Shakhtar Donetsk have informed Chelsea that if they plan to bid for Alex Teixeira during the winter transfer window, they will have to pay a minimum of £30million, according to the reports.
The Brazilian attacking midfielder is considered to be one of the Blues’ main targets for the January transfer window as Radamel Falcao and Diego Costa may soon leave Stamford Bridge.
Teixeira currently playing at Shakhtar Donetsk has scored 21 goals in 22 matches this season with incredible result of 19 goals in just 13 league games.
What’s interesting, the player himself confirmed some time ago that he would be interested in transfer to Chelsea. As he said:
“I have an offer, it was a pleasure to know that Chelsea want to sign me. It would be great if the transfer happens in January.”
However has just over two years on his contract and without any doubt the Ukrainians won’t sell him on the cheap.
