is also an admirer.

David Moyes has reluctantly seen a number of players depart Goodison Park in recent years, dating back to 2004 when Wayne Rooney was allowed to move to Manchester United in a £27million deal. The likes of Joleon Lescott and Jack Rodwell have joined Manchester City, whilst Spanish midfield maestro Mikel Arteta left for the Gunners.

Fellaini has widely been tipped to become the next big-name departure, especially as the Toffees could double the £15million they paid Standard Liege for his signature back in 2008. However, the 25-year-old midfielder, who has played in a more advanced role this term, has indicated that he is in no rush to make an exit from Merseyside.

"There is in interest in me," he is quoted as saying by ESPN. "But Everton are an ambitious club as well. I don't think they will let their best players go just like that. I want to play for one of the biggest clubs one day. But I am patient."
