Yossi Benayoun revealed his desire to join Chelsea on Monday and said that he is confident of moving to the new English champion from Liverpool.

The 30-year-old midfielder fell out with Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez earlier this year, and with the Spaniard now expected to remain at Merseyside for at least one more season, Benayoun seems adamant to move on, especially with Chelsea and its manager Carlo Ancelotti interested in his services.

“Ancelotti wants me for next season and now everything depends on Liverpool,” Benayoun was quoted as saying in the Daily Mail. “Chelsea will have to pay some £6 million but I believe that in the end I’ll be moving there.”

Meanwhile, Betar Jerusalem midfielder Idan Vered is hopeful of joining Benayoun in England. The 21-year-old, who is set to receive a Romanian passport, has been tracked by Premier League club West Ham in recent months and is waiting for an official offer from the London outfit.
