Following the arrival of Charlie Adam from Blackpool, a lot has been said about the future of Portuguese international Raul Meireles at Liverpool. Kenny Dalglish now has a whole host of central midfielders to pick from and that may signal the departure of Raul.

The Mirror reports today that Raul may be headed to Italy this summer as Juventus and Inter Milan are interested in acquiring his services for £12million.

It would be a shame if Raul is sold this summer as he started to show us, under Kenny Dalglish, how good a player he is. After Roy Hodgson signed him, he did not have the best of starts at Liverpool as Hodgson had no idea where to play him. But since Kenny started to deploy him in the middle of the park he started scoring goals for fun.

If Raul is sold this summer it would not surprise me at all as he is probably the easiest central midfielder on our books to sell. Many clubs would be willing to have him in their team and we would have to sell him in order to raise some transfer funds. Liverpool have struggled to sell Aquilani, Cole and Poulsen so rather sell Meireles and raise some cash.

    ” started scoring goals for fun.” – for 5 games, and then returned to the same story as he was before. Running around like a headless chicken.

    I think u fans became deluded about this guy…and also his fitness is an absolute horror.

    Agreed about his fitness, he seems to suffer a lot from even the smallest knock

    But he is a class act, but there’s just no room for him anymore

    He also wants to double his contract, part of a gentleman’s agreement when he signed on “low” wages, our current strategy cannot ratify such a contract offer for a 28 year old

    “Struggled to sell” – it’s only 10th July, international transfer window only opened on July 1st, Aquilani will be sold as will Poulsen. Or let go on a free……. Time to cut our losses on some of them

    ‘Arry will nab Joe Cole from us for a knock down fee

    He was good during early half season last year.. But ya the factor is his age n his game.. He is quite old n not an impressive creator.. We dont need him for his international experience only as We have much more experienced players.. We need youngs.. Its bst idea to sell him n the price is also deserved one.

    Joe Cole has showed no class since he arrived at LFC. He SHOULD BE the one shown the door instead of Raul.
