Athletic Bilbao striker Aritz Aduriz is pushing for a place in Spain's Euro 2016 squad at the age of 34.

Aduriz, who turns 35 in the next fortnight has scored 25 goals in all competitions this season for the Basque giants as the calls grow to bring the striker to France in the summer.

He has played for Spain once, coming off the bench in a game against Lithuania in 2010, but his form has meant that Spanish boss Vicente del Bosque is reportedly considering bringing the striker back into the Spanish squad.

Graham Hunter spoke to Off the Ball last night about the striker and he hopes Aduriz will force his way into the Spanish squad. "Del Bosque won't pick him at the minute... What might happen is that del Bosque will look at him and say; 'Could he pair with Costa? Yes. Could he pair with Alcacer? Yes. Could he pair with Morata? Yes.' I hope he goes. He would be there on merit."
