Brazilian playmaker, Alex Teixeira, has claimed that Chelsea have already made a move for him and he will join the English Champions in January according to Metro.
Teixeira is currently in the form of his life and has scored 16 goals in 11 games so far this campaign, a strike rate that even eclipses Robert Lewandowski.
Shakhtar have done business with Chelsea previously and Teixeira would have the opportunity to link up with his former team mate, Willian, who has been one of Chelsea’s best players so far this campaign.
The Metro reported that Teixeira said: “I have an offer and it was a pleasure to know that Chelsea wanted to sign me.”
With Jose Mourinho’s future currently in the balance, this transfer could depend on who is in charge at the club once the transfer window comes around.
Teixeira would obviously have to compete for places with Willian, Eden Hazard, Oscar and Pedro or could his arrival pave the way for Eden Hazard to move on?
