Wolves are joint-favourites to sign AC Milan forward Andre Silva during the January transfer window, according to the latest bookmakers’ odds.

BetVictor have Wolves and Swansea priced at 4/1 joint-favourites to seal a swoop for Silva, 22, before the end of the month.

Everton (6/1) and West Ham (12/1) are also thought to be in the running to snap up the 18-times Portugal international, who only signed for AC Milan in the summer for £34million from Porto in a deal that could see that fee rise up to £35.5million.

Italian news outlet Corriere Della Sera has previously reported that Wolves had made a bid for Silva, but saw it rejected by the San Siro club.

Silva has only made four starts in Serie A since his move to Milan, failing to score in the Italian top-flight.

However he has been more prolific in Europe and in total the Portugal international has made 28 appearances and scored eight goals – all of them in the Europa League.

Wolves are widely thought to be on the lookout for a striker this month.

Nuno Espirito Santo has already sealed the signing of Rafa Mir from Valencia, ahead of Real Madrid, adding to his prolific attacking options of Diogo Jota and Leo Bonatini.
