Arsenal boss Wenger gets serious about Benfica sensation Anderson Talisca

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is keen on Benfica midfielder Anderson Talisca. The Daily Star says the 20-year-old is currently the top scorer in the Portuguese Primeira Liga, having hit six goals in seven games.

That form has caught the eye of Wenger.

Reports suggest Arsenal scouts were in the crowd to watch Talisca in action at the weekend as Benfica defeated Arouca.

Talisca, who only moved from Brazilian club Bahia to Benfica in July for a fee in the region of £3m, is understood to have a £18m buyout clause inserted into his contract.
