GdS: Andre Silva subject of €25million bid from LaLiga side

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have an offer on the table from LaLiga side Espanyol for striker Andre Silva, according to the latest reports.

The Portugal international continues to be strongly linked with a summer exit as coach Marco Giampaolo has seemingly deemed him surplus to requirements at the club.

In the meantime, the Rossoneri are looking to raise cash in order to sign a forward more suited to his 4-3-1-2 system, with Angel Correa the primary target at this stage.

Silva was close to moving to Monaco in a €30m deal, but it ended up falling through due to financial disagreements.

A recent report from La Gazzetta dello Sport stated that despite agent Jorge Mendes struggling to find new clients, Silva is still ‘destined’ to leave Milan before the window shuts.

The same paper now offer an update (via Football Italia) as they state that LaLiga side Espanyol have made an approach for the 23-year-old and have placed a €25m offer.

Silva cost €38m when he signed from Porto two years ago, however he has struggled at club level since with Milan and Sevilla, meaning it is unlikely that fee can be recouped.

The report does not mention whether the offer was accepted or rejected.
