As new manager Marco Silva starts looking for signings for Hull City, the first names start being speculated, especially in the Portuguese press.

First it was the left-back Evandro from Porto who was said to be a target. Now, according to O Jogo, the Portuguese boss would be interested in the former PSG right-back Gregory van der Wiel.

The Dutchman, who arrived at Fenerbahce on a free transfer last summer, hasn’t been much used by the Turkish side and would not be happy with that fact. He’s also recently been sent to train with the reserves, so a transfer seems quite possible.

O Jogo claims that the first contacts have been made last week, as the Tigers are in a hurry to improve their squad.

CapturarIt’s still not mentioned how much Hull would have to spend to sign the 28-year-old. Portuguese side Sporting are the other club who’s said to be interested in the player.

Marco Silva is making his Premier League debut this weekend against Bournemouth. He’s been in charge of Hull for two cup games so far, a win against Swansea City and a loss against Manchester United.
