This is one deal that has been so much in the news since, and with the report coming in now the deal will be finalized soon. The reports claimed that an agreement has been reached and there is an ongoing discussion with the player’s agent as regards securing the deal.
Daily Star reported that the 25-year old Brazilian has agreed to leave Shakhtar Donetsk and he will be heading to West London to join Chelsea FC. The forward has caught the attention of lots of other top teams like PSG but it seems that Chelsea FC have won the battle as his switch draws closer. His phenomenal performance for the Ukrainian team is the main reason behind teams trying to get his service.
Alex Teixeira has scored 22 league goals for Shakhtar Donetsk this season and he is undoubtedly one of the top scorers in Europe at the moment. He is versatile as he has been constantly used as central forward, winger as well as an attacking midfielder. He will easily fit into many teams as he can play in multiple positions.
While he is seen as a player that will consistently start each game for Chelsea, the exact player he will be replacing in the starting lineup is yet to be known. Eden Hazard has flopped so many times this season while new recruit, Pedro, has also failed to sign; it is yet unknown which of these players Alex Teixeira will replace.
