Arsenal ponder deadline day swoop for Amorebieta

Arsenal are weighing up a shock bid for Athletic Bilbao defender Fernando Amorebieta.

Sources close to the Gunners say chief scout Steve Rowley has been watching several defensive transfer targets.

Arsenal are seeking a tall, powerful centre-half, capable of playing alongside Thomas Vermaelen and Amorebieta fits the bill.

The Venezuela international is off contract in June.
