Sky Sports is reporting Shakhtar turned down a formal bid from the Merseyside club for the 26-year-old Brazilian because it fell short of their exuberant £35milllion valuation of the player.
"The team received one official offer from Liverpool. It was rejected. I don't know why," Teixeira told NBC Sports.
"It was a great offer. It is frustrating. But the manager and the club president decided against it. So now I am just waiting, trying to be patient.
"I know my agent is still attempting everything possible to help me get to Liverpool."
Teixeira, who has scored 26 goals in 26 outings for Shakhtar this season, also expressed his desire to again play with former teammate Philippe Coutinho at Anfield.
"I've played with Coutinho since we were 10 years old. It would be a lot of fun to play with him again," he added.
