Andre Silva signing would show Wolves mean business in top-flight

As reported by The Daily Mirror, Wolverhampton Wanderers are planning an ambitious move to bring AC Milan striker Andre Silva to the club this summer, should they gain promotion from the English Championship.

What’s the story?

Currently ten points clear of third-placed Aston Villa, with the buffer of Cardiff City between them, and just nine games remaining, Wolves are almost guaranteed to be playing top-flight football next season.

As such, fans are already dreaming of the summer transfer window and the prospect of high quality players arriving to help them survive their first season after promotion.

One player that would be sure to excite supporters is AC Milan striker Andre Silva, who has struggled to find a consistent place in Gennaro Gattuso’s first team in his debut season.

The Mirror report that Wolves are to attempt to land him should they secure promotion, rivalling Arsenal for his signature and hoping to reunite him with boss Nuno Espirito Santo, who previously worked with the player at Porto.

The quality Wolves need?

While Silva may be struggling in week-to-week Serie A action this season, his eight goals in 14 UEFA Europa League appearances demonstrate he’s a player who would likely improve the Wolves attack.

That evidence is backed up by an excellent season for Porto last term when he scored 21 goals in all competitions for Porto, including four in the UEFA Champions League.

His international record is prolific too, with 11 goals in 18 caps for Portugal, all but one of which have come in competitive action.

Just 22-years-old, he holds significant potential and reunited with Nuno could be a sensation in the Premier League next term.

Can Wolves show the ambition to actually land him this summer?
