Shakhtar Donetsk forward Alex Teixeira is still hopeful of a move to Liverpool.

The Brazilian is on tour in the US with his club, and spoke to reporters there.

Teixeira says the Ukranian side had rejected a bid of €32 million from Liverpool, but that his agent is still attempting everything possible to get him to Anfield.

"It would be an honour to wear the Liverpool shirt. There has only been one offer of €32m and Shakhtar rejected it. I know my agent is still attempting everything possible to help me get to Liverpool," he told journalist Stefano Fusaro.
