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Bilbao have withdrawn the offer of a new deal as a result and Amorebieta has reportedly been attracting interest from Arsenal and ambitious Russian club Anzhi Makhachkala.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

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
