Arsenal face competition to sign Portuguese forward this summer – report
Arsenal and Wolves are among the clubs interested in signing Andre Silva from AC Milan, say reports
Arsenal are set to face competition from Wolves for the signature of AC Milan forward Andre Silva this summer, according to reports in the British media.
The Daily Mirror is claiming that Wolves are planning an “audacious” bid to try and land the Portugese forward, who has failed to live up to expectations at AC Milan.
The same report says that Wolves are keen on a move to try and sign the 22-year-old, but will come up against competition from the Gunners.
Silva faced Arsenal in the second leg of their Europa League last 16 tie at The Emirates on Thursday night.
The same article says that Arsenal, Monaco and Valencia are all interested in signing the attacker along with Wolves this summer.
Silva has scored seven goals in all competitions for AC Milan so far this season under Gennaro Gattuso.
Meanwhile, Arsenal have the weekend off and will not return to Premier League action until after the forthcoming international break, when they take on Stoke City at The Emirates.
The Gunners, who are currently in sixth place in the Premier League table, have been pitted against CSKA Moscow in the quarter-finals of the Europa League after the draw was made on Friday.
