Premier League side West Ham United have been offered Fenerbache midfielder Raul Meireles in a cut-price deal, which could see the former-Chelsea and Liverpool man return to England.
The Portuguese international was one of Sam Allardyce’s main targets back in January, but a formal deal couldn’t be agreed and The Hammers missed out on the holding-midfielder, but they look set to sign him this Summer as the Turkish side prepare to sell him off on the cheap.
The 31-year-old is currently one of the highest earners at Fenerbache and the club are desperate to cut their wage-bill, and the former-Premier League man is one of the players they are ready to lose.
It’s believed they will accept an offer around as little as £3million for the veteran, despite them paying £8m for him back in 2012.
If Meireles does stay in Turkey until the end of his contract, which is 2015, it will see him pocket a whopping £5m.
