Wolves: Wanderers hold Rafa Silva talks

Wolves: Wanderers hold Rafa Silva talks -Wolves News

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?

Yes

Yes

No

No

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

As per A Bola (via Sport Witness), the Midlands club have now been making ‘exploratory contacts’ over Silva’s potential signing, motivated by Bruno Lage’s ‘knowledge’ of the player.

Who scored Wolves' first Premier League goal of the season, barring own goals?

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.

Of course, the Portuguese boss managed him at Benfica, where he managed to score 23 times and produce eight assists (Transfermarkt), helping him win the league title in the 2018/19 term.

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.
