Benfica starlet Anderson Talisca is in-demand, with Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal all linked with the young Brazilian.
The 20-year-old was tracked by several high-profile sides over the summer, before joining Benfica form Bahia. Chelsea boss José Mourinho has since claimed the player would be his were he able to get a work permit.
Starting off the season in tantalising form, Talisca has already struck on six occasions during his debut seven appearances in Portugal's top-flight. With 555 minutes under his belt already during his debut season in Europe, the left-footed midfielder averages one goal every 93 minute.
Standing at 6'2", the Brazilian is a substantial aerial threat and is indirectly prolific from set-plays. Often shooting from distance, Talisca's pace, power and skill have attracted attention from across Europe.
Any potential suitors would be looking to improve the youngster's positioning and close-range finishing though, much like Arsene Wenger has done with the likes of Thierry Henry in the past. Furthermore, the demands of the Premier League and other top European leagues would require Talisca to improve his defensive contributions.
Along with several other top clubs, Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea are reported to have expressed interest in the youngster, who had a reported £18m buy-out clause inserted into his contract upon joining Benfica.
The £3.5m Benfica shelled out for Talisca would see them reap profits of £14.5m, should a top European side swoop for his services. The Brazilian also has two Champions League appearances to his name, meaning that a potential purchase would leave him cup-tied and therefore unavailable in Europe's premier competition.
