Chelsea and Liverpool closing on each others Brazilian targets this month

Chelsea and Liverpool are believed to be closing in on signing Alexandre Pato and Alex Teixeira currently.

The pair had both been linked with moves for both, with the Reds first linked with Pato, and the Blues originally believed to have held talks with Teixeira last month.

Now Chelsea are said to be close to agreeing a deal for the former AC Milan star, while the Shakhtar Donetsk forward is said to have told his agent to seal a move for him to Liverpool.

The Blues are claimed to be close to agreeing an initial loan deal for Pato, which will see the 26 year-old get his desired return to Europe this month, but he would need to prove himself before getting the permanent deal with the Premier League champions.

The Anfield club look to be getting the most exciting transfer however, with Teixeira having scored a huge 22 goals in his 15 league appearances this term, only failing to find the net in two of his league outings this season.
