Wolves have made an approached AC Milan with an enquiry about striker Andre Silva, according to Milan TV.

The Serie A club’s sporting director Massimo Mirabelli has confiemd on the clubs official TV channel that Wolves and Galatasaray have both enquired to the availability of the Portuguese striker.

“We spent a lot of money for 22-year-old Andre Silva,” Mirabelli told Milan TV, as quoted and translated by the Mirror.

“[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 €38million 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.”

The Italian side signed Silva from Porto last season for a reported £34million and is on a contract of £37,000-per-week (Sportac).

The 22-year-old hasn’t been able to replicate the goalscoring exploits in Italy that he achieved with his former club, scoring 21 goals in 44 appearances in the 2016/17 season.

Good signing for Wolves?

This would be the best signing of the lot for Wolves.

The signing of Andre Silva would be the cherry on top of what has already been a summer of transfer business for the Midlands club.

The 22-year-old would score a bucket load of goals in the and is at an age where he is only going to improve year-on-year, so it’s also a good investment.

If it’s possible, they need to make it happen.

Likely to happen?

Judging by the AC Milan sporting director’s comments, it could possibly happen but Espirito Santo will have to wait a few weeks to know for sure.

The newly-promoted side certainly have the financial backing to be able to pull off a transfer of this magnitude, both the fee and the wages shouldn’t be a problem.

It’s just about trying to assure the player that Molineux is the right place for him at this stage in his career.

Living in the is going to be a lot different than Milan, so it might take some convincing.
