Manchester United have so far failed to agree a new deal with Fellaini and if reports in the media are anything to go by then Arsenal are perhaps favorites to secure his signing.

The 30-year-old midfielder will be out of contract very soon and according to The Telegraph, the Gunners have launched a shock move to hire his services on a free transfer.

The British source have mentioned that the former Standard Liege midfielder has rejected Man United’s one year contract offer worth £80,000-a-week and would prefer to join Arsenal instead of moving to Italy.

Furthermore, as per RMC Sport, PSG are interested in the ex Evertonian player as well but they are not prepared to meet his wage demands.

At the moment, Fellaini is earning around €148,000-a-week (€7.6million-a-year) (The Sun) and after warming the bench last season, the French source have mentioned that he is looking to get least a deal worth €5million-a-year.

Fellaini had an injury hit campaign last term in which he could only start 5 fixtures for the Old Trafford club. Overall, he made 23 appearances in all competitions, scored 5 goals and provided 1 assist.

He has been selected in the 23-man Belgian squad for the World Cup. In your opinion, is Fellaini good enough to improve the north Londoners?
