Marouane Fellaini might have been a constant presence in the rumour section this summer but the Everton midfielder is still completely focused ahead of the new season. Everton have been the almost men of English football under David Moyes, losing their fair share of FA Cup semi-finals. And, Fellaini wants to correct that in the coming season as he aims to end the club’s trophy drought.
The lack of success was sighted as one of the reasons for Fellaini’s links with Chelsea and Manchester United, with the 24 year old Belgian having a long list of admirers. His combative nature in the middle of the park combined with his presence in the penalty box has marked him out as player who can shift to the next level in the ladder, something his team-mate Tim Cahill has also been associated with. But with four full years remaining in his current deal and Moyes unlikely to even entertain offers, he looks set to stay at Goodison Park.
Speaking to the club’s website ahead of their pre-season tour in Asia, Fellaini said: “First we have to start the season well, second, my aim is to win something like the FA Cup or the League Cup and to finish in the Europa League. I have been here for four years, so of course I want to win a trophy.”
