Fabio Silva Draws Attention from German and Spanish Football Clubs
After paying almost £35 million to transfer from Porto in 2020, Silva hasn’t lived up to the expectations placed on him at Molineux.
In 72 games across all competitions, he has tallied five goals and six assists, while receiving just 262 minutes in the Premier League in 2023–2024.
But since Julen Lopetegui was replaced by Gary O’Neil on the eve of the new season, the Portugal Under-21 international has fallen down the rankings and hasn’t been used as a substitute in the last five games.
Silva is expected to find a new home, either temporary or permanent, since Wolves are rumoured to be looking for at least one new offensive player in January.
That is the current idea, according to the Express & Star, and the 21-year-old is clearly interested.
Moreover, a number of Spanish teams are purportedly ready to participate, with Silva and Wolves prioritising consistent playing time over club reputation.
Although the club in issue has the option to purchase Silva, Silva is more likely to go out on loan. However, the report suggests that a sale could not be out of the question.
At a moment when most people believe Wolves still have work to do to be on the right side of FFP, Wolves will benefit from any option.
If they can aid Jonny leave, which would be beneficial given he was recently expelled from the first team due to “a training ground incident”, their cause will benefit.
Wolves, who face West Ham United on Sunday afternoon, are now ranked 13th in the Premier League rankings going into this weekend’s play.
