Fabio Silva makes Wolves transfer request as Julen Lopetegui’s plan is outlined

Wolves striker Fabio Silva has given an indication of how he sees his future in the summer.

The 20-year-old started the season on loan at Anderlecht, and got off to an electric start in Belgium, where he registered 15 goal contributions in 32 games. He was subsequently signed by PSV Eindhoven on another temporary contract in January as part of their quest to win the Eredivisie title.

Silva was tasked with earning regular minutes away from Molineux this term, having made the majority of his appearances for Wolves off the bench since his £35m move in 2020. The young striker is learning under the PSV boss and hero of the Manchester United Ruud van Nistelrooy and has made a promising start, scoring three goals in seven league games.

Whether Wolves manager Julen Lopetegui decides to make him part of the first-team squad next season or opts to let Silva continue his development in another loan move remains to be seen. However, when questioned by the Dutch media, Silva made it clear that he hopes to stay at the Philips Stadion next term.

“If it’s up to me, I will definitely stay here for one more season because I think it’s good for my development,” Silva told Voetbal International, as reported by Sport Witness.

“The last goal we scored (in a 5-2 win) against Cambuur, with Xavi (Simons), Anwar (El Ghazi) and myself, showed how much fun we had together. I would like to continue with that.
