Everton should make an attempt to re-sign Marouane Fellaini from Manchester United in this summer’s transfer window.
Fellaini was strongly linked with a move away from United during last summer’s transfer window, but Jose Mourinho battled hard to keep the midfielder.
Mourinho’s persistence ultimately paid off as Fellaini signed a new contract with the 20-time English champions.
Fellaini’s deal will expire at the end of next season, however, and his future with the Red Devils is far from secure following Mourinho’s departure.
Indeed, the 87-time Belgium international has not been first choice since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer became United’s interim boss, which will remain the case for the rest of the season.
Paul Pogba, Ander Herrera and Nemanja Matic are seemingly United’s first-choice midfield three and it appears that Fellaini will have to get used to coming off the bench in the second half of the campaign.
The 31-year-old will surely struggle to earn regular minutes under United’s new manager – whoever that might be – next season, meanwhile, which will force the midfielder to consider his future this summer.
It would be fair to say that it has not quite happened for Fellaini at United.
The midfielder has made close to 200 appearances in all competitions for the Red Devils, but his style of football has not won over the majority of the fans.
Fellaini was excellent at Everton between 2008 and 2013, however, scoring 33 times and providing 26 assists in 177 appearances in all competitions.
The Goodison Park faithful absolutely loved Fellaini and there is no question that the Belgian is a huge asset when used in the correct manner.

A move to Turkey has long been mentioned, but Everton should make bringing Fellaini back to the club one of their priorities in this summer’s transfer window.
It is unlikely that the midfielder would break the bank for the Toffees and a return to Merseyside at the end of the season makes a lot of sense.
