Report: Arsenal looking at £26m striker who’s been compared to Robert Lewandowski

Arsenal have reportedly identified Andre Silva as a potential replacement for Gunners striker Alexandre Lacazette, according to Calciomercato.

Lacazette has less than 18 months remaining on his current contract and is often the subject of transfer speculation.

The Mirror reported last week that Ligue 1 side Monaco are watching developments closely to see if Lacazette 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).

TBR View:

Silva may have not had the best time at Milan but he’s been truly sensational at Frankfurt, so it’s little surprise to see him linked with a move away so soon after joining.

A great finisher and superb header of the ball whose manager, Adi Hutter, has compared him to Robert Lewandowski, he certainly looks like a good shout for Arsenal in case Lacazette leaves.
