Shakhtar are demanding around £35 million to let Alex Teixeira leave the team this month.
The Brazilian attacking midfielder has been a top target for Chelsea and Liverpool for a long-time, and it seems that better offer will decide the future of Teixeira.
Klopp had signed Armenian attacker Henrikh Mkhitaryan from Shakhtar for Borussia Dortmund two years ago, and a good relationship with Ukrainian club could help Liverpool to lure Brazilian star at Anfield with the excellent form with goals scored in only 16 matches this season.
A source close to the club claiming that Shakhtar are holding out for £35m for Brazilian ace.
Teixeira is an excellent talent who could quickly repay his investment. The Merseyside Reds are just three points behind from Manchester United, and Teixeira’s goals could help Liverpool to finish 2015/16 campaign in the top four, and qualify for the Champions League qualification.
Liverpool summer signing Christian Benteke has failed to impress Jurgen Klopp since his arrival at Anfield and signing Teixeira could help his team to score more goals and dominate in Premier League.
Ukrainian club are currently in the United States as part of a winter training camp and Merseysiders could start private talks with Brazilian attacking midfielders representatives and make another bid for his services.
