Shelvey is producing some of the best form of his career this season.
When asked specifically about Shelvey's current form, Benitez sent out a message to England coach Gareth Southgate and commented: “If they need to talk to me I can do it. I will give my opinion.
“I think they know Jonjo really well but he is now more mature and he is improving so if they need my opinion I will give it. It has to be positive.
“He (Shelvey) is doing well and hopefully he can do well until the end. Maybe he will be there."
