Arsenal open talks with Bundesliga club over £34M striker’s signature

Arsenal are claimed to be in talks with Eintracht Frankfurt over the transfer of Andre Silva, who the Express claim is available for around £34Million.

The Portuguese striker has been limited in minutes so far at Euro 2020, coming off the bench late during both of their matches thus far, but with Cristiano Ronaldo selected for the sole centre-forward role you cannot complain all that much.

Ronaldo currently sits joint-top of the goalscoring ranks for the tournament thus far, tied with Patrick Schick, but Silva must still be full of confidence after an amazing campaign in Germany, where he scored 28 league goals in only 32 outings, outscoring Erling Haaland, as well as being credited with eight assists also.

Should Arsenal strike a deal, his limited minutes during the tournament could allow him to be more fresh than some of his rivals, especially after a gruelling calendar since the Coronavirus pandemic hit.

The Transfer Window Podcast claims that we have already opened talks over his potential arrival, after the club’s owners signed off on a whopping transfer budget.

They claim that Silva is being considered as a replacement for Alexandre Lacazette, who with only 12 months remaining on his contract is a potential departee.

Is Silva the perfect option to fire us back into contention of the top four(or even higher…)?

      Guy*

  2. Yossarian says:

    Very impressive league goals per game last season

  3. Reggie says:

    If and it is a big IF we are interested in him, we would have to sell either lacca or auba first, otherwise it wont happen.

  4. Sylva says:

    Rumor Rumor Rumor Arsenal yet to sign any player when others are doing so. When they are ready to spend hope there will be quality players left 😁😁😁.
    Can’t really trust Josh Kroenke

    Oh,!!🤗🤗🤗
    My Sweet dreams is about to come to Pass!!
    God, let dis happen.🙏🙏
    I have clamoured Andre Silva endlessly..😊
    Coming to Arsenal now!
    There remains Wilfred Zaha and Yres Bissouma!!
    A Great Arsenal team is Emerging!!💪💪🙂

      What are actually the qualities of Andre Silva? I followed him from AC Milan but couldn’t find any. Check the majority of the 28 goals scored are from penalties or headers. No hold-up, no link up, no speed. He is meant for small/mid-table teams. He is not the guy to take Arsenal forward. If Arsenal really want to improve its striking force, they should rather target Isak. Nothing else

      1. guy says:

        agree Clemento. Not as good as his stats imply.

    2. guy says:

      Tells us a lot about your Andre Silva opinion that you want Zaha as well!

  6. Max says:

    Get it done already ……. We need a goal machine and Andre Silva is the guy

  7. 03 gooner says:

    I’m all for this one. We need a target man. Silva scored 28 goals last season and he’s good In the air. Looks like laca and Eddie are on their way out and Auba balogun and martinelli are similar in style

    1. Rashid80 says:

      Your last statement is something to rethink about.. Totally different kind of players

  8. guy says:

    Im not so sure hes a good buy even if its more than a rumour. He scores a lot of tap ins and penalties, doesnt contribute to build ups. Plus he flopped at his two clubs before Eintracht, so doesnt settle quickly. For me Yaremchuk at Gent is not only a far better player, in that style but is also available, and way cheaper.

    1. The-Real-Vieira-Lynn-4ever says:

      Guy, I think you might be underestimating Silva, as I watched him all season long and he’s certainly not a one trick pony…I was quite impressed by his movement without the ball and his link-up play potential…not to mention, he’s scored 36 goals in his last 42 matches…the fact that Arteta’s tactics, if you can call them that, have a tendency to rely on a considerable amount of crosses and Silva is incredibly adept with his head, might be a real win-win for us offensively, as that would require opposing defenders to be more positionally honest thereby leaving some 1 v. 1 scenarios for Auba and Saka…at present, I rate him quite a bit higher than Yaremchuk

      In my dream scenario, we would pursue Sabitzer, Dumfries, one of either Pelligrini, Kessie or Bissouma, one of either Silva, Daka or Vlahovic(I think Isak’s price will be too high) and sort out our Keeper situation, as we need someone who’s confident on the ball…this only applies if we have a decent transfer kitty and we get rid of Bellerin, Laca, Xhaka, Reiss, Eddie, Lucas, AMN, maybe Leno and hopefully Willian

      these players would vastly strengthen our midfield and give us some much-needed tactical flexibility…based on the turtle’s pace of our management team this will be a bridge too far, but one can always dream

      1. Vinnie2000 says:

        Thank you very much!
        I have Hollering Andre Silva on dis site since d start of dis year..
        Now some can see his Talents!!
        Silva is exactly d kind of Striker we need now!!
        Fast, Bit Aggressive and Hungry for Goals!!
        Laca is not a good scorer while Auba is kinda Sluggish!!
        Silva will get us Far more Goals!!

    What I request is that let kse and arteta go away so that we can be able to buy top player not this ones of 17m yet we need to challenge for trophies. Completely doesn’t make since at all by again going for simple and cheep player like lokongo, why not Madison and hasam uorer of Lyon. Please kse and artets out out out with no mercy. I ask aresenal fans to all wake up and say no this time if no good players are bought in

    1. Goonerbeall says:

      Patrick, remember who recommended Lokongo: Thierry Henry who might not be a top coach but knows a good player when he sees one. Personally, I would jump and grab him. Belgians have recently produced a number of good players

  10. Patrick says:

    We need to be very serious of our club, it is not factory but foot ball club and I kindly ask for some one with potential to buy our beautiful club away from kse family and appoint capable caoch to lead the team. This time we say no for kse, no for kse. Kse out out out. Arsenal should go back to its wining days. Where are arsenal heroes???? Why don’t you combine money and buy our club. Plse buy our club away from this man.

    1. Wal says:

      Nice one Patrick, At the end of the day if arsenal continue like this there will be little or no meaningful progress. Cannot compete with Clubs like Manunited or Chelsea who have quality players in most positions. This ensures a level of consistency in winning enough matches to qualify for top 4. Arsenal needs a change of aproach in building a quality winning squad.

  11. GERALD OKORO says:

    With £90m I can get in great players.

    My strategy is this;
    Sell off Lucas, Xhaka, Willock, Niles, Guenduzi, Bellerin, Reiss, Nketiah, Mavpranous, Chambers, Kolasinac , Leno .These players can give me a net £120m). If I add it to the £90m I have, I can get the below players in

    Bring in
    Aouar(£20m) Bissouma (£40m), Correa (exchange with Lucas +£8m), Locatelli (£40m), Brandt(direct swap with Guendozi), White(£45m) celik (£15m) Lb £20m. Onana £7m, Ryan on loan

    I will give Laca a new two year deal…we don’t have to sell our experience players out.

    With the total money in the box (sales +£90m) we get these players and even have like £20m left

    1. Jesse says:

      Nice one!

  12. Jakes Mradu says:

    If he is in the news….then he is not an arsenal target……!

  13. adams mutavi says:

    Buy Kessie,,,,and we r good to go! Don’t just buy anyone…and then after a year we start another clear out of flops

  14. Mohamed Noor Saril says:

    Why buy players from lower leagues n relagated teams when they themselves cant help their team to improve or survive. Mind you they are not cheap.But we sell our players like a fire sale when they are better than the one we wanted to buy.Please think of it.Its not rocket science formula.
