Liverpool eyeing three-year deal for Marouane Fellaini (yes, you read that right)

Marouane Fellaini's  style may not appear to be a shoe-in at Anfield but Jurgen Klopp will most probably need someone to replace Emre Can

Liverpool are reported to have drawn up a three-year contract for Marouane Fellaini.

The Man United midfielder’s contract expires at the end of the season and he wants to stay in the Premier League.

According to French newspaper L’Equipe the former Everton star could end up at Anfield.

At first sight Fellaini might not appear to be a Jurgen Klopp type of player.

He doesn’t move at full throttle, while the Reds do not place that much emphasis on high balls and crosses (or elbows).

But Klopp will need a midfield enforcer if Emre Can, as expected, leaves in the summer and ball-winner Fellaini is viewed as a decent addition to the squad.

United have shown little interest in re-signing the 30-year-old, who has also been on Turkish side Besiktas’ radar.

Ligue 1 giants Monaco and Paris Saint-Germain are also keeping tabs on him so there is no shortage of suitors.

United boss Jose Mourinho had also admitted Fellaini could leave, saying: “Is he going to stay or leave? I don’t know.

“I want him to stay, the club want him to stay.

“The process – negotiations, numbers, distances between the offer and what he wants – I really don’t know.”

So Fellaini can take his pick of Ligue 1’s current title-holders and winner-in-waiting, England’s most exciting side and Besiktas- complete with some of the most fanatic supporters in world football.
