Sevilla monitoring Milan striker Andre Silva
Sevilla target Andre Silva from AC Milan to boost their attacking options.
The 22-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
The Portugal international joined AC Milan from Porto in July 2017. His contract expires in the summer of 2022.
Silva made 30 appearances across all competitions for AC Milan, scoring eight goals and supplying two assists in return.
The 22-year-old has long been touted as one of Portugal’s most promising young talents.
Andre Silva has represented Portugal at Under-16, Under-17, Under-18, Under-19, Under-20 and Under-21 level, winning 70 caps and scoring 31 goals, before making his senior international debut in September 2016. As a member of Portugal national football team, Andre Silva won 18 caps and he scored 11 goals.
Adding a striker remains Sevilla’s top priority this summer and Vincenzo Montella will have drafted a shortlist of a number of possible targets he could approach in the coming months.
The report claims that Sevilla manager has extensively scouted Andre Silva and is considering a move for the striker.
According to Football Espana (via Birmingham Mail) , “Sevilla are keeping tabs on out-of-favour Milan striker Andre Silva as a summer exit looks increasingly certain. The 22-year-old striker was one of the key arrivals in the Rossoneri’s €200m transfer spree last summer, arriving from FC Porto for €38m plus bonuses. A report in the Birmingham Mail states Wolverhampton Wanderers will attempt to make him their star arrival should they achieve promotion to England’s top flight.”
Andre Silva is also being watched by Monaco.
