FINALLY: Arsenal set to sign £17m Chelsea target

A report from English Tabloid DAILY STAR claims that Arsenal are leading the race to sign Chelsea target Talisca. The Brazilian starlet had attracted a host of European clubs throughout the summer but lack of concrete offers saw his stay in his present club Benfica. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger though will look to snap up the 20-year-old if Lukas Podolski decides to quit the club in the new year.

It is also believed that Arsenal scouts watched Talisca in action for Brazil’s U-21s side against Bolivia on Friday Talisca has impressed with Benfica and the 20 year old is currently the top scorer in the Portuguese Primeira Liga. Chelsea are also interested in the player, like they are on almost all players across Europe.


Talisca though might be lured to join Chelsea as Jose Mourinho would use Nemanja Matic to convince the young lad to ditch Arsenal and make a move to stamford Bridge instead. Liverpool have also scouted the player heavily but it is believed Arsenal are ahead in negotiations.

Arsenal are also monitoring Fenerbahce striker Emmanuel Emenike as reports from Turkey claim that Wenger has the Nigerian on the top of his shopping list ahead of the upcoming January transfer window. The 27 year old had scored 12 goals last season for Fenerbahce and is valued close to £15m.
