Wolves Eye Up Yet Another Big Summer Transfer
In the past three summer transfer windows Wolves keep outdoing themselves with transfers that we'd have never expected to happen and the newly promoted Premier League side could be at it again.
Back in 2010 Wolves broke their transfer record fee by signing Steven Fletcher from Burnley for £6.5 million. The striker's 10 goals in his first season helped them stay in the Premier League but his 12 goals the season after weren't enough to keep them up.
It took Wolves six seasons till the got back into the Premier League, after winning the Championship last season, and it took them six years from Fletcher to break their transfer record too.
Two summers ago they signed Ivan Cavaleiro from Monaco for £7 million, quite the coup, but they topped that the next January with a £13 million move for Benfica's Helder Costa. Then last summer thy got the biggest signing of all, shocking everyone with the incredible £15.8 million move for Ruben Neves and finally won promotion back to the top tier.
This summer they are yet to add a record transfer fee to their side but have signed Rui Patricio and Joao Moutinho but they could yet add another big name.
Speaking to Milan TV, AC Milan sporting director, Massimo Mirabelli, confirmed that the English club had made an offer for striker Andre Silva, saying:
"We spent a lot of money for 22 year-old Andre Silva.

"[Gennaro] Gattuso will test him during the training camp and then we will decide. If it does not work, we will sell or loan him.
"But clubs must remember that we paid €38 million for him.
"There are two clubs currently in contact with us: Wolverhampton and Galatasaray. Both show interest in Andre Silva, but we have asked for time."
Silva was only signed by the Rossoneri from Porto last summer and played 24 times in the league for Milan, but only scored twice as he mostly played as a substitute in the league.
Wolves were linked with a move for him as early as January, what do you expect he is a Portuguese player who has Jorge Mendes as his agent, but there was no move in the end.
This time though it seems that Wolves are definitely in for him and it could depend how he plays in Milan's pre season tour and if they feel they can get enough money for him and a replacement.
