Promoted Levante are looking to continue their recruitment drive with the capture of Real Zaragoza defender Alvaro.
Laurent Robert and Frederic Dehu have already joined the Liga new boys, while deals have been set up for Cesar and Damiano Tommasi.
Brazilian centre half Alvaro could join the list of arrivals at Levante after the club confirmed their interest in the player.
Zaragoza rate the 28-year-old in the £4 million bracket, with Alvaro having a further 12 months to run on his contract.
Contact has been made between the two clubs, although Levante president Pedro Villarroel concedes it will be tough to broker a deal.
Villarroel said: "The target is not easy, but we are patient because he will be a key component for our new project in La Liga."
Zaragoza coach Victor Fernandez is reportedly willing to sanction Alvaro's sale as he does not count heavily on the defender in his plans for next season.
