Arsenal target Andre Silva having medical ahead of move to AC Milan
The Rossoneri agreed a deal thought to be worth around £33million with Porto for the 21-year-old’s signature and he will wear the famous No.10 shirt- According to The Sun
Silva had been a target for Arsenal earlier in the season.
But it is Milan who have got their man — and the owners come through on their promise of bringing in a top player.
Former chief Silvio Berlusconi sold the club to Chinese company Rossoneri Sport Investment Lux after 30 years in charge for £628m.
And they immediately signalled their intent by bringing in a Silva for a club record fee.
Manuel Rui Costa has been Milan’s record signing when he arrived from Fiorentina for £30m in 2001.
But Silva’s fee will eclipse that when the deal is complete.
He arrived at the Milanello training ground for his medical today.
But, as soon as the contract is signed, he will just off to Russia to join the rest of the Portugal team for the Confederations Cup.
A sixth-place finish last season saw Vincenzo Montella’s side qualify for the Europa League and it means European football for the first time since 2014.
Silva becomes the Serie A giants’ third major signing of the summer following Mateo Musacchio, Frank Kessie and Ricardo Rodriguez.
