With only a few days left before the transfer window closes on Wednesday, Liverpool are reportedly set for a shock transfer signing with Yossi Benayoun set to return to Liverpool from Chelsea.
Benayoun is virtually set on leaving Chelsea as he is going to struggle to make it into their starting lineup and it is thought that Liverpool or Lille could be his destinations. Yesterday Benayoun tweeted: “negotiating with several team (sic) … news soon.”
Chelsea are thought to want Liverpool’s Raul Meireles and if that deal were to go through then that could mean Benayoun returns to Anfield as part of the deal. There has been a lot of speculation around Raul’s future at Liverpool this summer but for now he is still a Liverpool player and I would rather us sell him (if we are going to sell him) to a team outside the Premier League. Meireles still has a lot to offer the team as we saw against Arsenal when he came on off the bench and did very well.
