The Che are hoping to take advantage of Depor's financial predicament to seal cut-price raids for the striker and midfielder.
Talks over the transfers are believed to have begun some two weeks ago, according to sources in the Spanish media.
Valencia are ready to offer é¼9 million (£6 million) plus Kily Gonzalez and another, as yet, un-named player for Dutch international Makaay, while Rufete will be offered as part of a swap deal for Victor.
Valencia will, though, face competition for the signature of Makaay, this season's 'Pichichi' in Spain, as Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich have already submitted a bid in the region of é¼15 million (£10 million) for the hit-man.
However, Depor president Augusto Cesar Lendoiro has denied entering into negotiations with the Bavarian outfit, despite rumours suggesting that Munich are ready to use Giovane Elber in part-exchange to secure the services of Makaay.
Depor are in urgent need of raising capital, as they still owe Primera rivals Espanyol é¼7 million (£4.5 million) from the transfer of midfielder Sergio two seasons ago.
There has been talk that the Galicians will have to return the player to Espanyol if they do not resolve the debt soon, and thus, despite Lendoiro's reluctance, Depor look likely to be forced into selling Makaay.
