After Liverpool’s lethargic display yesterday against Tottenham, the reds are continually being linked with defenders.
Liverpool have so far banked £17M in transfer profits in 2009 and after yesterday’s performance Liverpool will be wise to not only use that profit but also receive some form of summer transfer kitty from the club’s owners.
Fernando Amorebieta is the 24 year old centre-back for Athletic Bilbao who is believed to have been watched in last night’s Spanish ‘Charity Shield’ game against Barcelona according to the Daily Mail.
The player who was born in Venezuala, but has dual nationality has played for Spain’s under 21 side ruling him out of a place with the Venezualan national side.
Liverpool will have to stump up around £10M to secure the defender’s services, and he has over 100 appearances to his name at the Spanish La Liga side.
The reds are also still linked with Michael Turner of Hull, and Ryan Shawcross of Stoke City.
