We look at the players likely to appear at centre midfield for Chelsea next season.
Marouane Fellaini (Everton)
The gangly Everton midfielder looks set to draw his time at Goodison Park to a close after admitting to Belgian reporters in the summer his desire to leave the club.
Strong in the air, with an eye for goal and proven at Premier League level, Chelsea may well be interested should the Goodison Park club be willing to do business. With Everton recently reporting precarious financial results, their resistance is unlikely to last much longer, but Chelsea may decide there is better value to be found elsewhere. Questions remain over the player’s temperament.
