TRANSFER IMMINENT: Liverpool agree terms with £37.6m South American hitman & Chelsea target

Posted by

According to reports, Liverpool are on the brink of confirming a deal to bring Shakhtar Donetsk frontman Alex Teixeira to Anfield.

Futbol Ukraine [via the Daily Star] have reported that Liverpool have agreed personal terms with the player, although the deal still rests on whether the Reds and the Ukrainian heavyweights can settle on a transfer fee.

Indeed, this sticking point threatens to undermine the deal, even if the player himself is clearly willing.

The Mirror reported that the Merseyside giants initially offered £24.6 million for the player, but that that offer was rejected out of hand by Shakhtar, who are keen to pocket £37.6 million for the player.

While Liverpool are understood to be prepared to stretch to £30 million, it remains to be seen which party will make the compromise.

According to the Star, Jurgen Klopp is desperate to bring the 25-year-old to Merseyside, and with Teixera having agreed terms, the player himself looks keen to make the switch to the Premier League.
