Sharktar Donetsk has placed the value of their most wanted striker Alex Teixiera for a fee around £30m. The performing striker is reportedly to be on Chelsea hotlist as a likely January transfer target.
The Brazilian has lit up the Ukrainian league with 19 goals this season and could look to join his Brazilian brothers at Chelsea. The forward confirmed Chelsea interest in him when he was quoted as saying:
“ 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”.
Chelsea have been struggling this season for goals upfront and would be willing to do business in the transfer window in January to help bring back goals to the club.
Diego Costa has been poor in front of goal this season as he has managed just 2 goals in the league this season compared to his blistering form of last season. His deputies –Radamel Falcao and Loic Remy have both failed to impress when called up for action.
With reports suggesting that the loan deal for Falcao could be cut short, Teixiera could be the right man to fill in for the Colombian international who has been a flop for the Chelsea side.
