Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini has emerged as the No 1 transfer target for big-spending Chelsea as owner Roman Abramovich continues to rebuild his playing squad.

The Champions League-winning Blues remain managerless, but that has not stopped Abramovich already sanctioning deals for Eden Hazard and Marko Marin, who cost the club £32million and £8m respectively.

And according to the Daily Mirror, 24-year-old Belgian Fellaini is set to become the latest big-name arrival at Stamford Bridge.

Fellaini has established himself as one of the best all-round midfielders in the Premier League since his move to Everton in 2008, and he confirmed that reputation with a virtuoso performance for his country in their 1-0 loss to England at Wembley last weekend.

Chelsea are keen to strengthen their midfield with Frank Lampard approaching his 34th birthday and fitness doubts remaining over Michael Essien.

The Toffees would be prepared to sell should they make a significant profit on the £15m they paid Standard Liege for Fellaini nearly four years ago.
