AC Milan have been linked with a move for Manchester United and Liverpool target David Silva.
San Siro boss Silvio Berlusconi, the Italian president, is understood to be looking for investors to fund a January spending spree and has reportedly made Valencia midfielder Silva a prime target.
The Italians would be willing to pay about £25million for the Spain international, who can play on the wing or in a more central role.
The 23-year-old was considered by United this summer as a potential replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo, while Liverpool boss Rafa Benitiez publicly admitted his interest but was angered by leaks involving the negotiations.
Silva also interested Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus in the summer, but cash-strapped Valencia managed to see off suitors with their high demands.
