Wolverhampton Wanderers are interested in signing Benfica’s Brazilian playmaker Talisca, according to the Birmingham Mail.
The midfielder is currently on loan at Turkish club Besiktas, but it is unlikely that the move will become permanent in the summer, due to the lack of Champions League football next season.
Despite Wolves not playing apart in the European competition either, the fact that they will be in the Premier League next season could play a big factor in enticing Talisca to Molineux.
It is understood that Wolves have been long term admirers of the Brazilian, and will hope to conclude a deal before the start of their Premier League campaign.
Wolves are not the only club interested in Talisca, however.
They would be locked in a battle with two European giants in Liverpool and Roma to compete for his signature.
The 24 year old is a powerful midfielder standing at 6ft 3in tall.
As well as playing in the attacking midfield role, the Brazilian can also play as a forward and chip in with goals if need be.
He has played for Benfica 52 times, scoring 12 goals, and has played for Besiktas on 51 occasions, scoring 26 goals.
Talisca has yet to represent the Brazilian National side, but he has played for the youth development teams, kitting out for the under twenty’s and the under twenty threes.
Wolves will need to improve their squad this summer if they want a successful campaign in their first season back in the top flight.
With Leo Bonatini and Benik Afobe’s loans set to come to an end, Talisca would be a welcome addition in the attacking department.
