MAROUANE Fellaini has opened the door to a Chelsea move after he admitted that he wants to play at European level.
The Everton midfielder who signed a new long-term contract in November has admitted that the lure of continental competition is strong and that he has always dreamed of playing in the Champions League.
A move to Chelsea would allow Fellaini to play at a higher level taking on the giants of Europe, including Barcelona and Real Madrid.
The Belgium insists he is happy at Goodison Park but admitted that missing out on Champions League was not perfect.
Fellaini said: “If I have got to go, I will go. If not, I repeat, I am at Everton.
“I am ambitious; I want to play in the Champions League or in the Europa League.
“Last season we finished seventh with Everton, and we were not able to qualify for Europe, which was a shame.
“If an ambitious club comes in for me? Why not, just to gain experience but I’m on vacation right now, I do not give [speculation] too much attention.
“Every year they say I’ll be transferred to the left or right but I’m still at Everton.
“If it comes, I take, if it does not come, I stay at Everton, where I am happy, and where I still have a four-year contract.
“Everything goes fast in football. You can be transferred tomorrow, as you can be in one or two years.”
