Chelsea are keen on Everton midfield powerhouse Marouane Fellaini.

Toffees boss David Moyes hailed Fellaini as one of the best midfielders in the Premier League after his performance at Arsenal in Saturday's 2-2 draw and the Belgian has certainly recaptured his best form at Goodison.

Marouane's Dad, Abdel Latif Fellaini, reckons his son's work is not going unnoticed with the league leaders viewing him as a long-term replacement for Michael Ballack.

"He's been voted man of the match three times in his last five games," said Fellaini Snr.

"It makes no difference to him as he has got his feet on the ground.

"The big clubs see that he is doing well. So he is very closely followed by Chelsea.

"But he has a contract for three seasons.

"I hope that I will see him work at a big club," he added to HNB. "Marouane belongs at a really top club and he will only get better."
