Liverpool after £15m centre back: Surely too expensive!

The latest defender linked with a move to Anfield seems a bit of a rip off!

Athletic Bilbao defender Fernando Amorebieta is believed to be a summer transfer target for Liverpool and Newcastle United. (various)

The lanky 23 year old Venezuelan may be a decent player and his club has one of the meanest defences in the La Liga but the 15m tag is still ludicrous, after all Rafa got Martin Skrtel for £6.5m and he already looks like a very smart signing. I rate Benitez to be a better judge than this so I reckon it won’t happen. Would Newcastle or Liverpool fans support such a high priced move for a ‘nobody’?
