Marouane Fellaini was last week "happy" to stay at Everton, so one imagines he will be delighted to hear Chelsea have been linked with him again.

The Times say the Blues have earmarked the Belgian midfielder as the ideal goalscoring replacement for the departing Frank Lampard, who is interesting Manchester United again.

Fellaini scored at Cheltenham on Monday

Fellaini has been vocal in his desire to leave Everton on at least two occasions this campaign, both when he has been away on international duty with Belgium.

He joined the Toffees for £15m in 2008 and after five years' quality service prospective buyers may have to to pay double his last transfer fee. His contract expires in 2016, which guarantees Everton a hefty fee if and when he does leave Goodison Park.

Fewer clubs are being bracketed with Wilfried Zaha since last week with Manchester United emerging as the winger's probable destination when he bids farewell to Crystal Palace.

The Mail write United expect to beat Tottenham to the signature of the 20-year-old, who made his England debut away to Sweden at the end of last year.

Knowing me, knowing you

Zaha would probably be the long-term replacement for Nani, MIA since United's win in Braga on 7 November. It's the worst kept secret Ferguson wants rid of him and with his contract up next year, Fergie's wish is imminent.

Be careful what you wish for, Luka Modrić. The Croat, experiencing a miserable time at Real Madrid with all that in-fighting and 16-point-a-trailing, has offered the first hint that Spain may not be for him.

"It’s very demanding to adjust to a huge club like Real Madrid," he said. Especially when you can't get in the team.

Metro claim that quote has ALERTED Chelsea and Manchester City.

Nuri Sahin's quite good, but he's no Jonjo Shelvey (teacher's pet), and so Brendan Rodgers could be about to cut short the Turk's loan spell on Merseyside.

The Mail claim Sahin could return to Borussia Dortmund, whom he left for £6m to join Real Madrid in 2011.

And what of Danny Graham? He has scored three goals in as many games, which is timely for a benchwarmer in January, a nd Sunderland could be about to offer the Swansea striker more game-time on Wearside.

Martin O'Neill, who has more strikers than he lets on, could be ready to partner Steven Fletcher with the former Watford goalscorer, according to the Telegraph.
