Leicester’s main priority in the summer transfer market is likely to be securing Youri Tielemans on a permanent deal. Brendan Rodgers has admitted the club will do everything they can to sign him.
However, fans of the Foxes have been debating another possible transfer, reacting to a tweet talking about Portuguese striker Andre Silva who has spent the season with Sevilla.
The reaction to a potential transfer was split positively and negatively as the fan base appeared divided over Silva. The 23-year-old has attracted interest from the Midlands side per El Desmarque.
One fan claimed that he was overhyped and overrated whilst another joked about the possibility of signing a player with a similar name to Adrien Silva.
A further supporter looked at things more analytically, hinting that Salomon Rondon would be a better option in the transfer market.
The Portugal international, who has been capped 33 times, has scored on nine occasions in 27 La Liga games this term for Sevilla.
He’s still contracted to AC Milan but has never really hit the ground running in Italy and as a result, could now be looking elsewhere for a permanent move.
Here’s the best of the reaction.
Would be a good signing, tbf.
