Teixeira has played 66 times for Jiangsu Suning since signing from Shakhtar Donetsk, scoring 28 goals and creating 21 assists in that time.
The 27-year-old is considered to be one of the best attacking midfielders in Brazil.
The Brazil international has been in impressive form for Jiangsu Suning this season.

Inter Milan will be desperate to make an impact in winter transfer window.
According to the report in Italian Media, Brazil international’s opportunities have been limited in recent times. Inter Milan is preparing to take the Brazilian on loan in January, as Coach Luciano Spalletti doesn’t have a player who can play behind the strikers.
How strong that interest is and whether Inter Milan will make a winter move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
