Thursday morning delivered hugely unexpected news, in Liverpool’s £25 million bid for Shakhtar Donetsk attacking midfielder Alex Teixeira.
Liverpool CEO Ian Ayre is said to have travelled to Florida to discuss a possible move for Teixeira this January.
Shakhtar are at a winter training camp in Miami, and Ayre will be confident that, despite the initial offer being below the Ukrainian club’s valuation for the attacking midfielder, a deal can be agreed.
Reports of Liverpool’s bid for Teixeira came out of the blue, provoking considerable reaction on Twitter.
Some focussed on the merits of signing another fleet-footed, Brazilian to add to Jurgen Klopp‘s attacking ranks.
