Valencia remain locked in talks with Real Mallorca for striker Aritz Aduriz.

Los Che see the centre-forward as a replacement for Birmingham City signing Nikola Zigic.

But Mallorca risk pricing Aduriz out of a move to Valencia at their current €5.5 million valuation.

Aduriz is aware of Valencia coach Unai Emery's desire to sign him and they both share the same agent.
