Italian media outlet Tuttosport is reporting that talks have already begun between both parties over a straight swap deal involving the young Andre Silva moving to Monaco and Radamel Falcao moving in the opposite direction to AC Milan.

The Rossoneri signed Sliva during the last summer transfer window for €40m from Portuguese side Porto. However, with only two goals to his name, the Italians have decided it is time to move him on and find a more experienced goalscorer.

Falcao who is now 32, could be allowed to leave Monaco as long as the club receive an ideal replacement over the summer. The Colombian striker has scored 24 goals in 35 games this term. The last two seasons have seen him return to the kind of form which saw Monaco splash out €60m back in 2013 from Atletico Madrid.

Silva is a young striker who Monaco feel would reduce the age of their squad and the potential to turn into one of the worlds leading strikers.

Newly promoted Premier League side Wolves have also expressed a serious interest in Silva, but it seems the young forward fancies a move to a more prestigious club rather and a newly promoted side. However, with the Portuguese connections at Wolves, Sliva could be tempted to join up in the summer.

Silva started off his career with Porto before moving onto AC Milan last summer. He has experienced a dip in form at club level. However, on the international stage, he is still banging in the goals for Portugal. He has scored 11 goals in 20 appearances so far for Portugal. Expect him to be started for his national side during this summers World Cup in Russia.
