Shakhtar CEO confirms why Liverpool won’t be signing Alex Teixeira this month

Well that's that then.

This one looks dead in the water.

Alex Teixeira has done his best to self-actualise a move to Liverpool, mainly through blatantly stating he wants to go to Anfield, but it looks like it won’t be happening any time soon.


Shakhtar CEO Sergei Palkin is reported to have told a website in Brazil that the deal is almost certainly dead as Liverpool have no intention of stumping up the necessary funds for the player.

It seems fairly clear why Palkin would make comments like this as speculation grows about the striker’s future.

But the true cost of not getting out the chequebook  will only be clear to Jurgen Klopp at the end of the season.
