Athletic Bilbao have dismissed reports that Liverpool have inquired into signing defender Fernando Amorebieta.

Speculation mounted yesterday linking the Reds with a £10million move for the Spanish centre-back with an defensive crisis at Anfield.

Dani Agger is struggling with a back problem, whilst Sunday’s 2-1 defeat to Tottenham saw head injuries to Jamie Carragher and Martin Skrtel, who were already suffering with lack of fitness in the build-up to the game.

But Bilbao president Fernando Macua says there have been no approaches for Amorebieta and the 24-year-old is not for sale.

“This player is not for sale and we have received no contact from Liverpool,” he said.

“At this moment he is a key member of our squad and we have no interest in letting him go.”

To mark the end of the 30-year wait for a league title, the ‘Liverpool Mishmash’ poster is available to order exclusively on This Is Anfield — the history of the Reds in one image!
