The 22-year-old is rated as one of South America’s most exciting young talents, often drawing comparisons with Manchester City star Yaya Toure due to his powerful and ranging frame.
The 6 foot 3 starlet currently plies his trade with Benfica but after a decent debut campaign at Estadio da Luz, notching up eleven goals in 44 appearances during 2014/15, found himself on the fringes of their Primeira Liga-winning squad last season.
Last week, O Jogo appeared to report that Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp had held talks with Talisca regarding a summer move and also handed in a work permit application to the FA.
And the same Portuguese publication now claim the dynamic attacker has told close friends that he wants to sign for Liverpool, with him ‘anxious’ to move to Anfield.
Talisca is represented by renowned ‘super agent’ Jorge Mendes, who is reportedly trying to force through a move to Merseyside. It’s believed Benfica want £21million for the South American starlet.
