Silva set for Sevilla medical

Milan and Portugal striker Andre Silva is expected to undergo a medical with Sevilla on Saturday.

Silva was left out of Milan’s squad for their Bernabeu Trophy clash with Real Madrid, and Sky Sport Italia, Marca and AS all assure a deal to take him to Sevilla is done.

The Portugal international was picked up from outside the Rossoneri’s training ground in a black van and flew out from Milan on Friday evening.

He looks set to join the Andalusians on a season-long loan worth €5m, with a €30m option to buy next summer.

Silva was one of Milan’s big-money signings a year ago, arriving from Porto for €38m plus bonuses, but scored just two Serie A goals in 2017-18.

However, he was considered one of Europe’s most promising young forwards before that, netting 24 times in 58 appearances for the Portuguese champions.

Sevilla’s move for the 22-year-old comes after they missed out on Michy Batshuayi, who has joined Valencia.
