Real Zaragoza may turn to Bordeaux's Albert Celades in their search for a defensive midfielder after shelving plans to sign Nice ace Everson.
The Spanish outfit have been looking to bring in an experienced anchor man and had pinpointed Everson as the ideal recruit.
The Brazilian has impressed in Le Championnat with Nice, and Zaragoza made an enquiry regarding his availability.
But an asking price of é¼3.7 million for the 28-year-old has deterred Zaragoza from making a January bid for the South American.
Instead, Zaragoza may now make a late bid to sign Celades (pictured) who is on a season-long at Bordeaux from Real Madrid.
The Spaniard has failed to shine during his spell with Les Girondins and Zaragoza are prepared to take over his loan for the remainder of the season.
