CSKA Moscow have confirmed that they would sell Keisuke Honda if another club makes a "reasonable offer" for the midfielder.
AC Milan and Everton have both been linked with a move for the Japan international, whose contract with the Russian side runs out in January.
The side's general director Roman Babaev told Sport Express: "[The situation] has not changed. Honda could be speaking to another club at the moment, because the rules allow it. But our position is clear. We are ready to let him go if we receive a reasonable offer.
"We are pleased that Milan are interested but we also have to be realistic. Yes, his expiring contract affects his market value but there is a limit as to how low we can go.
"We are not worried if he ends up leaving the club on a free transfer. It is a difficult decision to make, part ways with Honda now or keep him until his contract expires."
Honda has scored 23 goals in 102 appearances in all competitions for CSKA.
