The experienced 27 year old looks likely to be the latest to flee San Mames as his contract is set to run to it’s conclusion this summer, making the centre-back available on a free transfer.
The Athletic Bilbao man has over 250 appearances with the La Liga side to his name but seems keen to move on having seen Javi Martinez move to Bayern Munich and Fernando Llorente due to join Juventus in the summer.
Arguably both Arsenal and Liverpool could do with a fresh defensive option as both sides have suffered mishaps at the back.
Arsenal have three international level centre-backs to choose from but captain Thomas Vermaelen has looked far from comfortable at times this season. With Johan Djourou and Sebastien Squillaci set to leave there will be room for a defensive addition.
Similarly Liverpool have had to call upon veteran Jamie Carragher far more often than they would have planned for, though the one club man has still been solid when called upon. Daniel Agger suffers with regular knocks and Sebastian Coates is yet to make an impact in the Premier League though Brendan Rodgers has been able to rely on no-nonsense Martin Skrtel as a steady influence at the back.
