Wolverhampton Wanderers' Portuguese head coach Nuno Espirito Santo watches from the touchline during the English Premier League football match between Liverpool and Wolverhampton Wanderers...

Premier League duo Wolverhampton Wanderers and Leicester City have both been linked with AC Milan's Sevilla loanee Andre Silva.

Wolverhampton Wanderers or Leicester City will have to accept a swap deal if they want to sign Andre Silva, according to Calciomercato.

The Portuguese number nine could be on the move for the third summer in succession, with El Desmarque reporting earlier in May that Sevilla will reject the chance to sign the AC Milan forward at the end of a disappointing loan spell in La Liga.


The report claims that Wolves are willing to pay £30 million for a player they have been linked with since the start of 2018 while Leicester also want to bring Silva to the Premier League, probably to take the pressure off Jamie Vardy.

But, according to Calciomercato, Milan will demand a player in exchange from any club who wants to sign the 23-year-old goal poacher.

Silva’s agent Jorge Mendes, who famously has excellent connections at Wolves, is trying to find his client a new club. But Milan are driving a hard bargain with Wolves or Leicester likely to be forced to sacrifice one of their key players to make the deal happen.

With Wolves and Leicester’s squads full of potential and quality, there will surely be a few who catch Milan’s eye.
