Chelsea must dish out £30m for Alex Teixeira

Shakhtar place £30m price tag on Teixeira

Chelsea will have to pay a fee in the region of £30m, if they are to land the services of in-form Shakhtar Donetsk star Alex Teixeira.

The 25-year-old has recently revealed his desire to join the Premier League holders.

Teixeira has been the subject of a failed bid from the Blues previously, and The Express reports that the West London side will only land their transfer target provided they match Shakhtar's hefty valuation.

The Brazilian attacker has notched 20 goals in all competitions for the Ukrainian giants this season.
