Manager David Moyes recently stated that it would take a significant fee for the club to even consider selling its talisman, with the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United reportedly interested. Fellaini remains focused on the task in hand, claiming that the club can match his ambitions in the short term as Everton enjoys its best start to a Premier League season since 2004-05, when the Toffees finished fourth.
"There is interest in me, but Everton are an ambitious club as well," Fellaini told ESPN. "I don't think they'll let their best players go just like that. I want to play for one of the biggest clubs one day. But I am patient."
Fellaini currently leads the goalscoring charts for the club this season with six goals in his first 10 league games of the campaign, exactly double his tally last season after flourishing in a more advanced forward role behind striker Nikica Jelavic.
