Wolves: Steve Madeley drops verdict on potential Fabio Silva return

Wolves: Steve Madeley drops verdict on potential Fabio Silva return - Premier League News

The Athletic’s Wolverhampton Wanderers correspondent Steve Madeley has delivered his verdict on a potential January return to Molineux for Fabio Silva.

The Lowdown: Fosun weighing up options

The Premier League club sent the 20-year-old out on loan to Anderlecht over the summer to increase his game-time and gain some valuable experience where he’s enjoyed an impressive start to the season.

However, The Athletic have recently reported that the Old Gold are considering entering negotiations with the Belgian giants to terminate the second half of the agreement, with new manager Julen Lopetegui being the one set to make the final decision on the player’s immediate future.

The Latest: Madeley’s verdict

Taking to Twitter, Madeley responded to a supporter who suggested that Wolves keeping Silva where he is right now would be the best option.

The journalist replied: “I think leaving him at Anderlecht is by far the likeliest outcome. Wolves sent him out for a year for good reasons.

“But if they can’t get the player they want for the price they want from elsewhere and can do a deal with Anderlecht, who knows?”

The Verdict: Don’t bring him back

Wolves have definitely been lacking for goals and for available centre-forward options, hence why they are second from bottom of the Premier League.

However, Silva’s needs are being met perfectly right now, so his parent club shouldn’t stop his development in Brussels.

Should Wolves bring back Silva?





Labelled ‘sharp’ by Josh Bunting, the Portuguese gem already has nine goals and three assists to his name in 26 outings for Anderlecht across all competitions and is averaging 2.7 shots per league game, level with Diego Costa, who is Wolves’ best performer in this regard.

The Midlands club should instead dip into the transfer market and await Silva’s return to Molineux next summer, when he will likely be ready to truly challenge for a place in Lopetegui’s starting XI.
