LFC Exit: 'Excellent' Liverpool attacker set to quit Anfield. Transfer 'agreement' reached with Fiorentina in March

Over the last few months, I've regularly argued that 'excellent' Liverpool attacker Joao Carlos Teixeira should quit Anfield this summer (for regular first-team football), and new reports today suggest that the Portuguese forward is on the verge of leaving the club.

In March, Sky Sports Italy journo Gianluca DiMarzio claimed:

"Fiorentina have reached an agreement in principal with Joao Carlos Teixeira. Fiorentina coach Paulo Sousa sent representatives to England, and Fiorentina got to work right away to sign Teixeira".

On Monday, Italian newspaper Tutto Mercato reported:

"Fiorentina are set to sign Liverpool's Joao Carlos Teixeira on a free transfer, and Paulo Sousa is driving the transfer".

I'd love to see Teixeira stay at Anfield, but onlf if he's going to be given a proper chance, and that is never going to happen under Klopp.

Like Rodgers, Klopp has utterly failed to give Teixeira a consistent chance in the team, so why should he hang around and waste even more of his career?

Teixeira is nearly 24 years old, yet he *still* hasn't been given a single start in the league. To add insult to injury, Klopp even played Steven Caulker (a central defender) up-front in several games instead of bringing on Teixeira, who is a dedicated attacking player.

Four minutes of Premier League game time all season? That says it all, and Teixeira is clearly right to seek a transfer away. He needs to play under a manager who appreciates his potential, and that clearly isn't Jurgen Klopp.
