Bild: Eintracht Frankfurt want to wrap up deal for €38m Milan forward before Euro 2020

By Oliver Fisher -

Eintracht Frankfurt have already held talks with AC Milan over Andre Silva, a report claims, and they want to conclude things quickly.

The Portugal international joined Milan during the summer transfer campaign of 2017, arriving in a big money €38m move from Porto, but never really hit the ground running during his time at San Siro.

After being loaned out to Sevilla last season, he then joined Eintracht Frankfurt on a two-year loan on deadline day during the last summer window, with Ante Rebic coming the other way as part of it.

During his time in Germany so far, the 24-year-old has seven goals in 22 appearances in all competitions, and according to what Bild are reporting he has done enough to make Eintracht think about making his deal permanent already.

The German outlet claims that they have already held initial talks with Milan about inserting a fee to make his stay on the river Main extend beyond 2021.

In addition, they want to tie up a deal quickly over fears his valuation could rise drastically if he performs well for Portugal at the European Championships this summer.

Sports Director Fredi Bobic says: “We have always said that players who come from a different league need time. This was also the case with Sébastien Haller (now at West Ham).

“With André you notice that there is a jump. He feels a lot fresher, he is more stable.”
