AC Milan have completed the signing of Andre Silva from Porto for a reported transfer fee of €38 million.

The Serie A giants were keen to sign a new striker and turned their sights to the Portuguese after refusing to match Torino’s €100m valuation of Italy international Andrea Belotti.

Silva arrived in Milan for a medical on Monday and becomes their fourth new arrival ahead of next season after the captures of Mateo Musacchio, Franck Kessie and Ricardo Rodriguez.

The 21-year-old joined the Porto youth academy in 2011 and made his first-team debut in December 2015.

Portugal international Silva, who has scored seven goals in eight caps, had since developed into a key player at the Estadio do Dragao and scored 21 goals in 43 appearances in all competitions in 2016-17.
