first_img Alex Teixeira 1 Chelsea target Alex Teixeira will not be sold by Shakhtar Donetsk in January, their manager Mircea Lucescu has claimed.The Brazilian frontman has been in scintillating form for the Ukrainian side this season, netting 26 goals in as many appearances.His performances have alerted Europe’s big hitters – including Chelsea – with the player himself admitting recently he is aware of the interest in him.However, Shakhtar coach Lucescu insisted his prize asset will have to wait a further six months to secure a big-money move.“He needs to play more with us to develop further, although his level is already very high,” he said.“But if he sticks around, the offers in June could be higher,” claim reports in Italy.“At the moment we have not received any offer and of course, in the future if we receive one which satisfies the club, then we will consider it.”last_img
