Manchester United are believed to be in pole position to sign Brazil international striker Talisca, who currently plays for Turkish side Besiktas on a two-year loan deal from Benfica.
The latest report from Liverpool suggests that the Reds have leapfrogged their rivals in the race for the striker’s signature.
Jurgen Klopp has surprisingly developed an interest in the 24-year-old despite his team’s rich qualities at the final half of the pitch.
The German manager is now ready to hijack Mourinho’s move for Talisca in the summer.
According to O JOGO, a Portuguese media outlet on Monday claimed that the Red Devils have offered a €40million to get Talisca.
Another media outlet, known to be Fotospor, is reporting that the Merseyside club are ready to offer Daniel Sturridge plus £21m to the Portuguese club in the summer, so as to beat their Premier League counterpart to his services.
Daniel Sturridge has obviously passed his prime and the Reds are willing to include him in their offer to Benfica in the summer in order to convince the Primera giants to let go of their underrated striker.
Talisca, 24, found the back of the net in 20 times in all competitions for Turkish side Besiktas, this season.
The competition for Talisca’s signature continues between United and Liverpool, as both teams want to improve their attacking prowess ahead of next season.
