Real Zaragoza are chasing Sunderland defender Paulo da Silva.

The Paraguay international remains a target for Mexico's Cruz Azul, but would prefer to remain in Europe.

Zaragoza hope to snap up Da Silva for a cut-price fee in the coming days.

Black Cats boss Steve Bruce won't stand in the defender's way should he agree to move on.
