Crystal Palace and Arsenal are both keen on signing RB Leipzig forward Andre Silva, according to Calciomercato.com.
The Lowdown: Silva’s first season at Leipzig
Is Edouard in your strongest Palace XI?
The Portugal star has also registered eight assists this season, and it seems as if his impressive form have caught the eye of Eagles officials.
The Latest: Palace links
Calciomercato.com shared a short story on Tuesday evening regarding Silva.
They claimed that both Palace and Arsenal, along with Atletico Madrid, are ‘interested’ in a move for the striker following his impressive campaign.
The Verdict: Ambitious
Palace backer John Textor is reportedly ready to splash the cash this summer to build on a good campaign under boss Patrick Vieira, and a potential move for Silva is indeed an ambitious one.
He is valued at a whopping £34.2m and has regularly played European football throughout his career, something Palace cannot currently offer, while the fact he has only just moved to Leipzig last year means they’d be unlikely to sell on the cheap.
So, with the likes of Arsenal and Atletico, who look set to secure European football for next season, also keen, it would be a big ask for Palace to get a deal over the line in the summer.
