Catania and Palermo are chasing Beira-Mar defender Yohan Tavares.

The 23-year-old centre-back has been in fine form this season and his representative, Ulisses Santos, says interest is growing.

"The three big clubs in Portugal and other foreign clubs like the kid but at the moment there are no concrete proposals," Santos told O Jogo.

"Beira-Mar is open to studying the subject but with exact conditions.

"To exit in January depends on the clubs."
