The Israel international will see his current contract at Stamford Bridge expire at the end of the season.

Benayoun has been drafted back into the Blues fold following Rafa Benitez's arrival as interim boss, but is unlikely to be offered fresh terms.

That means he will be on the move over the summer, with the former West Ham United and Liverpool playmaker already generating interest.

Clubs in Russia are believed to be leading the chase for his signature at present, but Benayoun's representative claims the 32-year-old will mull over all offers before making a decision on his future.

Ronen Katsav told Izvestia: "Benayoun will be a free agent in the summer and there is bound to be an interest in such a good player.

"Yossi is focused on his job at Chelsea to adequately complete the current season.

"Before his contract ends, we will consider all offers."
