The Real Sociedad star is out of contract in the summer and is expected to quit the Spanish outfit.
A host of sides have been linked, but Moscow rivals Spartak and Dinamo have both taken a keen interest in recent weeks.
Now Spartak have revealed that talks are ongoing - but the 26-year-old forward may prove too costly.
