According to the media, it seems doubtful that Liverpool will be making a third offer for Shakhtar Donetsk striker Alex Teixeira.
The Reds’ chief executive Ian Ayre visited Shakhtar’s winter training camp in Florida in order to open talks about the striker with the cub previously. However, the club did not seem willing to come to terms with an agreement.
They initially said that the value of the player was increased to a minimum of £35m, later claiming that he was not for sale in the transfer window.
Liverpool had a £24m offer rejected for the player when talks were opened, according to Shakhtar Donetsk chief executive Sergei Palkin.
Later the talks were halted, and now a deal between the two clubs is unlikely to take place.
Shakhtar Donetsk revealed that they felt they let go of Douglous Costa too cheaply to Bayern Munich in the summer for £24m, and thus will not be selling Teixeira under the same circumstances.
Though, Teixeira himself has stated he is willing to join the Reds, but unless his club agrees a negotiation cannot take place.
