Liverpool FC could hijack Man United’s bid to sign 23-year-old Brazilian – report
Liverpool FC could make a move to sign Brazilian attacking midfielder Talisca this summer, say reports
Liverpool FC could move in to hijack Manchester United’s interest in signing Brazilian attacking midfielder Talisca this summer, according to reports in Turkey.
Turkish outlet Fanatik, as quoted by the Daily Mirror, is reporting that Manchester United have been the “hot favourites” to land the 23-year-old this summer as Jose Mourinho looks to bolster his squad.
However, the same report now says that Liverpool FC are also interested and that the Reds could be ready to step up and bid for the Brazilian, who is on loan to Besiktas from Portuguese side Benfica this season.
Talisca has been in superb form for Besiktas this season since his loan move. The midfielder has netted 10 goals and made three assists in 25 league games so far this term.
Liverpool FC are likely to be on the lookout for midfield reinforcements this summer, with Emre Can seemingly set to leave Anfield when his contract expires at the end of the season.
Manchester United are also set to bolster their squad this summer, with Michael Carrick due to retire and Marouane Fellain’s future still a source of uncertainty.
Meanwhile, Liverpool FC will return to Premier League action on Saturday when they take on Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park in the top flight.
