Former Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal midfielder Yossi Benayoun could be set for a move to the MLS.

33-year-old Benayoun, whose seven-year spell in the Premier League also included two separate spells with West Ham, is currently without a club following the expiration of his Stamford Bridge contract this summer. 

West Brom were reportedly interested in extending the Israeli international's spell in England, but it now appears that Benayoun has his sights set on a switch to Major League Soccer with New York Red Bulls reportedly monitoring the situation.

"I've had approaches from teams in Europe and the United States," Benayoun told the official FIFA website. "The MLS could be an interesting experience.

"I have enough energy to left to carry on playing at the top level and help the national team to rise to the next challenge." 

Benayoun, who began his career with Israeli outfit Hapoel Be'er Sheva before spells with Maccabi Haifa and La Liga club Racing Santander, has notched 24 goals in 93 games for Israel in an international career that began in a 2-0 friendly loss against Portugal in November 1998.
