Arsenal open talks with Eintracht Frankfurt over Andre Silva amid Barcelona interest

Arsenal have opened talks with Eintracht Frankfurt to sign Andre Silva.

According to the Transfer Window Podcast, the Gunners view the Portugal international as the perfect striker to boost their goal tally for next season.

Silva, who was linked with Manchester United in April, scored 28 goals in the Bundesliga last term.

It is unclear whether Alexandre Lacazette will stay at the Emirates, but the arrival of Silva would surely seal his exit.

Barcelona are also monitoring the 25-year-old.

Silva recaptured his goalscoring touch after a big money move to AC Milan ended in just 25 league appearances for two goals.
