Chelsea will make their first serious forays into the transfer market this week with a £45million swoop for Liverpool’s Raul Meireles and Tottenham’s Luka Modric.

The Blues are in search of more midfield creativity to help unlock the door for £50million striker Fernando Torres.

Manager Andre Villas-Boas will target the duo to ensure Sunday’s goalless draw against Stoke is a one-off, according to the Daily Mail.

Liverpool are willing to sell Meireles, 28, to help offset their £100m summer spending spree and anticipated selling the Portuguese abroad.

Only Juventus have shown any interest so far but have baulked at £15million asking price.

The Reds want to cash in on the PFA Fans Player of the Year in order to generate funds to buy Stoke captain Ryan Shawcross.

Villas-Boas knows him well from their time at Porto and sees Meireles as an ideal foil for main target Spurs’ Modric.

The Croatia international will miss Thursday’s Europa League tie against Hearts with injury but Chelsea will still offer £30million plus Yossi Benayoun.

The Israeli does not see much of a future for himself at Stamford Bridge, and if Meireles and Modric arrive, he will be further down the pecking order.
