The AC Milan hitman would be a superb addition for Tottenham Hotspur.
Tottenham quite clearly need to sign another striker this summer, if they are to challenge for major honours on all fronts next season.
Spurs have sold Vincent Janssen to Mexican side Monterrey and released Fernando Llorente.
Harry Kane is Tottenham’s clear number one striker, but the Englishman needs more competition and/or top quality cover.
The problem is, Spurs might not be able to attract a truly elite forward to north London, because they will obviously not be happy playing second-fiddle to Kane.
With this in mind, Mauricio Pochettino should go for a ‘tier two’ type striker, and AC Milan’s Andre Silva could be ideal for them.
And here’s why Tottenham should move for the Portuguese front-man…
At just 23, Silva has at least a decade left ahead of him at the very highest level, and he would surely excel under the guidance of Pochettino.
The Argentine usually prefers to sign young players with great potential, and the AC Milan hitman certainly fits into that category.
The 33-capped Portugal international has great technique, and his ability to receive the ball in tight spaces could be a real asset for Spurs.
He also has wonderful vision – something that would enable him to bring Tottenham’s gifted attack-minded players into the game.
Perfect Kane back-up
Silva would be under no illusions. He will know that he will be second choice behind Kane, but if given the opportunity to start in the domestic cup competitions, along with regular substitute appearances in the Premier League and Champions League, he might just be tempted to join Spurs.
And for the reported fee of just £27.5 million, he could be an absolute bargain for Tottenham.
