Official: Sevilla sign Andre Silva

Sevilla have officially taken Andre Silva on loan from Milan with an option to buy, pending a medical.

The Portugal international flew in today and was greeted at the hotel by Sevilla director Joaquin Caparros.

It’s reported the one-season loan costs €5m with an option to buy for a further €30m in June 2019.

“Sevilla FC and AC Milan have reached an agreement for the loan, with option to buy, of André Silva, subject to the passing of a medical,” read a statement.

“At 22 years old, André Silva is one of the most promising forwards in European football, first making his breakthrough with Porto in the 16/17 season when he scored 16 goals in 32 league games. 

“He would score 24 goals in 58 games for the Club, making him a key member of the Portugal squad - 12 goals in 26 matches - and leading him to a transfer to AC Milan.

“For the Italian side, despite not being afforded the continuity he desired, Silva still managed 10 goals in 40 appearances (with just 18 starts).  

“André Silva becomes the Club's seventh signing of the 18/19 campaign.”
