The midfielder has one more season left on his current contract, and reports in Spain claim Malaga will consider cashing in on him this summer rather than risk losing him for nothing in 12 months' time.
The 26-year-old has enjoyed a decent season despite the club's travails in La Liga and has been a virtual ever-present.
His agent Ramon Arasa confirmed that there is widespread interest in the player, but insisted any deal would be reliant on Malaga.
"The decision will correspond to whether Malaga want to accept the possibility of negotiating with any club," Arasa stated.
It is thought an offer in the region of é¼5 million would persuade the Andalusian club to do business.
Aston Villa were reportedly monitoring the Spaniard earlier in the campaign, and there is still understood to be interest in the player from England.
