Alex Teixeira seems pretty keen on a move to Liverpool

Alex Teixeira has offered Liverpool fans hope that he will sign for the Reds after his recent activity on Instagram.

The Merseyside outfit have been linked with a £24.6m move for the Brazilian after Liverpool chief executive Ian Ayre reportedly met Shakhtar Donetsk officials to finalise a deal last week.

However, a proposed move to the 18-time English champions has failed to materialise with eight days left of the January transfer window.

But some social media savvy Liverpool supporters have spotted Teixeira’s recent activity on Instagram – and it suggests the playmaker is keen on a move to Anfield.

Shakhtar playmaker Teixeira has scored 22 goals in 15 games in the Ukrainian top-flight, while the 26-year-old has netted three times in six Champions League appearances.
