AC Milan striker will be made available for in the January transfer window, according to La Stampa.

The Portuguese was only signed from in the summer for €38m (£33.5m) but has struggled for form in Serie A. Spanish newspaper Sport reported last week that and were watching developments after coach criticised Silva’s technical ability and performances.

It now seems that the 22 year old could be allowed to leave after just six months. La Stampa report that Milan’s wage bill has rocketed above €50million, following their €200m spending spree before the start of the season, and they are looking for ways to reduce their expenses.

The Italian side are unlikely to qualify for the following a difficult start to the season, and the club can’t sustain such spending levels outside of European competition.

It means Silva, who has scored eight goals in ten games this season, but none in Serie A, could leave on loan, along with his team mate Hakan Calhanoglu.
