Report: Liverpool told Teixeira is back on the market months after Anfield deal collapsed

By Harvey Byrne

Liverpool January target Alex Teixeira is set to quit China after just six months, according to a report.

Italian football website Calciomercato claim that the Brazilian forward has been offered to Serie A side Inter Milan.

It is understood that the 26-year-old has failed to settle in China and that his club Jiangsu Suning have been underwhelmed by the attacking midfielder’s performances to date.

The Anfield club failed to meet the Brazilian’s £38million asking price in the winter window from former club Shakhtar Donetsk.

However, 2016 has seen the rise of football in China with their mega-money offers and Jiangsu Suning were able to meet the asking price of the five-times Ukranian league winner.

It is believed that the winger who signed a three-year contract is keen on a move back to Europe and that the Merseysiders are aware of his availability.

Although Liverpool have already signed forward Sadio Mane this summer, there is a possibility that Klopp will rekindle his interest in the Brazilian forward.

The Merseysiders were in advanced talks to prise Teixeira from Ukraine in January but could not agree a fee.

The tricky attacker starred in 49 appearances in all competitions for both of his sides during the recently completed season scoring an impressive 32 goals.

In other Liverpool news, the Reds have put a £7million price tag on Luis Alberto with Sevilla expected to make a bid for the attacking midfielder.
