Chelsea’s £30m swoop for free-scoring midfielder in doubt

Alex TeixeiraChelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern have started moping in the corner after more disappointment, as their season took a turn from bad to worse with awful news on the transfer front.

The Daily Star states Chelsea’s move for Alex Teixeira is in major doubt as Shakhtar Donetsk are determined not to cash-in on the £30m-rated Brazilian this month.

Chelsea are desperate to bolster their attacking line with the addition of Teixeira, who is enjoying a phenomenal season having netted 22 goals in 15 league games, as well as a further three in the Champions League- including a brace against Real Madrid.

Whilst Chelsea eye a lucrative swoop this month, a source close to the negotiations stated a deal is unlikely to take place:

“I know Shakhtar well and they will not let this happen in this window.”

With just 12 days remaining in the transfer window, Chelsea boss Guus Hiddink faces a daunting task as he looks to improve on his current options and fight back from an atrocious campaign so far.

Our landlord believes Chelsea have left it too late for big deals and is concerned that they don’t have the necessary players to fend off the threat of relegation.

Chelsea fans, how many signings do you need this month? Let us know in the comments below!
