Per Sky Italia, Sevilla has stepped up in their pursuit of AC Milan striker André Silva, tabling a €20 million bid. While it’s reported no agreement has been made, Silva is allegedly pushing for the move. Given the creative nature of the young Portuguese forward and the arrival of Gonzalo Higuain it’s no surprise he’d like to ply his trade in Spain, where shifty forwards can typically find more luck.

This follows Milan’s earlier rejection of a loan deal (no option or obligation to purchase). Many speculate that either Gennaro Gattuso is hoping for Silva to find his way back into the side or Leonardo could be holding out for more funds and a permanent move.
Time will tell with the transfer window winding down in a little over a week’s time.
