FC LIVERPOOL have announced the purchase of Portugal World Cup midfielder RAUL MEIRELES from FC Porto of Portugal for a transfer fee reported to be 14.0 million Euros.

The 27-year-old Meireles, who is capable of playing in a defensive midfield role, has insisted, however, that he should not be thought of merely as a replacement for departed Argentina World Cup midfielder JAVIER MASCHERANO, whom the Reds just recently sold to Spanish giant FC Barcelona.

Meireles, who was a member of four Portuguese league championship squads with FC Porto, has earned 38 caps and scored six goals thus far for the national team of Portugal.
