Shakhtar Donetsk striker has revealed that Chelsea have started talks with his club over a transfer move to Stamford Bridge, according the Metro.
Other sources have claimed the Blues have already concluded on a deal to bring the sensational Brazilian to the EPL in January with an announcement set to follow shortly.
There have been talks linking the 25 year old to Chelsea for quite sometime and the player now claims both sides are already discussing a potential deal that will see him join the Blues. The striker said:
“I know there is interest from Chelsea and there have been some talks, but at the moment nothing is concrete.
“Now I just want to go on vacation in Brazil then I will see what the future holds.”
Alex Teixeira is understood to be on Chelsea’s January transfer wishlist and it had been revealed that it will take a bid of £30m to lure the striker to Stamford Bridge.
In October, the striker confirmed he will be happy to move to West London should the Blues table an official offer and he also stated it would be a dream come true to play for the Blues.
The striker has scored 22 league goals in 15 league appearances for Shakhtar Donetsk this season.
Should Teixeira move to Stamford bridge, he will join Ramires, Willian, Oscar and Kenedy as the Brazilian internationals at Chelsea.
