There can be a lot of silly rumours in the summer transfer window but this one has more than a little weight to it.

It’s a strange story and one which will cause more than a little confusion amongst Arsenal fans. Marouane Fellaini is far from the most popular player amongst most football fans but wouldn’t be the worst free signing given Arsenal’s transfer budget.
