Arsenal and Everton have both dismissed the reports that claimed the London club had made a £22million bid for midfielder Marouane Fellaini.

Reports suggested that Arsenal had made a formal bid of around £22million for the Belgium midfielder, but a BBC reporter tweeted saying that both camps have dismissed those talks.

Fellaini has been superb for Everton this season and has been highly linked with a move away from Goodison Park with both Chelsea and Arsenal interested in signing the midfield-man, but nothing concrete has come about since the end of the season.

Everton would have had to accept the £22m bid from Arsenal if it was true as that is the release clause in Fellaini's contract if a top-four club made the bid.

If a team outside of the top-four wanted Fellaini, they would have to pay £24m for his services.

David Ornstein, who is a BBC journalist, tweeted saying that both Everton and Arsenal have rejected the claims that stated Arsenal had met the release clause in the Belgium's contract.

The reporter also tweeted more transfer news for Arsenal fans.

He revealed that the Gunners are not formally interested in Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney and Queens Park Rangers goalkeeper Julio Cesar.

Ornstein also tweeted that Stevan Jovetic is still wanted by Arsenal, but his name is not on the top of the list for manager Arsene Wenger.

It also came out that apparently the Arsenal boss has held advanced talks with Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain over a possible move to the Emirates in the summer.
