    Transfer Rumours: Liverpool in talks to sign Brazilian player

    Reports have emerged that Liverpool have expressed an interest in Brazilian midfielder Alex Teixeira.

    Teixeira who currently plays for Ukranian team FC Shakhtar Donetsk has been linked with a move to Chelsea earlier this month, but Liverpool have reportedly tabled a £24.5 million bid despite that there are reports that the player is injured with a pulled hamstring. 

    Teixeira would add a lot of creativity and versatility to the Liverpool squad as he can play as an attacking midfielder, defensive midfielder or as a centre forward. 

    He joined Shakhtar in 2010 from Brazilian side Vasco da Gama where he began his career. 

    The 26 year old who has never been capped for Brazil although he has played for them at youth level, can use both feet comfortably, he is strong and very pacy which could make him fit in perfectly into Jurgen Klopps style of football. 

    He is one of footballs exciting stars, and he has already scored 22 goals in the Ukrainian league this season, and four in the Champions league. 

    Liverpool's Chief Executive Officer Iain Ayre has reportedly flown to Florida to where Shakhtar are based for winter training in an attempt to negotiate with the player. 

    Shakhtar have a reputation for producing exciting and very talented players in their team in the past such as Chelsea's Willian, Bayern Munich's Douglas Costa, and Borussia Dortmund's Henrikh Mkhitaryan, and are also known for having a lot of Brazilians play for them. 

    Shakhtar manager Mircea Lucescu has said Teixeira is a great leader and he will support any move he makes. "He is the technical leader of my team". 

    "If there is an offer that will satisfy both the player and the club, I will fully support his move". 

    His current club worth him over £30 million, but Liverpool seem hopefully to negotiate that value estimation down. 

    If he joins Liverpool he would have fellow Brazilians Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino and Lucas Leiva to help him settle in, and it could well prove to be a significant move in the transfer market for Liverpool.
