"There were many big and important teams who wanted Talisca, and many tried to sign him even though they knew he could not play in England".

The Belgian midfielder played just 16 times in the Premier League this season, making only five starts though he did score the winning goal in United's 2-1 win over Arsenal in April.

Arsenal legend Robert Pires has backed Manchester United midfielder to be a success if he moves to the Emirates on a free deal this summer, according to the Mirror.

Jose Mourinho has reportedly identified a need to invest in four more positions despite already completing the transfers of Shakhtar Donetsk's Fred and Porto's Diogo Dalot.

"I can not blame him, but at the end of the season, with fear, I went to talk to him and I tried to ask him what was going on", he told Argentinean newspaper Ole.

"I'm sure Arsenal players will be looking at it and saying 'well we're going to be linked with quite a few players but who comes in the door?'"

'Certainly he's a player where you can change the system of play.

"So [he is] another player that people will say "yeah, that's a decent signing".

The Brazil U23 global registered 20 goals and eight assists across all competitions for Besiktas in the previous campaign as they finished fourth to qualify for next season's Europa League competition. "He needs a new start and I think, with his quality, I think he can help Unai Emery and he can help the Arsenal players in the squad". Pires continued. "But I think he's a good player if he wants to join Arsenal, I think it would be good news".
