Reds launched £31million offer, according to reports
Liverpool have had yet another bid turned down by Shakhtar Donetsk for Alex Teixeira, according to reports.
However, both were declined as Shakhtar remain hopeful of getting closer to £40m for their star-man, but a third offer has been made by the Premier League side and once again it’s fallen short of the Ukrainian club’s asking-price.
According to reports, Jurgen Klopp and co. have offered £31m for Teixeira, but it was a bid that was once again declined.
The latest rejection will further frustrate Teixeira, who has recently been very open about his future and has admitted that he wishes Shakhtar would just accept an offer for him.
Ian Ayre has already held talks with the Ukrainian club and with the striker himself, during his time out in Florida, but as it stands, the Reds haven’t managed to make a breakthrough.
Due to Liverpool‘s interest, it appears that Chelsea have cooled their pursuit as they now turn their attentions to Corinthians striker Alexandre Pato, who they could announce as soon as today.
