The 25-year-old will cost Murcia é¼180,000 (£120,000), though Bilbao have inserted a clause which will enable them to buy back the hit-man at the end of his first season should they desire.
Karanka has put pen-to-paper on a three-year deal, and becomes Murcia manager Joaquin Peiro's first move in the transfer market since arriving at the club.
However, the former Malaga boss is expected to add to the capture of Karanka this week, with young Real Madrid midfielder Luis Garcia top of his wish-list.
