Wolves striker Fabio Silva will reportedly rejoin the squad for the upcoming trip to Portugal.

The striker, who turned 21 yesterday, has been away from Compton Park so far this summer.

He and Pedro Neto were part of the Portugal U21s squad for the recent Euros in Georgia.

The pair were permitted to have some time away after that tournament and come back after Wolves returned from their first trip to Portugal.

Yesterday, Wolves uploaded a group photo with tennis starlet Harry Searles, who triumphed at Wimbledon in the Boys singles.

In the photo, Wolves fans noticed that Neto had returned – but there was no Silva.

Fabio Silva to return for Wolves’ next trip to Portugal

Fans have been wondered where Silva is at the moment, and why he was not in the photo with Searle and the Wolves squad.

Today, the Express & Star have reported that Silva will link back up with the squad tomorrow as they fly out to Portugal again for more pre-season training.

It is not stated why Silva has not returned to the club at the same time as his fellow Portugal U21 teammate Neto.

It is possible that Neto decided to return early of his own accord.

But Silva will be on the plane for Wolves’ trip to the Algarve, with the club taking on FC Porto next Tuesday.

Porto, of course, are Silva’s former club, with Wolves having paid them a reported £35.6 million to sign the striker in the summer of 2020.

They are also the former club of manager Julen Lopetegui.

Lopetegui wants a look at Silva

So Silva is not on the verge of leaving the club – as some felt yesterday when he did not appear in the group photo.

But he will seemingly now feature under Lopetegui for the very first time.

It has been reported previously that Lopetegui wants to have a look at Silva, before a decision is made on him.

It has been suggested that Wolves would be open to selling the player for around £21 million.

There have also been suggestions that Silva is looking to depart.

But that is going to depend on if another club comes in and offers a suitable amount of money.

Even then, Lopetegui may not be willing to let Silva, who is on a long contract at Molineux, leave.
