Leeds have remained adamant that the former Celtic hit-man will remain at Elland Road this summer, but D'Amico is still trying to engineer his client a move away from West Yorkshire.
Following the decision to sell Harry Kewell for a cut-price £5 million to Liverpool, the agent believes Leeds could be forced to cash in on Viduka for a similarly reduced fee to ease their precarious financial situation.
"I am still talking to interested clubs. Maybe the price will not be so high because I have seen what has happened with the Harry Kewell deal where the transfer fee was not very much," stated D'Amico.
"Leeds may have to sell Mark to bring in some money.
"I do not know because I am not the chairman of Leeds United but I do think that this is the right time for important clubs to buy Mark. This is the moment they have been waiting for.
"We have a lot of meetings every week with clubs and I have recently spoken with people from Lyon who are interested in Mark and who could offer Champions League football next season."
