The 29-year-old hit-man played a major part in Zaragoza's promotion campaign last term, but has slipped out of boss Paco Flores' first team plans this time around.
The burly frontman has made just one substitute appearance for the Aragon-based outfit to date this campaign, and seems set to move on once the transfer window reopens.
Yordi was linked with a lucrative move to Spartak Moscow during the summer but ultimately the player opted against the transfer, but the one-time Blackburn Rovers loan star admits he is ready to seek pastures new.
"Players as much as clubs must be open to study any offer that comes in," he declared.
"This is for the good of everyone, but it is another matter whether they interest you."
Speaking of Vitesse's interest he continued: "I know that they are following me, but I don't know the details.
"At the moment it's satisfying to know they have me on their agenda.
"It will now be a question of talking, but my first option is to stay even though my situation at Zaragoza is not the most beautiful."
The main stumbling block to any transfer would be the financial aspect as the Dutch outfit have very limited financial resources.
Vitesse would look to broker an initial loan deal, but with just one year left on the player's contract Zaragoza would prefer to negotiate a permanent deal for a sizeable fee and that could put the striker beyond the Dutch outfit's reach.
