Andre Silva is finishing 2020/21 with a flourish, with the striker having netted his 26th and 27th goals of the season in the Bundesliga.

The 25-year-old was at the double against relegated Schalke 04 on Saturday, but could not prevent Eintracht Frankfurt from losing 4-3.

Silva has been in sizzling form in recent weeks, and is certainly looking like a bit of an oversight by Wolverhampton Wanderers.

A report from Transfermarkt claimed back in February that Wolves did actually look at moving for Silva in the January transfer window.

In the end, Wolves swooped for Willian Jose on loan from Real Sociedad, which is a move that has not really worked as everyone had hoped.

Silva’s brace yesterday means he now has 27 in the league.

That is the biggest haul from a player in one season for Eintracht in the club’s history – the previous record-holder was Bernd Holzenbein with 26.

Only one game now remains for Eintracht this season, and Silva will be hoping to increase his tally further.

Silva would be a great Wolves signing

He really is starting to realise that huge potential now.

Silva’s move to AC Milan a few years ago didn’t really work out for him, and many questioned if he had actually been overhyped.

But this season he’s been fantastic and the fact he’s now made history at Eintracht underlines his renaissance.

It’s probably unlikely Eintracht will look to sell this summer, but if there was any inkling of that then Wolves should try to facilitate a deal.
