Chelsea are reportedly interested in signing Shakhtar Donetsk ace Alex Teixeira.

The defending Premier League champions, who lie 15th in the table having failed to only pick up 11 points from their opening ten games, have identified the Brazil midfielder as their number one transfer target ahead of the January transfer window.

The 25-year-old playmaker, who is yet to make his international debut, has scored a sensational 17 goals in 19 games in all competitions for the Ukrainian outfit this season.

It is understood that Teixeira is keen on a move to the English top-flight, with some media reports suggesting the Shakhtar star has already received an offer from Jose Mouirnho’s Blues ahead of the New Year period.
