At the time the Toffee fans voiced their pleasure saying it was a complete waste of money for such an unproven player. But as the season has gone on the supporters have fallen in love with the player that has one of the best uni brows in the world. His hard tackling, hard working style have been one of the surprises for Everton.
Fellaini success at Everton has many other EPL teams looking to Belgium for midfield help. Manchester United, Chelski and Arsenal have all been rumored to be in for Standard Liege's Alex Wistel. Wistel is versatile, he can play on the right and the left and can also play in his natural position of defensive midfielder. If teams are going to get in the race for Wistel its going to cost more then Everton paid for Fellani.
A couple of teams have also been rumored to be in for Standard Captain Steven Defour. Defour is know as a play making for midfielder with great vision. He will not come cheap either.
Standard Liege has a developed some great midfielders over the last couple of years and by selling them at the right time has allowed them to rule the rule the Belgium League.
