Arsenal 'Genuinely Interested' In Signing Marouane Fellaini

Arsenal 'Genuinely Interested' In Signing Marouane Fellaini

Arsenal are interested in acquiring the services of Marouane Fellaini according to reports in France.

Journalist Patrick Juillard reports that the Belgian will meet with representatives of Arsenal this week. Fellaini's contract with Manchester United runs out at the end of the month.

According to Paul Hirst of The Times, the London club's interest in the player is real.

Last month, Fellaini said in an interview with Belgian magazine Sport/Foot that Jose Mourinho and Manchester United had made a mistake last summer by not offering him a new contract.

"Now I am in a strong position, especially since Mourinho has stated that he wants to keep me," said the 30-year-old who was today named in the Belgium squad for the World Cup.

Last year I went to the coach and I said that I wanted a new contract. I then had a second meeting, but I will not ask it 10 times. Afterwards I became important for the team. And a good player costs at least 50m Euros. The club knows that they went wrong there.

In Unai Emery's chance to make a good first impression with Arsenal supporters, the signing of Fellaini - even for nothing - would do him no favours.

It would not take an Arsenal aficionado - and a quick Twitter search can confirm - to guess that fans are not impressed with the link.
