Chelsea Lining Up Massive January Bid For Alex Teixeira

Reports are out claiming that Chelsea are launching a massive January bid for Shakhtar Donetsk star Alex Teixeira.

The Sunday Express says Blues owner Roman Abramovich will give to go ahead for a spending spree in January, after a disastrous first half of the season which has seen Chelsea blow any realistic hope of retaining the title.

Chelsea need goals, with Diego Costa so far netting only four this season and Brazilian Teixeira, 25, has scored 23 goals in 23 games this season for Shakhtar.

He is more of an attacking midfielder than an out-and-out striker but Chelsea have been monitoring him for some time now and believe that playing just behind Costa, he could be the key to unlocking the goals in their centre forward.
