Real Madrid are set to wreck Arsenal transfer plans with their interest in Wenger’s top target.
The player in question here is FC Porto’s striker Andre Silva who our scouts have constantly watched this season. Wenger is a big admirer of the forward and is said to be exploring the possibility of bringing him to the Emirates.
But according to the Daily Star, Arsenal have been told to forget about signing the striker this month.
Spanish giants Real Madrid have sent scouts to watch the striker this season and they are expected to make a move for the striker in the summer.
Madrid are currently serving their one window transfer ban and Porto wants to wait till next summer when Zidane’s men can sign players in other to drive Silva’s price up.
The report claims Porto believe they can get around £50m for the striker if they resist selling the player this winter.
Madrid’s interest in the striker is a set back for Arsenal as it would make negotiations with Porto a bit tougher.
Silva is being linked with a move to the Emirates as a long term replacement for Sanchez whose future is in doubt.
It would be a big blow to miss out on Silva and then lose Sanchez.
