Silva hopes to replicate the success of former RB transfer bust Alexander Sørloth, who regained his scoring touch during a second loan-stint in Spain last year. Sørloth eventually moved to Sociedad on a permanent basis for a reported €10 million earlier this summer. Amid 31 Bundesliga appearances - during which he only went the full 90 minutes five times last season - Silva scored four goals and pocketed seven assists.
