Liverpool are showing interest in Athletic Bilbao defender Fernando Amorebieta, according to Marca.
The Reds have already made an enquiry into the availability of the Venezuelan, and they are expected to make an official bid in the coming days.
The highly rated stopper has just one year left on his deal at San Mames, and the player recently rejected a new contract offer by the club chiefs.
Amorebieta is now pondering his options and even he is more inclined to staying in Bilbao, a serious offer from Anfield could make him change his mind.
New Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers believes the player would fit perfectly into his style of football, given that the Venezuelan is a centre-back who is very comfortable on the ball.
The 27-year-old has largely impressed playing for los Leones last season, and he managed to score 3 goals in 28 La Liga games.
