Chelsea told to pay £30M to land 19-goal midfield star

Chelsea have been told that Alex Teixeira will not be sold for less than £30 Million, the DailyStar reports.

The Brazilian midfielder has been in tremendous form this season, scoring 19 league goals in his 13 appearances thus far, helping his side to sit joint-top of the table, having won all but two of their opening fixtures.

Teixeira recently revealed he had an offer to join Premier League champions Chelsea, and that he was hoping to complete the switch in the coming window, which appears to tell that the only issue remaining is for the two clubs involved to agree terms.

Shakhtar are now said to be unwilling to allow their in-form star to leave for less than £30 Million.

The Blues have seriously struggled this season, slipping to a huge 15 points off the lead of the English top flight, after only 12 matches, with their three strikers having returned a disappointing three goals between them.
