Joao Teixeira is likely to leave Liverpool this summer and already has a deal in principle to join Fiorentina, according to reports in Italy. 

Teixeira, 23, is out of contract in the summer, and is unlikely to re-sign with Liverpool as manager Jurgen Klopp prepares for a huge overhaul of his squad.

According to Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, Teixiera is most likely to end up at Fiorentina, where he has already lined up a move to join the Viola.

Teixeira has shown glimpses of promise during his rare outings for Liverpool, but looks set to be allowed to move on at the end of the season.

The Portuguese midfielder has made just two Premier League starts for the club since a £850,000 switch from Sporting Lisbon in the January 2012 window.
