€38m Portuguese striker could replace Alexis Sanchez in the summer

Arsenal could come back in for AC Milan’s Portuguese striker AC Milan Andre Silva in January, with the Rossoneri set to make him available in order to recoup a loss.

The San Siro outfit have made a poor start to the new season having won four and lost four of their last eight games in the Serie A and apart from a Europa League hat-trick against Austria Vienna, Milan’s €38m (£33m) summer signing has failed to make much of an impact at San Siro.

It is already looking like Milan will not finish top four this season and secure a place in the Champions League, with Juventus, Napoli, Inter, Lazio and Roma all better-placed, and recently both Adidas and Audi cut their ties with the club, meaning they could take a huge hit at the end of the season.

As reported by The Sun, the club could look to prepare for that eventuality by selling Silva, who was supposedly wanted by Arsenal in the summer.

Arsenal are likely to sell both Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil during the winter window, rather than lose the duo for absolutely nothing at the end of the season.

Sanchez and Ozil have both been offered huge hikes on their current wages to remain at Arsenal, but they don’t seem to want to commit to new deals at the struggling club.

Silva is naturally a striker, but can operate anywhere along a front three if needed – just as Sanchez does for Arsenal.
