NTV Spor are now also reporting that a deal has been reached and that Talisca will arrive in Istanbul over the next few days to undergo a medical and complete the move.
Talisca was closely linked with Liverpool as well as a £20 million move to Wolves according to the Sun.
Per the source, the Championship outfit were on the verge of completing the move in what would have been a marquee signing for the new Chinese owners – Fosun.
The Brazilian midfielder scored twice in the Champions League last season and made 21 appearances in the league last season.
Talisca will play Champions League football this season if his Besiktas move goes ahead as planned.
