Wolves: Portuguese source makes promising Silva transfer claim

Wolves: Portuguese source makes promising Silva transfer claim -Premier League News

Wolves could sign exciting attacker Rafa Silva in the summer window as ‘concrete’ news emerges.

The Lowdown: Silva shines in his homeland

The 28-year-old is enjoying a magnificent season for the Portuguese giants, proving to be a relentless source of end product in the Primeira Liga.

Silva has eight goals and 15 assists in the competition in 2021/22, also notching one apiece in the Champions League, with Benfica eventually knocked out by Liverpool.

Grabbing 18 assists in total across all cups and leagues, he’s certainly impressing.

Although the winger’s contract doesn’t expire until 2024, it could be that a big-money offer turns Benfica’s head this summer, with Jeunesfooteux recently claiming he could cost as much as €50 million (£42m).

The Latest: Wolves offer on the cards…

According to A Bola [via Sport Witness], Wolves are the ‘most concrete’ club when it comes to wanting to sign Silva, in what is an exciting update.

A ‘concrete proposal’ could even arrive in the near future, further suggesting that there is genuine interest in him from the Molineux outfit, and by extension their manager Bruno Lage.

The Verdict: Statement signing

Silva would feel like a significant signing by Wolves, at a time when Lage is looking to turn his team into both a domestic and European force.

The Benfica hero’s aforementioned numbers this season prove how relentless he is in the final third, while 25 caps for an extremely gifted Portugal squad is no mean feat either.

He’s also been described as one of Portugal’s array of ‘phenomenal attacking talent’ in the past (Alex Goncalves, Portuguese football journalist and founder of TugaScout) – a tag he’s still living up to now going by his electric form.

Wolves haven’t always been the Premier League‘s most entertaining side this season, scoring just 33 goals in 32 matches, but Silva could provide the ammunition that makes them more of an attacking threat.
