André Silva has scored 11 goals in all competitions for Sevilla this season and the La Liga side have the option to make his loan move permanent.
According to Calciomercato, the La Liga side are unwilling to pay in excess of €30m for the Portugal international, while his parent club AC Milan are demanding €38m to sanction the transfer.
The 23-year-old is represented by Jorge Mendes and the agent wants to take his client to a club where he will have a key role in the starting XI.
The Italian website explains there are two alternatives and one of them is Wolverhampton Wanderers as it’s claimed the Premier League club ‘had spoken insistently’.
Mendes has close ties with Wolves and has already taken a few of his clients to the Molineux Stadium in the past few seasons.
Silva, as cited by the report, does not see the possibility of signing for Wolves with good eyes as he wants to join a club which is ambitious to fight for their goals.
Both Sevilla and Wolves are 7th in their respective league tables… and the English side have a cup semi-final on the way.
AS Monaco, 16th in Ligue 1, is pushed forward as another alternative and there have been talks with the Ligue 1 outfit for Silva. Calciomercato also claims the interest from the French club in the player is concrete.
With Sevilla unwilling to meet AC Milan’s asking price, Mendes will have to find a new club for Silva.
The only way Wolves will be seriously keen is if something goes wrong with the Raul Jimenez deal. And even then, they may not be so keen given Silva has only scored two goals in 18 appearances in 2019.
Wolves seem to be continually dragged into this story, just so they can be told they’re not good enough… and as it stands right now, perhaps the better story would be the tables turning.
