Marco Silva on Wolves' managerial shortlist
Wolves have sounded out the availability of Hull boss Marco Silva as their search for Paul Lambert’s successor continues, the Express & Star understands.
Silva was on Fosun’s radar last summer when they were finalising their £30million takeover of the club.
And with Hull having been relegated from the Premier League, Wolves hope to tempt him to Molineux with the promise of a transfer war-chest this summer.
However, the 39-year-old is in demand, having earned plaudits during his brief tenure with the Tigers despite their relegation.
It’s been reported that Watford, West Ham and Southampton also have eyes on Silva, who will take his time before deciding his next job.
It’s thought he won’t remain with Hull and has a clause in his contract allowing him to leave after relegation.
Like fellow candidate Aitor Karanka, Silva is a client of Jorge Mendes.
As reported yesterday, Fosun won’t be rushed into making an announcement on their managerial plans, although sources suggest that Lambert has effectively already left the club.
The Chinese conglomerate are undertaking a thorough review of the season – and on who their next boss should be. Candidates have been approached both at home and overseas and are in and out of work.
