Brazilian footballer Anderson Talisca has revealed that he is keen to join a Premier League outfit this summer. The 24-year-old has been on the radar of Manchester United, Liverpool and Wolverhampton Wanderers over the past year.

Speaking on Brazilian outlet Correio, Talisca revealed that there is indeed interest from the English top-flight but refused to confirm anything concrete from any side.

He 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 has spent the last two seasons on loan with Besiktas but he is expected to return to parent club Benfica this summer before weighing up a new challenge.

As things stand, Benfica are looking at a fee of around £35m in order to part ways with the Brazilian, who can feature in different positions across the attack.

Talisca primarily played for Besiktas in a central attacking role last season and managed to contribute 20 goals and seven assists across all competitions.
