Chelsea sent scouts to watch Benfica’s exciting Brazilian play-maker Talisca at the weekend.

The 20-year-old is known to be admired by Jose Mourinho, who in the summer indicated that he would have signed him if it wasn’t for work permit issues.

Talisca has hit the ground running in Portugal since his arrival from Bahia for £3.2m in July and has already scored nine goals for Benfica, including one in the Champions League.

Operating in the hole, he is one of the best young Brazilians in Europe, and recently earned a call up from national coach Dunga. The Portuguese champions value him at £35m according to the Evening Standard.

The Blues have previously purchased Ramires, David Luiz and Nemanja Matic from Jorge Jesus’s men and are unlikely to be put off by the large transfer fee.
