Arsene Wenger has ordered Arsenal scouts to compile extensive reports on Anderson Talisca ahead of a prospective January move for the Benfica striker. (O Jogo)

The 20-year-old talisman has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League, with Chelsea also credited with an interest in his services.

Talisca only moved to Portugal during the summer, but his fine form has already alerted other suitors in the build-up to the mid-season window.

A call-up to the Brazil national team squad has raised the talented youngster's profile further, and the Gunners are seriously considering an attempt to lure him to the Emirates, according to Sport Witness.

Wenger is unlikely to meet Talisca's €40 million buyout clause, but will have to pay a significant transfer fee if he is going to beat Jose Mourinho to the player's signature.
