Manchester United are actively involved in the ongoing transfer window as they hope to bolster their overall displays ahead of the upcoming season.
The Red Devils have successfully captured Brazilian midfielder Fred and Porto youngster Dalot earlier in the week.
The Old Trafford outfits possess one of the most deadly attacking threats in the League but Mourinho is not contended with the number of goals scored by his strikers during last season and that has prompted him to make move for Brazilian striker Talisca.
Talisca, 24, was believed to be heading to Old Trafford during the previous transfer period in January but the acquisition of Alexis Sanchez prevented the deal from materializing.
The impressive and versatile player could be an upgrade to Anthony Martial, who blew hot-and-cold during last campaign.
The Frenchman is tipped to be heading out the Theater of Dreams this summer as he seeks a club where he would be guaranteed regular first-team actions in the 2018-19 season.
According to Portuguese media outlet O Jogo, the former Bahia striker is being valued at £30m by the Primeira giants and Mourinho is more than willing to work with him.
Talisca joined Benfica in 2014 where he played 78 matches, scoring 24 goals in the process to help the team to two consecutive trophies.
Despite his impressive goalscoring ratio for the team, Talisca was sent on a two-year loan deal with Turkish giants Besiktas, where he was involved in 51 goals in 80 matches. His goals was vital in the club’s run to the League trophy two seasons ago.
