Arsenal keen on signing super striker, scouts watch ace’s performance

Premier League, Transfers

According to a report from O Jogo, Arsenal are looking to sign highly-rated Porto striker Andre Silva.

Manager Arsene Wenger has sent scouts to watch over the ace’s recent performance in Porto’s Champions League match against Leicester City last week.

Wenger has been monitoring the performance of Silva over the last couple of months, and the French manager has had he eye on him since he watched him at the U20 World Cup.

The 20-year-old’s performances have been impressive for Portugal, scoring 4 goals in his last 3 games, with a total of 8 goals in just 10 U21 appearances.

However, the news outlet further reports that the Portuguese starlet just signed a five-year deal with Porto which contains a £52.8m release clause, something which could put Arsenal off.

He has also starred domestically this season with 5 goals in 7 league appearances for Porto and 2 assists, plus another assist in the Champions League, impressive stats which are said to have caught the attention of Wenger.
