Athletic Bilbao are eyeing Atletico Madrid midfielder Raul Garcia.

The talented midfield general is a personal request from Bilbao coach Joaquin Caparros, who is in the middle of new contract talks.

Among Caparros' demands is greater say in transfer policy - which includes Bilbao making a pitch for Raul Garcia.

While Atletico are willing to offer the player a new contract, Bilbao hope to turn Raul's head with a long-term deal.
