The 20-year-old has been linked to a host of Premier League clubs this season, with the youngster rising to prominence through a number of fantastic displays for Portuguese side Benfica.

He has been rewarded with a call up to the Brazil squad, but Luiz has warned him against getting ahead of himself just yet.

The Paris Saint-German defender also plied his trade at Benfica for years, and insists that Talisca could benefit from the plentiful playing time he is likely to get with the Primeira Liga Champions.

Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester United, and Luiz’s old club Chelsea are all believed to be interested in the player, but the 27-year-old centre-back believes a switch to any of those clubs could prevent Talisca from reaching his full potential.

Talisca is having a great season and deserves the accolades he is getting from around the world.

“I just hope that he can continue playing well because he will be very important for Brazil,” he said.

“He had the good fortune to fall into the hands on Jorge Jesus. He’s a coach that improves his players.

“Every year we see Benfica sell three or four players with six or seven others the subject of offers.

“Jorge Jesus empowers and teaches players though. Talisca still has plenty to learn and I’m sure he’ll get better in the future.”
