Valencia want Milan striker Andre Silva

Valencia want Milan striker Andre Silva to replace the outgoing Rodrigo Moreno at the club next season, say Marca.

Spain international Rodrigo is set to join Atletico Madrid in a €60m deal and Silva, who spent last season on loan at Sevilla, is Los Che’s ideal replacement.

The Portugal international had not started a match for the Andalusian club since March and left the club in May with he and Sevilla at odds over a knee injury.

The 23-year-old got his career at Los Rojiblancos off to a flying start with seven goals in his first seven La Liga appearances, but added just two more in the league in 20 showings since.

The Andalusian club signed the Portugal international on a season-long loan deal from the Milanese giants last summer for an initial €4m and with a €39m option to sign him permanently, which they did not take up.

Monaco and Leicester City had also been linked to the striker, who appeared to have little future at the Milanese giants, whom he joined from Porto in 2017.
