Source: koptalk [dot] com

Liverpool have tabled a £24.5million bid for Shakhtar Donetsk striker Alex Teixeira.
Shakhtar Donetsk are currently in the United States participating in the Florida Cup and Liverpool chief executive Ian Ayre is out there trying to negotiate a deal.
Details of Ayre’s visit to the States was discussed on our members’ website earlier this week and we now have an explanation for the trip.
Liverpool have offered £24.5m for the Brazilian but early feedback suggests that his club is looking for around £38.5m.
Speaking in December, Shakhtar Donetsk manager Mircea Lucescu said: “Alex is now worth more than £29m.
“I think at the end of the season, were he to continue his performance, his value is £36.3m.
“If he were playing in a more competitive league, his transfer would be at the same level as that of Di Maria (£60m).”
