Arsenal remains interested in Porto striker Andre Silva, according to reports.
Arsene Wenger seems very interested in the Portuguese star and he has been keeping tabs on him, reports suggest Arsenal scouts were present when Silva played in their Champions League encounter with Juventus on Wednesday night as the Gunners consider making a bid.
Although a move to the Emirates didn’t happen in January, it appears Wenger is still keeping an eye on the striker for a possible move in summer.
.At the beginning of the January transfer window, it was claimed that Wenger wanted to improve his forward line and that Silva was one of his top targets but it happened there was no truth in that.
Silva was linked with a January move to the Emirates, a report which Wenger quickly denied but the continuous scouting of the striker suggests Arsenal are actually interested in them.
It’s added that the Portuguese starlet has a €60m release clause in his contract with Porto, and so despite the fact that he’s regarded as one of the top young players in Europe, he won’t be cheap for any interested party hoping to prise him away.
He is a very talented player with the potential of becoming one of the best in his position; perhaps Wenger is keeping tabs on him ahead of a potential summer move.
