A number of Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to give their thoughts on the report linking the Gunners with Andre Silva.
According to Calciomercato, Mikel Arteta has earmarked the Eintracht Frankfurt striker as a potential replacement for Alexandre Lacazette this summer.
Lacazette has less than 18 months remaining on his Arsenal contract, so speculation over his future is never far away.
The Mirror reported last week that Ligue 1 side Monaco are watching developments closely to see if the Frenchman could be allowed to leave the Emirates in the summer.
In case Lacazette leaves, then Calciomercato reckons Arsenal will look to Silva as an alternative.
The Portugal international signed permanently for Eintracht Frankfurt from AC Milan last September and has been superb for the Bundesliga side.
In just 21 league appearances, Silva has registered an impressive 19 goals and three assists, as well as one goal and two assists in the German Cup.
The 25-year-old, whose contract runs until 2023, recently told O Jogo he believes his transfer value stands at 30m Euro (£26million).
What have Arsenal fans made of the prospect of Silva joining Arsenal? Below is some of the social media reaction:

Great back up to Auba and offers something different to Auba and lacazette

Andre Silva possesses good attributes, probably most attributes of a perfect CF. But I will go for Edouard if given a choice. Quality wise I believe Edouard is better then Andre

Absolutely not he’s way above average

Andre Silva would actually be a great signing. He’s the aerial presence that is so desperately needed

He’s very balanced in his finishing from what I know. For Frankfurt, hes been scoring left, right and headers, however just over a quarter of his goals this season have been penalties.
