La Liga ace waiting for Arsenal to pounce

amorebieta.jpgArsenal never seem out of the news here at the Football Transfer Tavern and due to the growing story in the Daily Express it seems another day of discussing Arsene Wenger’s men is in order.

The club have been linked with a host of defenders in the recent weeks with Swansea City’s Ashley  Williams thought to be top of their transfer wishlist and now are set to chase Athletic Bilbao defender Fernando Amorebieta instead. The Basque club have of course already seen Javi Martinez leave for Bayern Munich last summer and are now set to lose yet another one of their defensive minded stars.

The player himself is willing to wait until a move comes off and is fully aware that he has been on Arsene Wenger’s radar for some time now. Despite having made 15 appearances for the Basque side this season the player has his heart set on a move and his brother even told Marca that: “We are in contact with Arsenal.”

So strong is the player’s desire to move to the Emirates Stadium he will not consider offers from any other club – including mega-rich Russian outfit Anzhi Makhachkala and again his brother noted: “We have had contact with Anzhi who are very interested in his services but given the desire to play in England that move cannot take place.”

Will Amorebieta gain his move to Arsenal? Rate this rumour below.
