Avram Grant wants to appoint fellow Israeli Colonel Avi Moyal as Chelsea's new fitness coach.

The Daily Mail says Grant wants Moyal, who was fitness coach for the Israeli national team during Grant's spell in charge of his country, to replace Jose Mourinho's sidekick Rui Faria.

Moyal is currently Head of the Israel Defence Forces Combat Fitness Training Department, but Grant believes he can persuade the taskmaster to join Chelsea.

According to sources in Israel, Moyal has taken physical training 'into the 21st century'.
