Arsenal are set to challenge Chelsea in their bid to buy Everton’s Marouane Fellaini, who is reported to be available for a fee of around £22Million.

It has emerged this week that Marouane has a clause in his contract that states if a team playing Champions League football bids £22Million or more than Everton must accept the bid. Chelsea having been eliminated from this season’s competition may have to get the lawyers involved.

Arsene Wenger is reported to be keen on the midfielder, with Arsenal set to make the 25 year-old their record signing. The Gunners are keen to bolster their team having failed to challenge for the Premier League in recent years.

Chelsea have emerged as favourites to sign Newcastle United’s Demba Ba, who is available for a bargain fee of £7.5million.

Chelsea are widely expected to sign two strikers in January, with Daniel Sturridge leaving the Blues to join Liverpool.

Ba scored twice against potential suitors Arsenal yesterday in Newcastle’s 7-3 loss, with Demba levelling the score just before half-time to make it 1-1 with a deflected free-kick, then netting Newcastle’s third to equalise in the 69th minute before the Gunners took control with 4 more goals.

Theo Walcott has put a host of clubs on alert after failing to agree an extension of his contract, which is due to run out next summer.

The Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, is to plead with the board not to sell the youngster in January, in the hope that Theo will decide to sign an extension before the summer.

The board is rumoured to have other ideas on the subject, with the club not willing to risk losing the 23 year-old on a free. They will be hoping to recoup some of the £9million paid to Southampton for his signature.

Men behind the scenes at Chelsea are keeping a keen eye on the Theo Walcott contract saga, with a possible January bid lined up, to take the Arsenal speedster away from the Emirates.

The Arsenal forward has been out of favour with Arsene Wenger this season, starting only his second Premier League game yesterday, setting up all three Arsenal goals, and certainly impressing me with his deft passing and crossing, taking Arsenal´s corner kicks, erasing the ´cant cross a ball´ tag which had stuck with him for some while.

The Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti has warned Arsenal that Aston Villa could be a danger to their place in the top three in the Premiership, and thinks that the Midlands side has got such a great record against the top clubs this season that they could even challenge for the title!

“Aston Villa are a very dangerous team,” said Ancelotti. “They won against Chelsea and Manchester United. I think Martin O’Neill is doing a fantastic job with this team. Maybe we have to pay attention to them because nobody spoke about Aston Villa in the top four but now we have to pay attention to this team. I think Arsenal have to pay attention to them.”
