The 21-year-old is valued at around £12m and looks likely to make a big move to Europe this January, with the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea and Real Madrid all after him.
Silva could also do a good job for Arsenal in midfield, with Arsene Wenger short of options in that department following injuries to Jack Wilshere and Mikel Arteta.
It could be that the Brazilian youngster will be tempted by the offer of more regular first-team football at the Emirates Stadium.
