Arsenal are keeping tabs on Anderlecht’s Lucas Biglia, and could make a surprise move for the Argentinean international by the end of the month, according to Metro.
The Gunners scouts have been closely monitoring the situation of the 25-year-old defensive midfielder, who has recently encouraged big clubs to make offers for his services this summer.
Biglia recently told Belgium publication Het Nieuwsblad:
‘I think I have ended my cycle at Anderlecht and I want to do something new.’
‘The board know what I want to do. I know that playing for the Argentina national side means I get plenty of exposure and opens lots of doors.’
‘Sometimes I feel I have to do more because I am playing in Belgium. I am aware that it would be easier if I was playing in a different league.’
It is understood that Arsene Wenger wants to bolster his midfield options ahead of the new season and the Argentinean, who possesses a good turn of pace, strength, excellent ball control and technique, is believed to be on the Frenchman’s summer shopping list.
The 5’10’’ midfielder is thought to be valued at around £7.5 million, but reports suggest that Wenger will make an opening offer of £6 million in the upcoming weeks.
Biglia, who has made over 150 appearances for Anderlecht, has also been targeted by Liverpool and Tottenham.
