Chelsea continue intense pursuits of Shakhtar Donetsk attacking midfielder turned striking sensation, Alex Teixeira and reports say the Blues are really interested in landing the Brazilian player at the Stamford Bridge come January by all means necessary. Reports going viral on twitter already claim the deal is done and dusted and it is only a matter of time before it is officially announced.
Their lack of quality in finishing in front of goal continued at weekend when they could only get a goal against the Norwich City side to emerge winners, and the coach wants the prolific goal scorer of a player in order to add needed quality to his attack department.
The Ukrainian club are said to be more-than-willing to cash-in on their star forward, and would let him go by January for 30 million Pounds. Chelsea are also willing to pay the amount, while the player has confirmed his interest in the move few weeks ago.
Teixeira has 20 goals already this season, and boasts of a high conversion rate. He admitted that Chelsea are in talks with his club over a possible move, and has expressed his excitement for the Blue’s interest in his services, hoping that a January-move works out well.
The Brazil international tops the goal scorers chart all across Europe this season, beating Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski who is on 19 goals. Reports say Chelsea are planning to cut short the loan term of AS Roma striker, Falcao, and his exit will allow for the 25 year-old to come in as a replacement. Falcao, alongside Diego Costa and Loic Remy have been poor this season as they all have 6 goals across all competitions this season; a far cry compared to Teixeira’s 20. His arrival is sure to shake up things upfront.
