Reports claim that Liverpool have agreed personal terms with Alex Teixeira, with the player making it known to Shakhtar Donetsk that he wants to move to the Merseyside giants.
It has long been assumed that Teixeira was on his way to Chelsea, but Liverpool have jumped ahead of the queue to sign the Brazilian after making a £24.5m bid last week.
Now the club must agree a fee with Shakhtar, who value Teixeira closer to £38m.
Teixeira scored an incredible 26 goals in 25 games for Shakhtar last season, becoming one of the hottest properties in European football. Watch him in action below.
