Sherman, who will turn 30 this month, is coming off a season-ending Achilles tear, as well as a surgical procedure on his other Achilles.
If healthy, Sherman, a four-time Pro Bowl selection who excels in physical man-to-man coverage, would be an ideal fit for the 49ers' 4-3 defense.
You have to suffer - Wenger reveals support from Ferguson
They also lost 2-1 at home to Swedish minnows Ostersunds FK, surviving a huge second-leg scare to set up this tie against Milan. Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger knows they can not afford to underestimate Watford tomorrow.
A deal with the 49ers is no certainty, as Sherman has plenty of other options. But Adam Schefter reports "there's a real chance" San Francisco will be his first and last visit. It's also questionable when Sherman would actually be available to play. Sherman discussed Friday on KIRO-AM in Seattle what he's looking for in a new team.
Sherman is recovering from two separate surgeries on his left and right Achilles tendons.
Since debuting in 2011, Sherman has become one of the most prominant cornerbacks in the league. Sherman has more interceptions (32) than any defensive back drafted since joining Seattle.

After linebacker Malcolm Smith, now with the 49ers, intercepted the pass, Sherman gave Kaepernick the choke sign and mockingly extended a handshake to Crabtree.
"... Would I go to a young secondary that is like we were when we were younger and help them grow and help them advance?" Smith, who caught Sherman's tip of a Colin Kaepernick pass for a game-clinching interception in the 2014 NFC title game, is under contract with the 49ers through 2021 after signing with them previous year.
After that Sherman-led loss to the Seahawks in the NFC Championship Game, the 49ers went into steep decline.
