Arsenal defeated in race to land top target

amorebieta.jpgHere in the Football Transfer Tavern we were more than impressed last season with the form of Athletic Bilbao yet this season the club have gone off the radar and are set to lose more of their top talent in the summer – some of which may be on its way to Fulham according to talkSPORT.

Despite Arsenal coveting Venezuelan international Fernando Amorebieta for a long time now, it seems that Martin Jol and his Cottagers side have already met with the player’s representitives and are close to securing a deal which would see him arrive in the summer.

The problems at the Basque side this season have been well documented and given the club’s steadfast refusal to allow their top talent to leave last summer on the back of such a good season both in Europe and also in the league, mutiny occurred and now not only will Fernando Llorente be leaving for Juventus this summer but 28-year-old Amorebieta is also set for a move to the Premier League.

The defender has barely played for the San Mames-based side this term after suffering the same fate as Llorente and seen himself frozen out due to his refusals to pen a new deal.

Arsenal fans? Are you gutted to have missed out on this man? Rate this rumour below.
