Chelsea bid for Liverpool midfielder

Chelsea were planning to make an improved offer for Raul Meireles on Monday night after Liverpool rejected their opening bid of £8 million plus Yossi Benayoun.

Meireles can leave Liverpool, and has been available for sale at £11 million, but it is understood that Liverpool would rather he went overseas than join another Premier League club, particularly Chelsea.

Raul Meireles Indeed it is thought that Chelsea’s renewed interest in Meireles — who is greatly admired by manager André Villas-Boas — has already led to an increase in the fee being demanded by Liverpool. However, Chelsea are desperate to conclude the deal and will make a new cash bid.

Sources have indicated Liverpool do not want to re-sign Benayoun, who would like to return to the club he left last summer for £5 million. The Israeli is almost certain to leave Chelsea and it remains more likely he will join French champions Lille. There has been tentative contact from Arsenal — who have also inquired about Benayoun’s Chelsea team-mate Alex — but no bid has been made.

Meireles is unsure of his future at Liverpool and whether he fits into the plans of manager Kenny Dalglish, who has bought several midfielders this summer. There has been interest in him from Serie A Liverpool would rather he did not stay in England.

Villas-Boas only worked briefly with Meireles at Porto but there is a mutual admiration and the Chelsea manager would welcome him at his club especially if he failed to land Modric. It is believed that Villas-Boas has decided against bidding for another midfielder, Porto’s Joao Moutinho who he had considered as an alternative to Modric.

Liverpool is understood to be in the market for a backup striker, if Chelsea are ready to do business, Daniel Sturridge should be the one who will be in the player plus cash makeweight deal.

Let’s us know what are your thoughts on this deal? Are Liverpool FC going to part with Meireles this summer? Leave your comments below.

Liverpool are ready to make Chelsea a swap deal

There are growing speculation that Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas is keen on reuniting with former FC Porto man Raul Meireles and Kenny Dalglish maybe tempted to consider an offer for the Portuguese international, just as long as Liverpool get striker Daniel Sturridge in return.

Raul Meireles The heavily tattooed Portuguese midfielder has seemingly fallen out of favour with Dalglish – he only came on a substitute during last Saturday's 1-1 draw with Sunderland at Anfield – and, given the club's excessive collection of central players, is now available for transfer.

Chelsea are frustrated over their attempts to sign Luka Modric from Tottenham Hotspur and with the manager, Andre Villas-Boas, acutely aware of Meireles's talents from their time together at Porto a move for the 28-year-old does seem plausible. Liverpool will, though, want close to £12million for the player. There is also growing speculation that Israeli international Yossi Benayoun could be used as a makeweight in the pursuit of Luka Modric.

Dalglish is keen to bolster his defensive option with the sales of Meireles, with Bolton’s Gary Cahill and Birmingham’s Scott Dann heavily linked to Anfield.

Chelsea are looking to add creativity to a midfield that has a great deal of brawn in the shape of John Obi Mikel, Ramires and Michael Essien but not so much in the way of forward momentum aside from ageing Frank Lampard and youngster Josh McEachran.

Although, Liverpool are keen to bolster its defensive options before the transfer window closes. Dalglish would also like to purchase a forward to cover for January signing of Luis Suarez and Andy Carroll. A possible swap deal or cash plus Meireles for Chelsea striker Daniel Sturridge maybe on the card.

Sturridge will not be keen to spend the season on the Blues bench having experienced a taste of regular Premier League football whilst on loan at the Reebok Stadium last term and the 21 year old may be keen on any move that brings him nearer to first team football.

If the rumour are to be true on Bolton interest in Frenchman David N’Gog and he could be offloaded to the Reebok Stadium.

Liverpool midfielder could be leaving Anfield soon

I can felt the players’ frustration when they are not selected for the first eleven but when you’re playing for Liverpool FC, that’s mean you must understand it will be difficult if the team are playing well at the moment.

Yossi Benayoun has vented his frustration by indicating he’ll walk out of Anfield if he still warming the bench in the coming months.


"Even if it’s Liverpool, if I don’t get to play in the next few months I will not want to be here.

“I enjoy my time in England but maybe it is time to learn a new language - maybe Italian, French or Russian.

“When I came here it wasn’t so I could tell everyone ‘Hey, I play for Liverpool’.

“My purpose was to prove myself and, in the first year, I think I did with 11 goals and 10 assists.

“I understand that I am at one of the biggest clubs in the world and that this year there are better players.

“After our win over Manchester United I lost my place. Everyone wants to play and it is no fun sitting on the bench or playing just a few minutes.

“I’m part of the rotation but I hope in the next few months it will change.” – Benayoun, Setanta Sports

I don’t know what other people think of this but for me, I’ll tells Rafa to sell him or put him in the Gareth Barry’s deal this January. The bad news are Aston Villa prepared to hold on to Barry until his contract expire.

Why hold on to a player that doesn’t have the mentality for team success?

Till then.

City to outbid Hammers for Liverpool midfielder

Contrary to my opinion about bringing Gareth Barry to Anfield, Rafa Benitez still interested in the Villans' midfielder. But to realised this move, the gaffer need to sell before he can buy.

Liverpool just completed the move for Robbie Keane 24 hour ago, which saw three players were sold to capture the high profile Irishman for a club's record fee £20.3million, the second most expensive signing. Rafa will continue to reshape the Liverpool squad and the latest news coming from the Daily Mail suggests Yossi Benayoun is to be offload to the highest bidder.

Manchester City have made a £6million bid for the Israel midfielder, all but ending West Ham's hopes of re-signing Benayoun. The profit of £1million proved to be to good to reject as money are very hard to come by at Anfield this summer. The Hammers are unlikely to match City's bid, who sold Benayoun to the Reds at £5million, a year ago.

With Benayoun set to join Voronin, Pennant, Itandje and Arbeloa at the exit door. Liverpool still fall short of two pacy and creative out-and-out wingers. I strongly suggest that Rafa should move for winger rather than signing another midfielder.

Don't get me wrong, I've nothing against Barry but it wasn't just my opposition for his acquisition. The poll setup here received 47 'NO' from 108 voters, that we shouldn't sign him while Alonso is much better player than Barry.
