Wolverhampton Wanderers have reportedly been offered AC Milan striker Andre Silva ahead of the summer window despite only just completing a permanent deal for Raul Jimenez – and Wolves fans have reacted on Twitter.
Silva, 23, joined Spanish side Sevilla on a season-long loan spell from Milan last summer. He has been rather mediocre, scoring 11 goals in 40 league and cup outings.
He began the season in excellent form, scoring nine goals. But he has only found the back of the net twice since the turn of the year, scoring in a La Liga clash against Levante in January – which was his last goal.
Italian outlet CalcioMercato have claimed Wolves, AS Monaco and Valencia are all interested, and have been offered the 33-time Portugal international. All three clubs have strong connections with super agent Jorge Mendes.
Wolves have been in excellent form, partnering Jimenez with Diogo Jota up front in a rare example of a club using a two-man strike force. Normally, managers opt to use one striker in the modern game.
But Wolves have need options up front as Nuno Espirito Santo likes to play with two strikers and that could be the reason why many supporters have urged their club to bring Silva to Molineux as competition.
Would still take him, better than Adama/Cav/Costa. Gives us rotation options

I could see us selling Costa and bringing in Silva. Would be a good source of goals and if Jimmy or Jota aren't scoring next season, he could bring him in to add some goals.

Would have him and Raul up top with Jota just behind and drop Moutinho back in a 2 with neves, leaving out donk

Would be useful as a top quality option bearing in mind that we have such a small squad imo ??⬛

I'd take him in a heartbeat. It would make the squad stronger, especially if we qualify for Europe.
