Without a club willing to pay for André Silva’s services, the rumour sending the striker to Wolverhampton Wanderers continues to trundle along nicely in Italy.

On Tuesday, Sky Sport Italia, relayed by Calciomercato, reported Jorge Mendes is hard at work trying to find his young goalscorer an exit route from Milan, and Wolves are still in his plans.

Alongside Valencia, the newly promoted Premier League side are described as one of the few options capable of paying Milan enough so that they don’t make a loss on the 22-year-old, on whom they spent £34.2m last year.

Wolves would also allow Silva to continue his career at the top level, rather than end up on loan somewhere, while the Serie A side sweat about trying to minimise their losses.

The young forward is said to be ‘ready to pack his bags’, suggesting he’d be open to the option of moving to Wolverhampton, but you’d forgive him if he preferred Valencia and their ability to offer him Champions League football after finishing fourth in La Liga last year.

Having asked Mendes to find him a new club, the super agent is trying to do just that, but until Silva either signs for Wolves or elsewhere, we fear this story isn’t going to go away anytime soon.
