Fernando Amorebieta: Athletic Bilbao defender wanted in Serie A

The Venezuela international is out of contract at the end of the season and he has failed to agree terms regarding an extension at San Mames.

Bilbao have withdrawn the offer of a new deal as a result and Amorebieta has reportedly been attracting interest from Arsenal and ambitious Russian club Anzhi Makhachkala.

However, it is understood that the centre-half's representatives are currently in Italy talking to clubs about a possible Bosman move in the summer.

Juventus, AC Milan and Inter Milan are all thought to be chasing the 27-year-old, who has made over 250 appearances for Bilbao.

Italian champions Juventus have already agreed a deal to sign Amorebieta's team-mate Fernando Llorente, with the striker also quitting Bilbao on a free transfer at the end of the season.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
