DAVID MOYES believes Everton can match the ambition of Marouane Fellaini after the towering Belgian produced yet another man-of-the-match display.
The 24-year-old scored his sixth goal of the Premier League season to draw the Blues level with Sunderland on Saturday before laying on the assist for Nikica Jelavic’s winning strike.
Fellaini, who signed a new five-year contract with Everton just under 12 months ago, has been one of the most outstanding players so far this season with his performances certain to have been noticed by some of Europe’s biggest clubs.
Chelsea and Real Madrid are thought to be amongst his admirers but Moyes says he has no problem with clubs coming to watch their talisman.
The Everton boss says not only is there a hefty price tag on the former Standard Liege player’s head but that Fellaini wants nothing more than to help take the Blues into the Champions League.
“Everybody knows where he is and if they want to come and watch him that’s up to them,” said the Everton manager.
“It would be a big price on his head but we’ve got no problem in people coming and watching him.
“I’m not in the mood now to keep the fight going all the time because we’ve had to do it with a lot of players.
“But Felli knows what I think and I know what he thinks and I think more than anything he’d love to take Everton into the Champions League and that’s what we’ll try and achieve.
“I think we’ve got to the stage at Everton where I say ‘look, we’ve lost some really good players but I don’t think it’s stopped us from progressing the team’.
“In fact, people might say Everton have lost good players but they’ve actually gone and we’ve improved.
“We sold (Joleon) Lescott, we sold (Mikel) Arteta and we’ve all felt really down when we’ve lost those players but we’ve had to pick ourselves up and go and find other ones.
“The club will always be bigger than any player, any manager, and the players we’ve brought in are showing that.”
