La Liga ace still on Arsenal’s radar

The North London club are being linked with many players at the minute and are on the lookout for players who could contribute to a new spine. With star man Jack Wilshere being eyes up by Barcelona’s Daniel Alves this week, Wenger is keen to get the fans back on side and has singled out Athletic Bilbao’s Venezuelan international defender Fernando Amorebieta.

The centre back has played over 250 games for the San Mames-based club, yet is looking for a way out and is keen to leave in the summer. Given the fact that he will be going on a Bosman is understood to make the deal an even more attractive proposition for Wenger too.

The player’s agent Gines Carvajal claimed that whilst Arsenal are in with a chance of landing the player, there are also several other interested parties and noted to Izvestia that: “We have had some contacts with Anzhi [Makhachkala], they were ready to make a good offer, but my client wants to play in England, so the transfer to Russia was not possible. We are in talks with Arsenal, he could join them in June.”

Would Amorebieta be a good addition for the Gunners or do they need more of a household name? Rate this rumour below.
