Chelsea have been given the green light to make an offer for long term target Marouane Fellaini according to the Metro.

Tickets are now available for upcoming Premier League fixtures including Arsenal tickets, Manchester United tickets, Manchester City tickets, Newcastle United tickets, Liverpool FC tickets and Tottenham Hotspur tickets

The Toffees star will apparently be offloaded by Everton as they look to cash-in on the Belgian midfielder. The 25 year old was booed by his own fans after a poor display against Wigan Athletic and it appears that chairman Bill Kenwright is looking to balance the books by selling Fellaini as well as left-back Leighton Baines.

Fellaini started the season with a bang, scoring goals regularly and helping Everton to mount a genuine push for a Champions League berth but in recent months he has been less effective.

The former Standard Liege man has scoring in just two Premier League matches in 2013 but if Everton are to sell one of their prized assets they will certainly demand a big fee for the powerful midfielder.

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich may well be keen to bring in a ‘Marquee’ signing or two to help appease his club’s supporters after a difficult season and Fellaini may well be seen as a replacement for Frank Lampard, with the veteran England man looking likely to leave the West London club when his contract runs out this summer.
