Reports from the Daily Mail suggest Arsenal are reportedly interested in signing AC Milan star Andre Silva in the January transfer window.

There have been growing speculation regarding the striker’s future at the San Siro suggests he could be heading for the Italian club’s exit which has put Arsenal on red alert for his signature.

Silva signed a five-year contract with the Rossoneri when he joined the club in June, but French newspaper Le 10 Sport reported Arsenal are ready to revive their summer interest in his services (h/t Metro).

According to the report, the growing uncertainty around the future of Arsenal stars Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil—whose contracts expire in the summer—has led the Gunners to investigate new attacking recruits.

However, Milan may be in no rush to sell their striker despite his struggles in Serie A this season as new manager Gennaro Gattuso spoke positively of Silva in his first press conference as boss:

“He’s a very talented player. I think he was an excellent buy and has done really well in the Europa League and is highly sought after, he has shown that.

“He plays for the team and that is one of his strengths. He makes those runs from deep, cuts inside and I think we have to try to get the best out of him and make sure he plays as much as possible for the team, rather than as an individual.”


He signed for AC Milan for £32million last summer.
