Liverpool target Alex Teixeira has agreed a ?38million move to Chinese side Jiangsu Suning, according to a report.
The Shakhtar Donetsk attacker, for whom Liverpool had a ?24million offer declined last month, is set to link up with fellow Brazilian and former Chelsea midfielder Ramires at the club. Ramires sealed his move eight days ago.
ESPN Brazil, espn.uol.com.br, reported Teixeira would become the latest big name to move to China for a fee of 50million euros, quoting Shakhtar manager Mircea Lucescu as saying: " We have agreed the sale of Alex Teixeira to China.
"But we will wait a bit to finalise it due to the situation with Luiz Adriano.
"But it's all sorted on our side."
Teixeira's fee, if confirmed, will be a new Asian transfer record, eclipsing the ?31.7million Guangzhou Evergrande paid for Atletico Madrid's Jackson Martinez two days ago.
Jiangsu Suning are coached by former Chelsea defender Dan Petrescu.
