Liverpool have been given a second chance of signing Alex Teixeira after he was placed on the transfer list by Jiangsu Suning.
The Reds tried to land the Brazilian back in January 2016 when he was plying his trade for Ukrainian side Shakhtar Donetsk.
Liverpool offered to pay over £25million for the attacking midfielder, in what would have been Jurgen Klopp’s first major signing since taking charge at Anfield.
However, the approach was knocked back by Shakhtar and within a month Teixeira had been sold to Jiangsu Suning for a then Chinese record fee of £38.4m [€50m].
The 27-year-old had been very keen on a move to Anfield, though, and he could finally get the chance to move there.
According to Tuttosport, Teixeira has been transfer listed by Jiangsu Suning and they are ready to sell him in January.
The Chinese club are apparently ready to cash in on the Brazilian after head coach Fabio Capello said he was no longer part of his plans.
That news will no doubt be of interest to Liverpool, but Inter Milan are also thought to be keen on Teixeira too.
