Swansea to launch shock bid for Andre Silva
In the past few days Swansea have been linked with a number of big name players, many of whom have come as a surprise given that the club are rock bottom of the Premier League table after 23 games. What isn’t surprising however is the fact that the Swans are in the market for a goal scorer, having scored a feeble 14 times so far this season.
The latest name at the top of Carlos Carvalhal’s shopping list is that of AC Milan striker Andre Silva, according to the Sun, and the Swans will likely have to shell out close to £32m to secure his services. Silva signed for Milan in the summer but has failed to impress this season, mainly due to the fact that he is yet to score in the Serie A despite making 12 appearances.
Silva has proved himself to be a prolific scorer in the past however, and netted 16 times in the 2016/17 season for Porto. Whether or not he will succeed in the Premier League is a different question however, but Swansea do need to make a statement in this transfer window.
