According to the latest reports from Italian newspage CittaCeleste, super agent Jorge Mendes has offered Wolves target Andre Silva to Serie A outfit Lazio.

Reports earlier this week from TuttoMercatoWeb stated that due to AC Milan’s purchase of Gonzalo Higuain from Juventus, on loan with an obligation to buy, that they now need to offload some of their other forwards; such as the likes of Nikola Kalinic, Carlos Bacca and Andre Silva.

 

It had been suggested, in the same reports from TMW, that Wolverhampton Wanderers were hot on the tail of Silva, due to their relationship with Jorge Mendes.

However, as it appears the Midlands side have failed to make a move, Mendes is seeking an alternative path for his client.

CittaCeleste suggest that the deal would be a loan to Lazio, with a potential option-to-buy. It is likely that AC Milan would rather have an obligation to buy included – given the costs anticipated for Higuain next summer.

If Wolves are interested, they must now act fast, before Lazio strike first and secure the services of the Portuguese forward.
