Athletic Bilbao have announced an agreement with Torino to sign Spanish winger Alex Berenguer.

The transfer is reportedly worth an initial €10m plus €2m in variables. Torino had valued Berenguer, 25, at €15m but the clubs found a compromise.

Berenguer has agreed a four-year deal and is undergoing his medical ahead of putting pen to paper.

Athletic have a policy of only signing player with Basque blood and Pamplona-born Berenguer fits the bill.
