Liverpool could still wrap up a deal to sign Shakhtar Donetsk forward Alex Teixeira before the close of Monday’s transfer deadline, according to the BBC.
The Reds, who have had their fair share of problems in front of goal this season, have already seen three separate bids knocked back for the Brazilian as Shakhtar remain hopeful of seeing his £53.2million buy-out clause met.
That valuation is believed to have seen the deal stall, though, with several reports claiming that the move is now dead in the water.
However, the BBC claim there is still hope that the move can be pushed through before the transfer window slams shut on Monday night as chief executive Ian Ayre is still working hard on making it happen.
But for them to stand any chance of completing his signature, Liverpool are going to have to increase their current £27m offer, but with Teixeira pushing for a move to Anfield, the two parties could come to an agreement sooner rather than later.
