Chelsea target Alex Texeira is being persuaded by two Blues stars for his move to Stamford Bridge.
The Shaktar Donetsk midfielder is close friend with both Willian and Oscar, and the two Brazilian midfielders are working to convince him to move to London according to the Telegraph.
Texeira already expressed the desire to become a Blues player a couple of months ago, when he claimed:
I’m glad to have received the proposal of Chelsea as they are a big club in Europe, but my manager will sort that.
“It’s my dream, I have spoken to many people who have the desire to play in the Premier League, because I think it’s the best World Championship, most competitive.
“For January, I believe it is very difficult because it is in the middle of the championship. Shakhtar has said they will not release me in January, only at the end of the season. But I’m with a clear head.”
Willian and Oscar are trying, anyway, to persuade him to transfer to London during this transfer window, as Chelsea need fresh energy and more talent to try to climb up the table and reach the four spot to qualify for Champions League.
He stated also that he would have loved to work with José Mourinho:
“I hope he does not leave Chelsea now. I want to work with him and have great success at his side.”
His dream to work with the Portuguese coach has now gone, since Mourinho was sacked before Christmas.
But probably this will not be enough to stop him to wear a Chelsea shirt soon.
