Report: Wolves have made enquiries over Benfica winger Rafa Silva

Wolves have reportedly made some enquiries about the possibility of signing Rafa Silva this summer.

The Benfica star is enjoyed a really good season over in Portugal.

So far this term he has made 42 appearances and scored 12 goals and made 17 appearances.

Silva made headlines at the weekend, after he scored a truly amazing solo goal against Estoril.

The 28-year-old carried the ball pretty much the entire length of the field after a botched corner from Estoril and scored.

It was something one might expect to see from Adama Traore.

It seems Wolves might have some genuine interest in the player.

He was linked for the first time earlier this month, but Jeunes Footeux reported that he was valued at £42 million.

Now, there is a new report from A Bola, which claims Wolves have had contact with Benfica over the attacker, and that he could actually cost around £17-£25 million. There is also a suggestion that there would be performance related add-ons in any deal.

The fact Bruno Lage already knows the player from his time as manager of the club is also mentioned.

An enticing asking price for Rafa Silva if true

This is more like it.

Silva is a really exciting player who makes things happen. And so, the idea that he could be sold for £25 million or potentially under is exciting.

Silva would become the oldest wide attacker at the club if he were to joined. It would be good to have someone in there with a bit more experience.

The 25-cap Portugal international’s numbers this season are impressive.

One gets the feeling there’d be a good chance of him coming in and hitting the ground running quickly.
