"A player who can play in all three positions would be awesome, because playing in that position means you're always fighting for game time so the more positions you can play in, the more opportunities you'll have". "We have not had any offers for any player in our squad and no club will pay the release clause".

Former Athletic Bilbao coach Valverde acknowledged that he would like to have the squad ready as soon as possible, but he knows that the club has to have patience during the transfer window.

"We're not closed to any options until the last day but I think that's the same for any club".
