Gabriel Silva UdineseInter and Juventus are both reportedly keeping an eye on Udinese defender Gabriel Silva.

The 22-year-old has been with the Zebrette since joining from Brazilian side Palmeiras in 2012, but could be tempted to leave the club if he receives an offer from one of the two giants.

According to TuttoUdinese.it, Juve are monitoring the player and could be preparing a January offer for him in order to reinforce their defence and sign an alternative left back, though they could be met with competition from the Nerazzurri.

The Brazilian is also flexible when it comes to taking up new positions on the field, as Francesco Guidolin has been using him as a midfielder in some cases lately, which is seen as an admirable trait to by his pursuers.

Silva has left Udinese twice on loan during his time with them thus far, having spent time with both Spanish side Granada and Italian team Novara in 2012.
