Benayoun and Meireles in swap deal

The Israeli midfielder is thought to be surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge

Yossi Benayoun is being offered as part of a player-plus-cash deal that could see Raul Meireles move to Chelsea.

The Israeli midfielder is thought to be surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge following the arrival of Juan Mata from Valencia and is being linked with moves to both Arsenal and a return to Liverpool. The Israeli wrote on Twitter: “negotiating with several teams… news soon.”

Reports in some of the morning papers are suggesting that Chelsea have offered Benayoun to Liverpool as part of a player-plus-cash deal that would see Meireles reunited with Andre Villas-Boas.

The current Chelsea manager worked with Meireles at Porto and is keen to link up with Portuguese midfielder again.

The move suggests that Chelsea have now given up on trying to sign Tottenham midfielder Luka Modric. Sky Bet now offer betting odds of 6/4 that Modric will leave Tottenham in this transfer window and odds of 1/2 that he will stay.
