Turkish giants Fenerbahce have revealed that they have opened negotiations with Chelsea over Raul Meireles.
The 29-year-old arrived at Stamford Bridge just over 12 months ago when the Blues paid £12million to Liverpool to land his signature.
Meireles has three years left on his current deal, but he appears to be surplus to the requirements of coach Roberto Di Matteo.
Fener have confirmed to the Turkish stock market that they are in talks with Chelsea over the Portuguese international, with the transfer window in Turkey staying open until later this week.
"We have started discussions to transfer Chelsea Football Club player Raul Meireles to our club,"said the Fener statement.
