The promising 21-year-old currently plays for Maccabi Haifa, the club from whom Racing have already signed two Israelis in recent seasons - goalkeeper Dudu Awat and midfielder Yossi Benayoun (pictured).
The Cantabrian club have another Israel international on their books, Omri Afek, and, following the successful integration of all three players, are hoping to add another Israeli to their ranks.
However, it has been suggested Racing might have to part with Benayoun - who has made the biggest impact of the three - to improve the club's economic situation.
Benayoun is reportedly being watched by a host of English clubs, including Liverpool and Tottenham, and could be sacrificed to balance the books.
Meanwhile, Santander are still looking to land another goalkeeper with Ricardo - number one for the majority of last season - having returned to Manchester United.
Latest reports suggest that their principal target is Real Zaragoza's Raul Valbuena.
