The speculation surrounding players leaving Liverpool this summer is mounting as we get closer to the closing of the summer transfer window. Surprisingly, Chelsea have not been too active in the transfer window compared to their previous summers but reports are now suggesting that their new boss, Andre Villas-Boas, wants Liverpool’s Portuguese midfielder Raul Meireles.

It is no surprise that Chelsea may be interested in our midfielder as Villas-Boas worked with Meireles at Porto when he was still at the club. Chelsea have been after Spurs’ Luka Modric and it does not look like Chelsea will get the Croatian thus the speculation linking them to Raul.

Now there had been suggestions at the start of the summer that Liverpool may be willing to sell Meireles if they get in an offer for £12million. With the arrivals of Henderson and Adam this summer at Liverpool it was suggested that there may not be room for Meireles in the side anymore. We saw a hint of that this past weekend when Meireles started from the bench for Liverpool against Sunderland.

Do you think it would be a good idea for Liverpool to sell Meireles to Chelsea?
