Alex Teixeira: Liverpool are a huge club

Striker linked with a move to Anfield

Liverpool target Alex Teixeira says he is frustrated his move to Anfield is yet to go through.

Teixeira has been linked with a move to the Reds throughout the January window as Jurgen Klopp looks to boost his attacking options.

Liverpool offered £24.5 million for the forward but his club Shakhtar Donetsk are believed to be holding out for a fee in the region of £39million, which has angered Teixeira.

"Liverpool are a huge club. So many great players have passed through there," Teixeira told an Anfield HQ online interview.

“The team received one official offer from Liverpool. It was rejected. I don’t know why. It was a great offer. It is frustrating, but the manager and the club president decided against it.”

The 26-year-old has not given up hope of joining the Reds before Monday and admitted that he would be delighted to link up with countrymen Philippe Coutinho, Lucas and Roberto Firminio.

"I want to be there. But that is up to the club president now. I can only hope. It is frustrating. So now I'm just waiting, trying to be patient,” he added.

"I've played with Coutinho since we were 10-years-old. It would be a lot of fun to play with him again.

"I am always looking to score. I could definitely add an attacking threat, especially if I'm paired with all of the talented players they already have in the squad."
