Fabio Silva Could Have Been in Italy Before Rangers Loan, Says Agent

Fabio Silva could have been playing in Serie A this season, according to his agent Carlos Oliveira.

Silva joined Rangers on loan from Wolverhampton Wanderers in January, but Oliveira revealed that there was significant interest in his client from Italian clubs before that move.

“Yes, there was a lot of interest at the beginning of the season and then also in January,” Oliveira told Tutto Mercato Web. “[The Italian market] is a bit particular, many clubs conclude their final transfer deals in the last few days.”

While Silva’s time at Rangers wasn’t a complete success, Oliveira believes it was a valuable learning experience for the 21-year-old.

“The second part of the season, however, was positive,” Oliveira said. “Although he didn’t play in his role, Fabio made himself available to the coach and the team, scoring goals and making assists. It was a learning experience, he learned about the game better and I’m sure it will be useful to him in the future.”
