The Belgian is wanted by a host of clubs including Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain, but could cost as much as £30 million.

Moyes said: "Everyone knows where Felli is, they know where to come and watch him and they also that it will be a big price if they are interested."

Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo fancies Fellaini as a long-term replacement for Frank Lampard, who could be bound for the Chinese Super League.

Guizhou Rehne are closing on a deal that could net the England man £250,000 a week, according to The Sun.

Still in China, Shanghai Shenhua's Nicolas Anelka could be West Ham-bound as Sam Allardyce looks to bolster his squad.

Allardyce worked at Bolton with Anelka, who is still only 33.
