Real Madrid will sign FC Porto striker Andre Silva next summer for a fee close to €58 million, according to the Daily Star. Arsenal inquired about the striker and were willing to spend around to €30 million, but the Portuguese club answered back and said that an agreement with Madrid was already in place, per that same report.

It's clear that the British press is not always very reliable when it comes to transfer news and even more so when not a single Spanish outlet has published about Madrid's reported interest in Andre Silva. He's a young striker with plenty of potential, but Los Blancos could and should look somewhere else if they want to improve their attacking line.

Reports last week suggested that Alvaro Morata could be ready to leave the club after failing to earn a starting spot under Zidane, so if the Spanish striker ends up away from the Spanish capital president Florentino Perez will need to sign another striker.
