Joan Capdevila is keeping his options open as he waits on a contract offer from Deportivo La Coruna.
The Spain international left-back has yet to receive a contract offer from his club and with his existing deal to expire in June, it is thought he is attracting attention from elsewhere.
Former club Espanyol are known to be keen but it is interest from England that is gathering pace according to his agent, Horacio Gagglioli.
"The situation has not changed," said Gagglioli.
"Depor have not presented any new offer, even though his deal finishes in June.
"The kid has never discarded the option of staying, but in this moment we have many offers from European clubs.
"Principally to England but the decision depends on Capdevila.
"Still, football is unpredictable and anything is possible but we'll wait until the end of season."
Meanwhile, it would appear Depor's defensive ranks could be further depleted in the summer with news of Barcelona's growing interest in Jorge Andrade.
It has been reported that the Portugal international's agent Jorge Mendes has already engaged in discussions with Barca president Joan Laporta.
Andrade has established himself as one of the top defensive stalwarts in La Liga over the past few seasons and were he to quit Depor, then there would likely be plenty of suitors competing with Barca for his signature.
