The 20-year-old has been tipped for big things, and at such a young age already looks like a fantastic talent.

Jose Mourinho clearly rates the youngster highly, and with Didier Drogba not likely to stay at Stamford Bridge for any length of time, the Portuguese manager may be looking for a replacement already.

Chelsea are not the only interested party however, as their scouts were joined by representatives from Olympique de Marseille, Hamburg, and Granada.

The Premier League side will certainly face competition for his signature, but a move to a club with the stature of Chelsea may be too difficult to turn down for Talisca.

With the striker in the midst of a breakout season, Mourinho is allegedly plotting a January bid having seen him net eight times in 12 games.

He didn’t manage to find the back of the net on this occasion, but Chelsea are unlikely to be too perturbed.
