According to a report in Estadio Deportivo, super-agent Jorge Mendes is currently working on Andre Silva’s move to the Premier League with Wolverhampton Wanderers no doubt a potential destination.

The Spanish report claims Sevilla are interested in signing the Portugal international on loan, but their chances appear slim as the player is currently in negotiations over a move to the Premier League.

Jorge Mendes is said to be working on his behalf to facilitate a deal to England, and it has been reported elsewhere that Wolves are keen on bringing the player to Molineux ahead of the transfer deadline.

 

Tuttomercatoweb reported last week how Wolves were hot on the tail of Silva, a player who AC Milan are keen to offload despite them splashing out a whopping 38 million euros (£34 million) to sign him last summer.

The 22-year-old struggled to get going in Italy following his big-money move from Porto, scoring just two goals in 24 league appearances as the Italian giants fell short of their season objectives.

Wolves have benefitted greatly from their link-up with Mendes as they romped to the Championship title last season with a helping hand from several top-quality loan players.

This summer the west Midlands club have spent big in bringing in the likes of Adama Traore, Willy Boly, Diogo Jota, Joao Moutinho and Rui Patricio, yet Silva could end up being their record signing if they are the club in question.

It’s likely Milan will want to recoup most of the fee they splashed out on the Portuguese ace, and the Premier League newcomers haven’t exactly been shy in opening their cheque book this summer.

With the transfer deadline less than 24 hours away, a deal for Silva would top off a productive summer for Wolves and increase their chances of Premier League survival this coming season.
