Bild reports that RB Leipzig striker André Silva wants to leave RB Leipzig in the summer as he has become unhappy with his game time.
The 27-year-old has spent most of this season coming off the bench for Leipzig and when he has played he has not reached the levels he did at Eintracht Frankfurt where he scored 45 goals in 71 games. In Silva’s two years in Leipzig, he has scored 26 goals in 94.
The situation is likely to get worse for Silva as Red Bull Salzburg’s Benjamin Seško is to join Leipzig at the end of the season. Leipzig are preparing for the departure of Silva as new Leipzig sporting director Rouven Schröder was at Bayer Leverkusen vs Union Saint Gilloise scouting striker Victor Boniface.
Leipzig will not block any move for Silva but they will hope for at least €20m for Silva as his contract expires in 2026 and the club wish to make over €100m from player sales to meet UEFA’s FFP regulations.
