Wolves have reportedly now held talks over the possibility of signing Rafa Silva in the summer.
The Lowdown: Standout season
There is no doubt that Silva is having a standout season at Benfica, racking up no fewer than 12 goals and a further 17 assists in total over all competitions so far (Transfermarkt).
Should Wolves sign Silva?
He recently scored an ‘extraordinary‘ solo goal that has since gone viral, demonstrating his elite dribbling ability, and has hardly missed a game in a campaign that has seen Benfica reach the quarter-final stage of the UEFA Champions League.
The Latest: Talks held
The move would cost in the region of €20-30m (£16.6-24.9m), with bonuses related to performance included in any deal.
Francisco Trincao’s future at Molineux is uncertain, and so he may not stay after his loan spell ends, thus paving the way for Silva to come in.
The Verdict: No-brainer
Given his record in terms of goals and assists this season, and Lage’s relationship with him, it is surely a no-brainer for the Wanderers to sign Silva.
Called ‘fantastic‘ by Lage when they were acquainted, Silva is now in his prime at 28 years of age, and so WWFC must look to jump on his signature straight away.
