Valencia tell the Premier League duo what Rami will cost.
Valencia have told Arsenal and Manchester City that if they want to land French defender Adil Rami it will cost either side £7.75m, according to Marca.
Los Che do not want the centre-back to leave at all, but the lure of the Premier League coupled with the Spanish club’s lack of Champions League football for the 2013/14 season and Valencia’s poor financial situation, means Rami could well be sold.
Initially the side wanted £10.3m for the 27-year-old – the France international’s buy-out clause – but the club have since decided to lower that amount in order to tempt potential suitors into buying, but at the same time also getting a good price.
Valencia manager Miroslav Djukic is also keen to offload Rami since it has become apparent that the defender is not happy at the Mestalla Stadium and Djukic believes this could become a disruption to the rest of the squad.
The centre-back has spent two years in Valencia since a £5.3m switch from Lille in 2011, going onto make 89 appearances in the past two seasons in all competitions.
Rami has also been capped 26 times by France and will often partner the Gunners’ defender Laurent Koscielny at the back.
Both City and Arsenal have become interested in the Frenchman due to a need to strengthen their defences and the player’s relatively low price.
The Citizens have previously shown interest in Real Madrid’s Pepe, although at £22m and the Portugal international being 30-years-old, this hardly represents value for money.
