The 26-year-old has impressed for Catania over the past 12 months and the club’s general manager Pietro Lo Monaco admits he will struggle to keep Silvestre at the club.
“Top of the list of those moving on is Silvestre,” Lo Monaco told Itasportpress.
“I’d struggle to keep him here, considering what a great player he is. There are two Italian clubs tracking him, but Liverpool and Villarreal are also interested in Silvestre.
“Silvestre is worth as much as Thiago Silva and scores more goals.”
