Chelsea preparing bid for Benfica star Talisca

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is eyeing a move for Benfica midfielder Talisca. The Daily Star says reports from Portugal reveal Mourinho wants the Brazilian youngster at Stamford Bridge after he caught the eye with a string of top displays for the Lisbon giants.

Talisca has netted three goals in five games for Benfica to help the club top the Portuguese league.

The attacking midfielder only moved to Europe from hometown club Bahia earlier this summer in a £3m deal.

However, he could now be set to follow in the footsteps of the likes of David Luiz and Nemanja Matic and complete a switch to west London from Benfica.
