Liverpool and Chelsea target Alex Texeira claims it would be “an honour” to play for Reds.
The Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder revealed to Anfield HQ:
“The team received one official offer from Liverpool. It was rejected. I don’t know why.
“It was a great offer. It is frustrating. But the president and manager decided against it. So now I’m just waiting, trying to be patient.
“Yes, it is a huge club. So many great players have passed through there. It would be an honour to defend the Liverpool shirt.”
Teixeira believes his agent will do “everything possible” to help him get a move to Merseyside.
As we reported last week Liverpool chief executive, Ian Ayre, has flown to Florida, where Shakhtar are currently training in pre-season, to try and reach an agreement with the Ukrainian club.
It is believed that Reds’ offer to Shakhtar was around £25m.
