AC Milan will likely entertain bids for Andre Silva in the summer transfer window with the big-money signing of last summer failing to deliver on a goal-scoring front for the former Italian champions – via Sky Sports Italy.

Silva’s agent just so happens to be Jorge Mendes – who has direct links to Wolverhampton Wanderers, which has led to speculation that newly-promoted club are among the leading frontrunners for the striker. Monaco are also mentioned by Sky Sports Italy as being interested in the 22-year-old who arrived in Milan for £33m last summer.

Andre Silva’s record for AC Milan this season doesn’t make for great reading in Serie A, two goals in 23 games, however his Europa League record of six in 10 offers some reprieve for fans rueing over what has been an expensive goal to game ratio from the Portuguese international.

AC Milan’s manager Gennaro Gattuso’s patience has apparently been exhausted and continues to favour players like Nikola Kalinić and Patrick Cutrone – with Silva not even appearing from the substitutes bench in a number of recent matches, including in the recent Italian Cup final defeat to Juventus.

Sky Sports Italy state that there will be some kind of coming together between agent Jorge Mendes and AC Milan sporting director Massimiliano Mirabelli to put together a solution that will be pleasing to all parties.
