Many Arsenal fans have been calling for Everton’s Marouane Fellaini to join the club for a while now. He has just come off the back of possibly his best season yet and he claimed earlier in the season that he was going to leave Everton this summer but the reports have become a bit less regular of late.
There were reports a couple of weeks ago that Arsenal had made a bid for him but there has been no real news since then. The point of this article is to discuss IF Fellaini came to the club, where would he play?
As we know, there is a gap in the Arsenal squad at the moment, defensive midfield. Since Alex Song left, Abou Diaby has been the only player who has the required attributes to play there and protect the defence but he spends most of his time injured and that has led to Mikel Arteta and Aaron Ramsey playing there.
Fellaini began his career in that position and has slowly been moved into more advanced positions by David Moyes at Everton and he hasn’t played as a proper defensive midfielder for a couple of years now. He does have the ability to play there but would it take away his good attacking ability?
Of course the club could buy another player to play in defensive midfield and maybe even try Vermaelen there and Fellaini could play in an advanced position. There is a problem with this too though as Arsenal have plenty of players who belong there.
Santi Cazorla, Mikel Arteta, Aaron Ramsey, Tomas Rosicky and Jack Wilshere have all played in and around the position and there simply isn’t room for Fellaini.
Arsenal fans, help me out. Where would or should Fellaini play if he comes to Arsenal?
