Adil Rami (Valencia)Valencia are set to allow Adil Rami to leave the club on loan in January after his recent criticism of manager Miroslav Djukic and some of his team-mates, according to reports from ESPN.

The French centre-back is a rumoured target for Manchester City and Arsenal, who have been tracking his progress for some time.

Rami has not trained with Los Che since his verbal attack on Djukic, and the club are now willing to let him move on.

The 27-year-old is currently serving an in-house suspension for his actions and will not be considered for first-team action.

City and Arsenal could take advantage of the situation, with the La Liga side ready to sanction a temporary exit.

The club are believed to see an exit as the best solution to the problem and will let Rami move as long as a potential suitor is willing to cover his salary and pay a loan fee.

City may swoop, with Manuel Pelegrini believed to be far from content with his current defensive options.

The Citizens are without summer arrival Martin Demichelis who is sidelined through injury and have little cover for first choice players Vincent Kompany and Matija Nastasic.

Arsenal are also in the fight, with the Gunners believed to be in the market for January additions.

Should Arsenal or Manchester City move for Adil Rami?
