Benfica midfielder Anderson Talisca is reportedly considering rejecting a move to the Premier League in favour of joining Roma.
Liverpool and Arsenal are among the English clubs to have been linked with the Brazilian of late, but according to talkSPORT, the Serie A outfit have emerged as the frontrunners for his signature.
Talisca has spent the last two years on loan in Turkey with Besiktas, where he scored 20 goals in 47 appearances.
Benfica are said to value Talisca at around £35m.
Earlier reports suggest that England is the attacking midfielder's preferred destination.
