Liverpool willing to pay £21m for 16-goal striker

Posted by

Though still awaiting his first callup to the Brazil national team, Benfica attacker Anderson Talisca is a promising striker who has demonstrated solid skill in Portugal. His strong play in spite of somewhat limited production has earned the attention of Liverpool, who are now willing to splash a lot of cash to bring him to Anfield.

According to HITC via Portuguese newspaper O Jogo, Liverpool are apparently willing to pay up to £21 million for the Benfica forward Talisca.

Liverpool are in the market for a new attacker this summer after failing to get the desired production out of Christian Benteke last season.

Talisca has scored 16 league goals dating back to his first two senior campaigns in Brazil with Bahia. He enjoyed a breakout year with Benfica after a transfer to the Primeira Liga giants in 2014, scoring a career-high nine goals in 32 appearances.

During the 2015-16 season, Talisca made three goals in 20 appearances in Primeira Liga en route to league title and league cup honors.
