A host of Premier League clubs including Chelsea, Arsenal, Spurs, Newcastle and Manchester United are scouting Athletic Bilbao attacker Gorka Guruzeta, according to reports in The Sun.
The 21-year-old frontman joined Bilbao from Basconia in 2015 and has scored six goals in 14 appearances for the Basque side’s B team. Guruzeta has impressed scouts with his pace, skill and finishing ability. The talented youngster is very much a modern forward who can play as a striker or from either wing.
His physique is also a major asset and his height, 6 ft 2 inches, has lead to comparisons with former Bilbao and current Spurs striker Fernando Llorente.
Guruzeta’s contract expires next summer and the Premier League clubs monitoring him are thought to be intersected in signing him on a free next summer instead of making a bid in January.
As the video below shows, whichever one of these clubs wins the race for the 21-year-old’s signature, they will be getting not only a hugely talented attacker but a superb all-round footballer.
