Atlético Madrid are said to be closing in on the signing of Eintracht Frankfurt star André Silva.


According to Sky Germany, the 25-year-old striker is currently looking likely to depart Frankfurt at the end of the season.

Silva has been touted for a move to Real Madrid, but their rivals Atlético are thought to be leading the race for his signature.

"This is a very, very hot topic. There have already been many talks and negotiations," said Sky transfer expert Marc Behrenbeck, who went on to play down speculation that Frankfurt could pull off a swap deal with Real Madrid involving Silva and on-loan striker Luka Jovic.

"Luka Jovic earns too much for that. It would be almost impossible to pull off such a deal," said Behrenbeck.

Silva has found the net 26 times in 31 appearances for 'Die Adler' this season. His contract expires in 2023.
