Alex Teixeira, Daniel Sturridge, Jerome Sinclair - Liverpool gossip

Liverpool Gossip

Liverpool's pursuit of Shakhtar Donetsk forward Alex Teixeira appears to be on hold, says the Daily Express.

The Ukrainian club's chief executive Sergei Palkin insists they will not do business this month - unless the Reds stump up £53m for the 26-year-old.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp does not know when Daniel Sturridge will be fit again after ruling the striker out of the next two games against West Ham United and Leicester City.

"Some things are not right if you are injured that often," said the German in the Guardian.

Liverpool striker Jerome Sinclair could be on his way out of Anfield after Watford manager Quique Sanchez Flores confirmed his interest in the 19-year-old, according to the Daily Star.
