Arsenal have emerged as a potential destination for Manchester United midfielder, Maraoune Fellaini, should he decide to leave the club at the end of the season – according to the Express.

The Belgian midfielder arrived from Everton in 2013 for £27.5m, but his contract is due to expire next summer.

Contracts talks are continuing, but no agreement had been reached thus far, and Fellaini will be free to talk with overseas clubs in January.

United have no intention of selling him when the window re-opens and are willing to allow him to run his current deal down.

He rejected their offer in September which opens up the possibility of Fellaini leaving for free next summer with a host of clubs interested in the 29-year-old.

Despite a difficult start to his career with the Red Devils, the Belgian international has excelled under Jose Mourinho, scoring four goals in nine games, before injuries hampered his progress.

Besiktas and Galatasaray are reportedly interested in bringing him to the Turkish league with Valencia and Inter Milan also keeping tabs on his situation in Manchester.


However, it appears Arsenal will offer Fellaini the chance to stay in the Premier League if he decides to run his contract down.

Fellaini would add power and a much-needed presence to the Arsenal midfield and would weaken a Premier League rival at no cost other than wages.

He is expected to play a key role for Belgium at the 2018 World Cup in Russia which would no doubt increase the number of suitors should he decide against extending his stay at Old Trafford.
