AC Milan owned striker Andre Silva has been tearing up the Bundesliga since the resumption of the league last month. The Portugal international was loaned out again by the Rossoneri after a meagre spell at Sevilla last season in a swap deal with Eintracht Frankfurt for winger Ante Rebic. The 24 year old had only scored striker 4 goals in the league prior to the restart and 3 of those came in his first 4 games. Since the restart, he has scored a staggering 7 goals in 8 games bringing up his league tally to 11 goals for the season with 2 rounds to go.

The striker has also scored twice in the Europa League and twice in the DFB Pokal bringing his total in all competitions for the season to 15 goals. He has also provided 5 assists. This is an improvement of last season's 11 goals in Spain and the 10 he got in Italy the year before. This is the fourth season in a row where the striker has netted in double figures in all competitions but is his best single season since his FC Porto days. He will likely be bought out by Frankfurt as he has helped them win vital points that will look to save them from relegation.
