How about this for a beardy blast from the past?
Former Liverpool and Chelsea midfielder Raul Meireles is hoping to return to the Premier League.
The 34-year-old is currently a free agent having left Fenerbahce in the summer.
Serie A’s Cagliari have expressed an interest in recruiting the Portuguese international but his agent is desperately trying to secure him a return to English shores.
The Mirror are reporting that Leicester, Watford, West Brom and Swansea are open to the possibility of negotiations.
Meireles spent a season and a bit at both Anfield and Stamford Bridge.
He got a League Cup medal with Liverpool and played a significant part in Chelsea’s Champions League triumph in 2012.
Know for his distinctive look (think Shoreditch hipster caricature), Meireles earned 73 caps for Portugal between 2006 – 2014.
Dust off the tattoo gun and beard combs, lads, he’s on his way back to the Prem.
