Everton midfielder demanding big bucks to make Emirates Stadium switch, with Gunners unwilling to meet £24m buy-out clause.
Arsenal are facing an uphill struggle to sign top target Marouane Fellaini this summer, according to the Daily Mail.
The Gunners are reportedly keen to sign the Everton midfielder, who has just enjoyed a fine campaign for the Toffees.
Fellaini admitted as early as September last year that he would consider leaving Goodison Park for Champions League football, with former Everton boss David Moyes admitting at the time that the Belgium international would be sold for the ‘right’ price.
But Arsenal are currently refusing to meet the 25-year-old’s £100,000-a-week wage demands and are also reluctant to meet his £24m release clause.
The former Standard Liege player is under contract until 2016 and it is understood his advisors have told Arsenal that Fellaini is willing to spend another season on Merseyside, in the hope of securing an ever better deal next summer.
