Portugal international striker Andre Silva is a transfer target for Arsenal as AC Milan may be forced to sell their star players, according to a report.

Arsenal are reportedly tempted to make a move for AC Milan striker Andre Silva, as they continue their search for an Alexis Sanchez replacement.

The Gunners are expected to lose Sanchez to a rival side after their star forward opted against committing to a new contract beyond the end of next year.

After missing out on Monaco youngster Thomas Lemar and Riyad Mahrez of Leicester City, The Sun claims that Silva is the latest name to be added to manager Arsene Wenger's wishlist.

A £33m summer purchase for Milan, the Portugal international has seen his big-spending side make a poor start to the Serie A campaign and may be offloaded in the New Year.

The report suggests that, after losing sponsorship deals with Adidas and Audi, the Rossoneri possibly need to bring in money from player sales and Arsenal are among those looking to take advantage.

Silva has scored four goals in six appearances for Milan since joining, all of which have come in the Europa League.
