Everton and Serie A giants AC Milan are also in the hunt for the defender but the Daily Express believes that the Gunners and Liverpool are currently the front-runners to sign the Athletic Bilbao star.
Amorebieta is set to leave San Mames at the end of the current season after following Fernando Llorente’s lead in turning down a contract extension with the Basque outfit.
The news has alerted a host of top European clubs, with Amorebieta available on a free transfer in the summer.
The player reportedly rejected a deadline day move to Arsenal in favouring of staying in Spain and the Venezuelan international is certain to be one of the most sought after bosmans when his contract expires.
Amorebieta has made over 250 appearances for Bilbao during his time at the club and he is regarded as one of the finest centre-backs in La Liga.
The 6’4″ star caught the eye during Bilbao’s progress to the Europa League final last term, where they beat Manchester United in the last eight.
