According to the report, Everton have shown tangible interest in signing Andre Silva, but AC Milan won’t accept a dime less than the 38 million euros they paid in summer for the ex-Porto man, who has turned out to be a flop so far. Though he has been prolific for his country and in European competitions, Silva’s time in Milan could be coming to a close, especially if the Rossoneri really can’t refinance their debt. They also have Financial Fair Play considerations. Super Agent Jorge Mendes is set to travel to Milan in the coming days in order to discuss things with the AC Milan.
Will Andre Silva be a Everton player soon? Only time will tell.
A move away from AC Milan is not only the best move for Andre Silva, but also for the club.
