David Arroyo linked to Euskaltel

Movistar climber David Arroyo Durán is being linked with a switch to Euskaltel for the coming season.

The 32-year-old, who's spent eight years at Eusebio Unzúe's outfit, was informed earlier this summer that he's not being kept on by the team, and has 'till this date not signed with a new team. Several Basque newspapers have the last few weeks briefly mentioned Arroyo as a rider Igor González de Galdeano could be keen on getting his hands on, and if the Twitter rumour mill is anything to go by, that might just be the case.

Nieves Moya, cycling journo at Tuttosport, tweeted a few days back that if Euskaltel or Saxo Bank were interested, talks could be started. Fellow scribe Roberto Tejedor was more precise, saying "Tug of war between Euskaltel and Saxo Bank to secure the services of David Arroyo (Movistar)". CyclingFever added Arroyo to Euskaltel as "a rumour" in their "Cycling Transfers 2013" overview.

Whether these rumours are to be believed we'll soon find out, as the UCI's 20th of October deadline is getting ever closer.
