Liverpool on red alert as 20-goals Brazilian target determined to join Premier League

Anderson Talisca has revealed that he is keen to join a Premier League club after confirming that he will leave Besiktas this summer.

The Brazilian midfielder is due to return to parent club Benfica following a two-year loan stint with the Black Eagles.

Rather than seeing out his contract at the Estadio da Luz, though, Talisca instead hopes to join a team in the English top flight.

Manchester United are the side to have been most strongly tipped to sign the 24-year-old, while Liverpool and newly-promoted Wolverhampton Wanderers are also rumoured to be willing to meet his £35m valuation.

Asked by Brazilian outlet Correio which European league he sees himself playing in next term, Talisca said: “England. For the supporters, for it being a theatre, a show. Every game is a spectacle and I like it.

“There is interest, there is, but there is nothing certain. I have not hit anything yet. It’s just speculation. These things of negotiation I cannot speak.”

Talisca scored 20 goals in 47 appearances for Besiktas in the 2017-18 season from his attacking midfielder position
