Athletic Bilbao coach Ernesto Valverde has confirmed interest in signing Chelsea star Cesare Azpilicueta.
The Chelsea fullback has been in superb form for the Blues this season and has been a real mainstay in the Blues team.
However, he has been linked with a move back to Spain, and Velverde has confirmed he is looking to shop in the Premier League this January.
As quoted on the Sky Sports website, Valverde said: “We coaches ask for a lot of players.
“You’re always looking. But the most crucial thing is that the players want to come to the club.
“Signing a player isn’t just about money, they need to want to come to Bilbao.
“Players at Chelsea, Arsenal and Atletico will tell you ‘I’m happy here, I do not want to leave’.”
