Real Madrid are set to make Athletic Bilbao goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga their first January signing. The Spain international is in the final year of his contract and shows no sign of agreeing an extension. Real have been keeping tabs on the situation as they look to bring in a new long-term No.1. MARCA reports an agreement between the two clubs will be reached in the coming weeks, with the deal going through when the window reopens. Real aren't willing to risk waiting until the summer with a host of clubs keen on Kepa - and will pay out his €20million (£17.6m) release clause.
