Teixeira: I want Liverpool, but bids rejected

Shakhtar Donetsk forward Alex Teixeira has publicly stated his desire to join Liverpool, but says that his club rejected a bid for the striker.

Teixeira was previously thought to interest Chelsea, but Liverpool have emerged as strong favourites to sign the Brazilian.

However, Shakhtar value Teixeira at close to €50m, while Liveroool’s latest offer falls far short of that figure.

“The team received one official offer from Liverpool. It was rejected, I don’t know why,” Alex Teixeira told Anfield HQ.

“There’s only been one offer — €32m — and Shakhtar rejected it. I know my agent is still attempting everything possible to help get me to Liverpool.

“It was a great offer. It’s frustrating. But the manager and club president decided against it, so now I’m just waiting, trying to be patient. [Liverpool] is a huge club and many great players have played there. It would be an honour to wear the Liverpool shirt.”
