According to the media, Chelsea had a bid of £7m + Yossi Benayoun rejected as AVB looks to rebuild our midfield before the window closes. Now remember, the transfer window closes tomorrow at 11pm UK time so expect all sorts of stories and rumours to appear, but the fact that this story also appears in The Guardian, for me this has a substance enough to blog about it.

If rumours are to be believed, Chelsea were looking at Raul Meireles long before he made the move to Anfield. That obviously never happened but it seems now, Chelsea believe that can make their move after Liverpool have bolstered their midfield by signing Charlie Adam and Jordan Henderson.

Benayoun as part of the deal? I'm not so sure that Liverpool will want him back as I cannot see how he would improve their midfield at the moment but Benayoun IS on his way out of the club as he confirmed yesterday. Chelsea will need to offer the money alone for Raul Meireles and I wonder if £10m would be enough to get him.

I personally like Meireles. He scores goals, has an eye for a pass and gets stuck in. He is the right age (28) and would be in my eyes a better addition to our midfield than Yossi Benayoun.

The article states that Chelsea are still talking to Liverpool about this deal and are trying to work something out. It's seems Liverpool are willing to cash in on the player after spending what they have, it seems Chelsea are looking at the midfield with the signings of Mata and Romeu already made, could Raul Meireles be a Chelsea player by the time the window closes?

What do you people think. Is this a good move?
