Liverpool ready to raise offer to land exceptional attacking star

Alex TeixeiraLiverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern were in the bar early this afternoon to watch their side’s latest Premier League clash with Norwich City and they passed time at the interval by discussing the up to date reports concerning a reported target.

The Guardian states Liverpool are ready to raise their offer for Shakhtar Donetsk’s Alex Teixeira, having seen a £24.6m bid rejected earlier this week.

Liverpool are in desperate need of attacking additions to get their season back on track, and raise their outside chances of landing a spot in the top four, and Teixeira has been identified as the ideal recruit; though Liverpool face intense competition from Chelsea for his signature.

Shakhtar Donetsk want €50m for the Brazilian forward and believe that they will get that figure at the end of the season, if they can fend off the interest in the 26-year-old this month.

With 22 goals in 15 games in the Ukrainian league this season, it’s clear Teixeira is ready to step-up to a higher level and Liverpool remain in negotiations for his signature.

Liverpool fans, do you need more than Teixeira this month? Let us know in the comments below!
