Wolves 'In Pole Position' To Sign Andre Silva For €30 Million

Wolverhampton Wanderers are the favourites to land AC Milan and Portugal striker Andre Silva in a €30 million summer move.

Due to the involvement of the Portuguese super agent Jorge Mendes, who represents several of the world's biggest players, Wolves have been able to pull off some truly incredible signings in recent times: Joao Moutinho, Rui Patricio, Diogo Jota, Ruben Neves and Raul Jimenez to name just a few.

And after being linked on about 34 different occasions, it's looking likely that Silva will be the next big name to join Nuno Espirito Santo's revolution as they gear up for next season's European adventure.

Gazzetta dello Sport say Wolves are in 'pole position' to sign the 23-year old, who Milan want to get rid off in a bid to balance the books.

A €38 million signing from Porto, Silva never got going at Milan and only scored two goals in Serie A following his big-money move.

He was sent on loan to Sevilla last season and found the net nine times but soon fell out of favour, with the Andalusian outfit turned down the chance to sign him permanently despite having the option to do so.

Monaco, Valencia and Roma are all believed to be in the chase but it's Wolves who are said to be leading the race for Silva, who would cost €30 million and provide back-up to Raul Jimenez.

Silva already has history with Espirito Santo too. He was Silva's coach for his best goalscoring season of his career, notching 21 goals in all competitions in 2016/17.

Will Silva finally sign for Wolves or is it too good to be true?
