Joao Teixeira set for Liverpool exit in summer - sources
Liverpool midfielder Joao Teixeira looks set to leave Anfield when his contract expires this summer, sources have told ESPN FC.
Teixeira, 23, joined Liverpool in 2012 from Sporting Lisbon after impressing against them in the NextGen Series.
The Portugal under-21 international has struggled to establish himself at Anfield after making his Premier League debut in February 2014 in a win against Fulham under former Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers.
Teixeira then spent last season out on loan at Brighton and he caught the eye for the Championship club with six goals in 35 appearances in all competitions.
The attacking midfielder has made seven appearances for Liverpool so far this season with Jurgen Klopp prepared to give some of the younger members of his squad a chance in the early rounds of the Capital One Cup and FA Cup.
Teixeira scored his first goal for Liverpool in the FA Cup replay victory over Exeter, but he has made just one brief cameo appearance in the Premier League this term.
Liverpool held talks with Teixeira's representatives last month to discuss his future but the player looks set to leave Anfield in search of regular first-team football.
Fiorentina have been linked with a move for Teixeira, but sources have told ESPN FC that the 23-year-old has not agreed a deal with any interested parties.
