Big spending Russian’s Zenit St Petersburg have targeted a January transfer window move for Everton’s Marouane Fellaini.

The club have already splashed the cash on the likes of Porto striker Hulk and Belgian Alex Witsel from Benfica. The duo cost Zenit who are bankrolled by Russian gas giants Gazprom, a cool £64million.

With that kind of financial muscle if they are serious about a move for Felli then they are a club who could back it up with a serious offer for the 25-year-old.

“The management team expect to strengthen the midfield during the winter transfer window.’ A spokesperson for Zenit told The Echo.

They added: “The signings will be players of very high quality. For example, the Belgium international Marouane Fellaini is on the list – he has proved himself in his games for Everton.”

The Echo have reported that Everton have denied receiving any contact from the Russian club.
