A hefty 75 per cent of Goal readers agree that Marouane Fellaini is exactly the player that Arsenal need.

ANALYSIS: Ewan Roberts explores whether the Everton star would be the right signing for Arsenal
After Goal exclusively revealed that the Gunners have met the £22 million release clause in the Everton midfielder's contract, the Belgian seems likely to leave Goodison Park for the Emirates Stadium in what would be a club-record fee for the north Londoners.

Thousands of readers took part in our poll and only 25% felt that Fellaini would not suit Arsene Wenger's side.

The Toffees star's 11 goals in 2012-13 would seemingly well complement the calm and discipline of Mikel Arteta and the precocious creativity of Jack Wilshere in the centre of the Gunners' midfield.

Fellaini's could be the first of several arrivals at Arsenal this summer, with chief executive Ivan Gazidis declaring that the club have the financial firepower to sign players of Wayne Rooney’s calibre.
