    Ayre went home without closing the deal for Texeira. Fun.

    Teixera would be wise to move to Liverpool I'd think.
    He's 26 and can't really afford to move to a better cluib and where he may not immediately be considered a first eleven player. I'd guess he's still chasing that first cap as well.

    I don't want to get my hopes up, but it really sounds like we have a good shot of getting Teixeira. Is there a better goal scorer available right now? I really like what I've seen of him, and his peripherals all look great. Realistically just the pace and lethality alone is what we really need, but everything else that he seems to have (great decision making, strong on the ball, versatility) just makes the idea that much better.

    Hopefully we aren't disappointed in the end.

    He's very good but let's not start with these types of comments.
    Had I asked yesterday who the best available goalscorer is, Teixera would not have been mentioned.

    It's not a ridiculous comment if you are just talking about players available to Liverpool. He definitely seems to have a very good knack for scoring.

    It was actually a legitimate question. Is there one? When I say available I mean to Liverpool.

    I mean, he's not even a Liverpool player. I'm not hyping him as such. It was just meant as a question.

    Not saying it's ridiculous. Just don't think the hype train needs to leave the station just yet.

    The hype train should have left the station on him a long time ago, but he plays in Ukraine and all that. He'd be perfect for Chelsea by the way. I'd be destroyed if he went there.

    He's probably the best they can do without paying 45 million pounds.

    we talked about it in the last thread...also a clause that Madrid can't sell him without Spurs having first shot at matching

    Why do you prefer Lacazette?

    Also lots of places reporting that Liverpool are willing to increase their bid and that Teixeira is keen on moving to Anfield (his dream is the play in the PL, apparently).

    Must not get too hopeful. Temper expectations as well because he almost certainly won't maintain his scoring record...at least not right away. Unless he pulls a Costa.

    Lacazette is a very good dribbler and more of a striker than Teixera. He can run behind the defense and he is a very clinical finisher. I feel Teixera is playing more like a 10 even though he seems to score in bunches.
    But he might be more expensive and not interested by Liverpool.

    I don't watch a lot or if any Donetsk, how good can Teixera be?

    Lol at Atletico wanting to buy a club, shouldn't they work on paying any debt they have first?

    Continuing the Xhaka talks, he isn't just rumoured to Arsenal, almost every top 5-7 domestic football league has Xhaka going to one of the top teams. I've seen him linked with Sparta Moskov, Zenit, Juventus, Valcenia, Atletico, and Arsenal.

    Now in terms of Arsenal, this would a freakin' awesome buy. Gotta strengthen up that midfield and Granit does that. But I do think cgf is overrating Xhaka's price tag, I highly doubt he would go for anything close to 40 million Euros. One site, Express which is a joke has him going for £37m which Wenger won't spend, while The Guardian, a more trusted site, has him going for £26m or 34 million Euros. Newspapers calling him "a young, but better tackling Schweinsteiger". :sarcasm:

    PSG is apparently after Lewa. They have met his agent. PSG will spend some dough next summer, book it. Zlatan will be gone and Lavezzi, Maxwell and maybe Cavani will be off the books.

    Any chance that PSG will move Lucas? Liverpool could really use an out and out winger. Someone like Williams or Lucas fits the bill though they're going to be expensive. Liverpool are also one of the teams linked with Xhaka (and he would address their needs in midfield).

    Melissa Reddy is reporting that Teixeira is keen on Liverpool to put a name to the rumour, and that Liverpool were encouraged to come have discussions face to face. Still a difficult negotiation.

    I think if Liverpool want to get where they think they're supposed to be, they need to stop this haggling over a few million pounds business.
