According to reports from The Mirror, Silva and his father, Jorge, arrived in Wolverhampton on Friday. Both were photographed with Wolves chairman Jeff Shi having dinner on Friday evening.
Should the deal go through, which seems just a formality, he will become Nuno Espirito Santo’s first signing of the summer.
Silva renewed his contract the Estadio Dragao in 2020, in a deal where he has the highest contracted release clause in Portugal at £111million.
The youngster has previously been linked with a number of Europe’s elite clubs, and it looks like a cracking piece of business from Wolves.
He holds the records as Porto’s youngest debutant in a league match, youngest starter and youngest scorer.
Wolves were heavily reliant on Raul Jimenez throughout last season, and they have been desperately looking to sign another striker.
