More dynamite for the attack
André Silva was born on November 6, 1995, in Gondomar, Portugal. He began his career in FC Porto's reserves before making his debut with the first squad at the age of 20. With 24 goals in two seasons with the Portuguese club, he was transferred to Milan, who spent 38 million euros for his signing. Silva was loaned to Sevilla after a season with the Rossoneri in which he scored ten goals. He scored 11 goals in LaLiga. During the 20-21 season, he was loaned to Eintracht, who acquired his rights a year later. Silva had two outstanding seasons at the German club, scoring a total of 45 goals.
These figures enabled him to join Leipzig, a club that paid 23 million euros for him and where he has spent the last two seasons, scoring 26 goals, one at the Reale Arena in the UEFA Europa League play-offs.
Now he joins the Txuri Urdin team to add quality and goals to an exciting season.
