Andre Silva is getting closer to Arsenal day by day as transfer talk continues to intensify.
According to the football transfer rumours in British media, Arsenal have entered talks with Eintracht Frankfurt for Andre Silva.
The 25-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
Frankfurt spent 3 million euros to sign the Portugal international from Milan in 2020. The 25-year-old has two years left on his current contract which expires in 2023.
The striker banged in 29 goals and provided 10 assists in 34 matches for Frankfurt this season across all fronts showcasing just how influential he has been in the final third.
The 25-year-old is considered to be one of the best strikers in Portugal. Andre Silva has also left his mark at the international stage after netting 16 goals in 40 senior appearances for the Portugal national team.
Silva will be high in demand this summer, with him having enjoyed a sublime season for Eintracht Frankfurt this term.
Mikel Arteta wants to sign a new striker and Silva is one of the names at the top of his wishlist. He is a firm fan of Eintracht Frankfurt striker and Arsenal could make a move for the player if the financial aspect makes sense.
The Gunners are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.
The Portugal international provides a unique blend between a classic center-forward and the modern striker.
Silva would provide a good variety to Arsenal’s attack.
According to the report, “Arsenal have opened talks with Eintracht Frankfurt to sign Andre Silva. According to the Transfer Window Podcast, the Gunners view the Portugal international as the perfect striker to boost their goal tally for next season. Silva, who was linked with Manchester United in April, scored 28 goals in the Bundesliga last term. It is unclear whether Alexandre Lacazette will stay at the Emirates, but the arrival of Silva would surely seal his exit. Barcelona are also monitoring the 25-year-old.“

It would take a huge offer from Arsenal to prise the 25-year-old striker from Frankfurt.
Eintracht Frankfurt are preparing to sell their striker should they receive a massive offer for him.
Andre Silva ideal fit for Arsenal?
Andre Silva stands as an excellent option for Arsenal. He has all the skillset required to be a success story at Arsenal. Therefore, it makes sense for Arteta to step up his attempts to bring the Portugal striker to Premier League side.
Stylistically, he would be a great fit in Arsenal.
If Mikel Arteta sees him as the right man for his side, Arsenal should quickly make a move to fend off interest from other clubs.
