Arsenal and Manchester City can land central defensive target Adil Rami for as little as €9million, as his club Valencia decided to lower their asking price.
According to Marca, Valencia manager Miroslav Dukic wants to hold on to Rami but the France international is no longer happy at the Mestalla and they are ready to cut their losses.
Both Arsenal and Manchester City have been credited with an interest in the 27-year-old centre-back and they could now get him for €3million less than is previous value.
Arsene Wenger is in need of defensive recruitments after captain Thomas Vermaelen was struck down with a back injury that look set to rule him out for up to three months.
Meanwhile new Citizens boss Manuel Pellegrini may see Rami as the ideal replacement for Kolo Toure, who joined Liverpool on a free transfer earlier in the summer.
The report in Marca claims Valencia were previously looking for a fee no lower than €12million, but his desire to leave has meant they are willing to drop their asking price to as little as €9million in order to avoid having an unhappy player on their hands.
