A host of Championship sides are asking after Joao Teixeira, reckons the Bolton Evening News.
The Bolton manager Neil Lennon, currently in the midst of a relegation battle, wants the Portuguese playmaker – but Teixeira is apparently not keen on moving to a side so low down the second tier of English football.
The 22-year-old shone during his temporary deal with Brighton last term, but has only been given one game with Liverpool to show what he can do so far this campaign. And versus Bournemouth in the League Cup he was brilliant, creating Nathaniel Clyne’s goal with a back-heel which was cleared off the line.
It’s almost a shame there are so many playmakers (Coutinho, Adam Lallana, Roberto Firmino) blocking his path to the first-team, as it’s abundantly clear there’s some talent to hone.
Teixeira is technical, brave on the ball and creative, but it’s difficult to see where his chances will come considering he was left out of the Europa League squad.
That competition could have been perfect to test his mettle, but as it is, a strong League Cup run might be Teixeira’s only chance of minutes.
Personally, we hope he stays at Liverpool, as with you current injury crisis, you never know when he’ll be needed.
