Arsenal set to swoop for Amorebieta

Athletic Bilbao defender Fernando Amorebieta could make a move to Arsenal this summer after the club withdrew their contract offer.

Los Leones receded their five-year €1.8m offer to the 27-year-old after he asked for a wage increase.

And it seems, according to AS, that the Premier League team may come in with a contract offer of their own and swoop the Venezuelan international for a reduced fee in June.

Amorebieta has been almost ever-present for Marcelo Bielsa's side this season, but the Basque side look resigned to losing him this year, rather than repeat the Fernando Llorente saga they have endured this term.
