West Ham Target Yossi Benayoun Hints At Chelsea Exit

Israeli says “a few things are going on” regarding his future.

Chelsea playmaker Yossi Benayoun has hinted that he could be set to leave Stamford Bridge this summer, after confirming that “a few things are going on”.

The former Liverpool midfielder has been shunted down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge by the arrivals of Eden Hazard and Marko Marin in west London, and Chelsea’s imminent deal for Brazilian Oscar is likely to further marginalise Benayoun.

The midfielder spent last season on loan at Arsenal but the Gunners are not interested in pursuing a permanent deal.

With West Ham reportedly interested in re-signing the 32-year-old, Benayoun took to twitter to update supporters on his future.

Benayoun played for West Ham between 2005 and 2007, making over 80 appearances and scoring 8 times in the Premier League.

He left in controversial circumstances after reportedly agreeing a new deal at Upton Park before dramatically signing for Liverpool but Hammers boss Sam Allardyce is thought to be interested in giving Benayoun a fresh start.

Ajax are also said to be keen on the Israel international, who has made just 12 appearances for Chelsea in two seasons.
