One of Chelsea’s top targets this transfer window has been Shakhtar Donetsk’s Alex Teixeira.
The Blues have offered £30 Million for the midfielder, but this is yet to be accepted, leaving Chelsea nervously waiting a response.
Reportedly the hold up is due to Shakhtar Donetsk’s president Rinat Akhmetory, refusing to sell the player during this transfer window.
The 26 year old ace has had a good season so far, which is making it difficult to convince Akhmetov to sell. Scoring 22 goals in 15 matches has only increased both Chelsea’s desire to buy and Shakhtar’s insistence to keep him.
