The Shakhtar Donetsk star, who
has scored 16 goals in just 11
league games this season,
plans to follow the likes of
Douglas Costa and Luiz Adriano
out of Ukraine to a major
Donetsk attacker Alex
Teixeira has revealed that
Chelsea are interested in
signing him and suggested a
move to the Premier League
could take place in January.

The Brazilian, who has played
in a variety of midfield roles
during his time in Ukraine, has
been in scintillating form this
season, netting 16 goals in 11
appearances – a scoring rate
better than even the likes of
Robert Lewandowski and
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Teixeira’s goal tally has been
aided by the departures of
Douglas Costa to Bayern Munich
and Luiz Adriano to AC Milan, as
Shakhtar manager Mircea
Lucescu has moved the
Brazilian further up the pitch.

But now he has indicated he is
ready to follow his former
team-mates out of Ukraine,
suggesting that there is
interest from Jose Mourinho’s
Premier League champions.

“It’s all rumours so far,” he

“I’m glad to hear a club as big
as Chelsea is interested on me.

“It would be important to play
a tournament such as the
Premier League, and better yet
if it came in January. I’m
welcoming a new challenge.”
