  • Andre Silva atribute overview

Italian heavyweights AC Milan have continued their summer spending spree, announcing the signing Andre Silva from Porto for a reported transfer fee of €38 million.

Italy's AC Milan have signed striker Andre Silva from Porto.

He would become their fourth recruit in as many weeks following the signing of Swiss left-back Ricardo Rodriguez (Wolfsburg), Ivorian Franck Kessie (Atalanta) and Argentinian centre-back Mateo Musaccio.

Silva scored 22 goals and got eight assists in all competitions last season for Porto helping The Dragons to a second place finish in the Liga NOS and a place in the last 16 in last year's Champions League. In October previous year, Silva scored the first goal in the match for the Portuguese national team. Capped eight times by his country, he has scored seven goals in those outings, including in Friday's 3-0 win over Latvia. Silva has a physical presence in the final third and his strength allows him to hold the ball up well.


Ronaldo celebrates with Silva. Moreover, spending time with the iconic striker on the global scene, learning from his experience, will only be beneficial to Silva's development in Milan.

Milan were bought by the Chinese-backed Rossoneri Sport Investment Lux company in April and the new owners are underlining their ambitions with heavy investment ahead of a return to Europe next season in the Europa League.

Silva says "this opportunity has been a pleasant surprise".
