Man Utd, Arsenal And Chelsea Among A Series Of Premier League Clubs In Pursuit Of 21-Year-Old Bilbao Star


The likes of Chelsea, Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are all said to be in pursuit of Athletic Bilbao’s forward Gorka Guruzeta.

The 21-year-old currently plays for Bilbao’s youth system and has impressed heavily during the current campaign. The youngster has already scored six goals in the first 14 games in Spain‘s third tier and this has reportedly caught the eye of a string of Premier League clubs.

Bilbao’s B team is scheduled to play Manchester United’s U-23 side on Wednesday and reports suggest that Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur will be sending scouts to watch Guruzeta in action.

The player primarily plays as a central striker but can also be deployed as a wide striker if needed. Guruzeta’ current contract with Bilbao ends at the end of the current season meaning that the Premier League clubs can grab him up for a really cheap price.
