Italian Serie A giant AC Milan could cash in on Andre Silva just 12 months after signing him, as per reports.
The Serie A giant signed the Portuguese striker in the summer for £33million. According to the Daily Star, Milan may end up selling him should they be unable to secure UEFA Champions League football this term.
They claim that the Gunners will be on hand to secure the signature of the 21-year-old should AC Milan require to cash in on him. With Chilean Alexis Sanchez set to depart the club, the North Londoners will need a striker to replace him. However, there is a lot of work to be done for this move to happen.
AC Milan’s transfer was funded by their new owners and allowed them to bring in players such as Silva without UEFA Champions League football in the initial time. While the start of their League season suggests they are a long way off UEFA Champions League qualification, there are still many matches remaining to be played.
The publication claim Silva was a primary target for Wenger in the summer. However, the fact that the club signed Alexandre Lacazette for more huge sum suggests otherwise.
Silva netted 24 goals in 58 matches for FC Porto before joining AC Milan Milan, where’s netted six goals in 10 matches.
