Liverpool keen to reignite interest in Alex Teixeira

Liverpool have been one of the standout performers in the Premier League this season, which has put them in a promising position to challenge for the Premier League title. 

The Reds currently find themselves in a fierce battle with Manchester City, with one minor slip-up possibly costing them their chance of securing an elusive piece of silverware under Jurgen Klopp.

However, it appears as if the Merseyside club are looking to strengthen in January, as according to the Daily Star (via Football Facts), Liverpool are keen on reigniting their interest in Alex Teixeira.

Liverpool are supposedly keen on reigniting their interest in Alex Teixeira ahead of a potential move in January.

Interestingly, the Reds previously came close to securing the services of the Brazilian with Liverpool having a bid rejected by his former club Shakhtar Donetsk, but instead he decided to sign for Chinese outfit Jiangsu Suning.

But, it’s thought that the attacker is now hoping to move back to Europe after a three year stint in the Chinese Super League and a move to Anfield could be on his radar.

THE VERDICT:

Second time lucky for the Reds.

The 28-year-old currently has 15 goals to his name in 31 appearances over in China, so he could definitely have a positive impact on proceedings at Anfield.

Liverpool already have the likes of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Xherdan Shaqiri in wide areas, but Teixeira also has the ability to play in a more central role, which could help fill the Philippe Coutinho void.
