It is still possible for Guti to join Blackburn Rovers this summer, according to the Real Madrid midfielder's agent.
Sam Allardyce has expressed an interest in the player and it has been confirmed that preliminary contact has been made between Rovers and the Spaniard's representatives.
Rovers have also been linked with moves for James Beattie, Benjani, Frederic Piquionne and Kris Boyd recently, although they are not expected to launch a bid for Burnley striker Steven Fletcher.
The 33-year-old's agent, Zoran Vekic, said of the chances of Guti moving to Ewood Park: "It is possible. Little talks have gone on and, while there is nothing happening at the moment, it is possible."
Meanwhile, Galatasaray are being linked with Australia international midfielder Vince Grella who has endured an injury-ravaged two-year spell with Rovers.
Fellow Australians Harry Kewell and Lucas Neill are already at Galatasaray, and it is believed Grella is keen to join them in Istanbul.
The 30-year-old moved to Rovers in August 2008 on a four-year deal from Torino but has started only 25 Premier League games in his two seasons with the club.
