Liverpool are favourites ahead of Tottenham to sign Talisca this summer with the £35m-rated Benfica attacking midfielder believed to be keen on a move to England, according to reports in Portugal via TeamTalk.
Talisca joined Benfica from Bahia in 2014 and developed in to one of the most promising young midfielders in Portuguese football before joining Besiktas on a two-year loan in 2016.
The 24-year-old was a huge success in Turkey as he helped Besiktas clinch the title in his first season while he provided an impressive 20 goals and 8 assists in all competitions last campaign.
The Brazilian U23 international has caught the attention of clubs here in England as TeamTalk carried a report late last month that claimed Liverpool and Tottenham were among the teams to have expressed their interest.
Mauricio Pochettino is keen to strengthen his squad as he looks to turn Spurs in to genuine title contenders and Talisca is seemingly on the Argentinean coaches radar this summer.
Jurgen Klopp is also in the market for attacking reinforcements as he needs to add some depth behind the likes of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane next season if the Reds are to compete on all fronts.
Besiktas have passed up the opportunity to make Talisca’s loan move permanent, despite having the option-to-buy clause in his contract, and the report says Liverpool are now favourites to land the South American.
TeamTalk are citing a report from Record that claims Talisca is keen on a move to England with the Reds front-runners for his signature as Benfica prepare to cash-in if £35m is put on the table this summer.
Obviously there is still plenty of time left for Tottenham to step-up their interest as Liverpool are still considering their options but these reports from Portugal suggest the Merseysiders are leading the chase to land Talisca and he’d be an exciting addition to their squad.
