World Cup star Raul Meireles is set to sign from Portuguese side Porto to English Premier League side Liverpool. Meireles, who was one of the bright spots in Portugal’s largely disappointing campaign, has been linked with a host of top European clubs, such as Manchester United, Real Madrid, and Chelsea. He has yet to play for Porto this season, both in Europe and in the Liga Zon Sagres, which means that he is not cup tied, so if he happened to move to Liverpool, he could be a part of their Europa League campaign. Liverpool are struggling in the EPL currently, and with the probable departure of Javier Mascherano to Barcelona, Roy Hodgson sees Meireles as the ideal replacement. I think that this move could be a good one for Meireles. I am always excited to see Portuguese players of his caliber move abroad, especially to the English Premier League. I do think that staying at Porto would be more beneficial for him, though.
