Arsenal-linked Andre Silva has broken his silence after being heavily linked with a big-money move to Molineux this summer.
Silva, 22, arrived at Serie A giants AC Milan from Porto last summer, though, despite an eye-catching record in the Primeira Liga and at international level, Silva has initially struggled for starts at Milan and has scored eight goals in all competitions to date.
The striker arrived in Italy for a fee of around €38m – a hefty price for a young player.
It’s sparked speculation that Silva might leave Milan almost as soon as he arrived, with Arsenal and other clubs in England said to be interested in his services.
The man himself, though, doesn’t appear to have much interest in giving up at the Rossoneri just yet.
He believes he is merely acclimatising to a switch in country, but that the price tag around his neck is not something that he feels the pressure of.
“My thoughts have always been to stay here and do my job at Milan, here in Italy everything changed for me, it was the first time I came out of my country [Portugal],” Silva told Tuttomercato .
“Football is football, the same everywhere, but everything is always done to make the best possible, I do not think that the high cost of the transfer has weighed on me.
“The real problem is what I have already said, that changing country has changed everything.”
