Anderson Talisca: A reported target for Liverpool

Championship side Wolves have joined Manchester United and Liverpool in the race to sign a Benfica star, according to reports.

BirminghamLive claim that on-loan Besiktas forward Anderson Talisca is attracting interest from the Championship leaders amid reports he could move in the summer.

Talisca is in the second of a two-year loan spell with the Turkish Super Lig club, and it is believed that they have first refusal on a permanent deal.

There is speculation that Besiktas could secure a permanent deal for the Brazilian before selling him on for a profit.

Last week Portuguese paper A Bola claimed United had stolen a march on Liverpool and were closing in on a €40million deal, however his agent denied any contact.

“I’m not aware of any interest from Manchester United in Talisca,” Carlos Leite told Record via Sporting Witness.

“Neither I nor the player. If there’s anything between clubs, it’s something else. But one thing is certain: I, who am the agent of the player, did not speak to anyone.

“In fact, until the end of the season, we will absolutely not do anything with any other club other than Besiktas.

“The Turkish have a buying option that needs to be respected. Until then, it makes no sense for me or the athlete to talk to anyone or hit any other scenario. If Besiktas activate the option, he will be their player.”
